On-Board Networking Solution for Rail-Train, Metro and Tram

When train cars are switched, re-configure network settings is normally required. Thus, railway operators need to have enough knowledge of Ethernet. This not only increases the cost of labor but also result in additional time.

Making it flexible for easy maintenance is biggest challenge for on-board network solution.
In most of train application, many train cars will be shifted according to different destination, which often becomes a maintenance issue when any car changes. As the different car devices were set with different IP address that would need to migrate into the same IP without any manual setting to keep the original train network.

Lantech Train Discovery Protocol (LTDP)
With LTDP-aware DHCP server, Lantech EN50155 switches can discover the current IP addresses and enable the switch to exchange the IP address when any car is merged. LTDP can also react on the link failure or node failure to keep the original IP range and maintain the remaining network function until the replacement is in place. It can also keep the config file when switch is swapped.

The video below explains how LTDP works.

World Energy Day on October 22: Is Germany the European energy-saving champion?

Is Germany the European energy-saving champion? According to a survey by E.ON and KantarEMNID, at least 14 percent of Germans believe so, but the reality is rather different. Of the ten European countries covered in the survey, Romania takes first place with a primary energy consumption of 18,515 kilowatt hours (kWh) per head each year.

Second and third places go to Turkey and Hungary, with an annual consumption of 19,271 and 28,296 kWh, respectively. Those questioned in the survey believed – entirely incorrectly – that these places would go to Denmark (16 percent) and Germany (11 percent).

They also placed Hungary – which in reality comes in third – in last place with just one percent. Only two percent of those surveyed thought that Romania, which actually uses the least energy, was Europe’s energy-saving champion.

All those questioned believed the title should go to a nation in the north of the continent. On average, across all the countries in the survey, 26 percent believe Sweden is the best at saving energy, hence it was placed top in nine out of ten countries among those questioned by E.ON and KantarEMNID – who were therefore entirely wrong. Incidentally, the Danes are the only ones to be firmly convinced – likewise incorrectly – that their own nation takes the title, with a total of 34 percent.

These results are part of the “Living in Europe” study, for which E.ON and KantarEMNID questioned around 10,000 people in the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Sweden, Turkey and the UK. The energy consumption figures are based on the World Bank’s World Development Indicators (2015), published by the Federal Statistical Office.

This press release may contain forward-looking statements based on current assumptions and forecasts made by E.ON Group Management and other information currently available to E.ON. Various known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors could lead to material differences between the actual future results, financial situation, development or performance of the company and the estimates given here. E.ON SE does not intend, and does not assume any liability whatsoever, to update these forward-looking statements or to align them to future events or developments.

Oracle changes business model for Java SE

primion would like to draw attention to the fact that Oracle is making changes to the Java SE business model.

Oracle does not seem to provide any further updates for Java SE 8 and following versions for free. In the commercial environment, a subscription model with costs is to be introduced so that customers can continue to receive updates.

Company’s should check what this change means for them.

Innovative „Train Ring“ is the best rail train solution – Switch Cars, No Reconfiguration

Reduce Cost with High Customer Satisfaction

During current train operation, train cars might need to be separated and reoriented due to more flexible operating requirement. Take MRT for example, it needs more cars during peak hours while only few cars are needed during offpeak hours. A longdistance train route may separate into two shorter trains and heading to different destinations at a junction point. When a train system has higher flexibility, it can utilize the resource and reduces operational costs.

When train cars are switched, reconfigure network settings is normally required. Thus, railway operators need to have enough knowledge of Ethernet. This not only increases the cost of labor but also result in additional time. Also, train car switching will cause the interruption of networks, effecting passenger information system and intrain WiFi service.

Passenger’s tolerance toward network interruption is limited and this is one of the important factors of customer satisfaction.

Train Ring vs. Existing Solutions

Common Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) and Coupling Ring can be applied to rail train network for redundancy of multiple train cars. However, each solution has its own drawbacks such as longer recovery time or nonautomatic recovery. Lantech provides a new solution called "Train Ring", which can automatically recover the network within 50ms without reconfigure the settings!

Lantech Train Ring is evolved from traditional Coupling Ring. It eliminates the setting process, and will automatically identify the primary and backup path dynamically, without any configuration required.

Lantech Train Ring allows train operators to rapidly change composition of trains with high efficiency and flexibility. Since all settings are done automatically, configuration errors and cost can be minimized. The recovery time of Train Ring is less than 50ms, so passengers can hardly recognize the interruption caused by topology change.
