The company’s presence at the show comes after the major announcement of a partnership with ENGIE INEO to bring the world’s first broadband passenger Wi-Fi network aboard SNCF’s TGV high-speed fleet
Among the display will be HUBER+SUHNER’s optical connectors (Q-ODC), rooftop antennas and inter-vehicle jumpers, all of which are being supplied to SNCF, the French-based train company responsible for providing transportation for over 100 million passengers a year to destinations across Europe. The scale of the SNCF project speaks volumes of the trust companies such as SNCF have for HUBER+SUHNER to reliably carry out the project both efficiently and to a high standard.
“We look forward to Smart Rail Europe every year as it is one of the most important annual events dedicated to train technology, bringing together Europe’s leading rail providers, operators and infrastructure managers to demonstrate their latest smart rail technologies,” said Eric Louis-Marie, Market Manager Railway – Connected Mobility at HUBER+SUHNER. “This year, we are looking forward to meeting with our valued customers as well as potential customers and discuss how we can work together to create the best solution possible for enabling high-data-rate communication in their trains.”
With an ever increasing demand for connectivity within public transport, major operators such as SNCF are investing more and more money into technologies and services in order to rapidly build reliable and future-proof communication infrastructures into their fleets.
Thanks to its comprehensive portfolio of communication Components (optical cabling, antennas, Ethernet cabling) and its full range of Professional Services covering both Engineering and Supply Chain aspects, HUBER+SUHNER offers a unique combination of value propositions that enable an efficient execution of challenging technology upgrades on existing trains.
At its Booth (#C5), HUBER+SUHNER will demonstrate component highlights such as its Q-ODC harsh environment optical connector, its Sencity Rail MULTI antenna, its Gigabit inter-vehicle jumper cables and a conceptual indoor antenna with an integrated access point. Visitors will have the opportunity to discuss their projects with HUBER+SUHNER’s specialists and understand how the range of Professional Services could help in achieving challenging technical and timeline objectives.
“In high-dependent applications such as transportation, the reliability and quality of the technology in these new communication infrastructures are vital,” said Eric Louis-Marie, Market Manager Railway – Connected Mobility at HUBER+SUHNER. “Additionally, for technology retrofits where a broad spectrum of components is involved and time constraints are high, excellence in Supply Chain and Delivery has also become a key success factor for Project Managers. In both areas, HUBER+SUHNER is an enabler and contributes to make communication connectivity available to the millions of passengers who use trains for transportation every day.”
Visitors to Smart Rail Europe 2017 can see HUBER+SUHNER’s latest technology at Booth C5, at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam, April 5-6.
