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.

Neu* zedas®cargo Rail Hub

Für die Digitalisierung von Bahnprozessen gibt es von ZEDAS – eine auf den internationalen Schienengüterverkehr ausgerichtete – Lösung für das Logistikmanagement. zedas®cargo ist eine modulare Standardsoftware, die den Wertschöpfungsprozess eines Eisenbahnverkehrsunternehmens (EVU) durchgängig abbildet und unterstützt.

Mit dem Rail Hub wurde zedas®cargo nun um eine webbasierte Logistikplattform für EVUs und deren Kunden erweitert. Mit dem modernen und ansprechenden Auftritt ist eine professionelle Interaktion zwischen dem EVU und seinen Kunden möglich. Die zentrale Schnittstelle bietet für beide Seiten zahlreiche Vorteile. Es gibt eine einheitliche und zentrale Datenbasis, wodurch der Prozess deutlich effektiver und effizienter wird. Denn erstens erfolgt die Interaktion zwischen EVU und deren Kunden teilweise automatisch und zweitens wird der EVU Kunde direkt in die Prozesskette eingebunden. Das spart der EVU viel Zeit, denn Daten der Kunden müssen nicht manuell übertragen werden.

Damit haben alle Transport-Beteiligten die Möglichkeit, den Transport effektiver zu gestalten, die Prozesstransparenz zu steigern sowie Durchlaufzeiten zu senken.

Transportaufträge

Transportaufträge können über das Kundenportal elektronisch erfasst, koordiniert und freigegeben werden. Dazu werden jedem Partner, die für ihn wichtigen Informationen übersichtlich zur Verfügung gestellt.

Zu den Buchungsaufträgen geben die EVU-Kunden Ihre Wagendaten bzw. Wagengarnituren an (Wagen, Container, Gut, Gefahrengut). Bislang lief das über E-Mail, Fax, und Excel. Nun können sie ihre Buchungen direkt im System vornehmen oder die Uploadfunktion benutzen und so ihre Excel-Datei beibehalten. Beim Upload wird die Datei validiert. Das sichert die Qualität und die Vollständigkeit aller Daten.

Im Portal ist der Status von Zügen und deren Wagen sowie deren GPS-Standort ersichtlich. Sowie deren Abweichungen zum geplanten Standort. Das ermöglicht nicht nur die Ortung einer Ladung, sondern auch die Optimierung interner Logistikprozesse.

Estimated Time of Arrival

Zudem kann der Kunde auf Wunsch genaue Angaben zur Ankunftszeit einzelner Lieferungen einsehen und hat durch die Kartendarstellung immer eine aktuelle Information über den Standort seiner Lieferungen. Da der Kunde nun Informationen in Echtzeit bekommt, ob und wie sich seine Lieferungen verzögern, kann er die nachfolgende Logistik oder auch Dienste darauf einstellen.

Die Software kombiniert hierzu Planungsdaten des gesamten Routenverlaufs und der Ressourcennutzung wie Trassen, Fahrzeuge und Personal mit aktuellen Zuglaufdaten. Diese Berechnung läuft immer automatisch und in Echtzeit. Störungen im Betriebsablauf werden sofort berücksichtigt und mit einberechnet. So prognostiziert die Software verlässlich die Ankunftszeit und die Zustellung des Kundeauftrags.

Durch die Möglichkeit, Benachrichtigungen per SMS oder E-Mail für verspätete Lieferungen zu konfigurieren, bleibt der Kunde auch up to date, wenn er nicht im System ist. Mit Hilfe der mobil-optimierten Weboberfläche kann der Kunde den Anlass, die Häufigkeit und Kommunikationswege der ETA-Meldungen für sich einrichten.

Mobiles Infoportal für Mitarbeiter – überall verfügbar und einfach zu bedienen

Beim Schienenverkehr, findet ein mobiler Informationskanal viele Anwendungsfälle. Wichtig ist hierbei, dass die Kommunikation zwischen Leitstelle und Lokführer so unkompliziert wie möglich gestaltet ist.

So kann beispielsweise jeder Mitarbeiter über das Infoportal seinen Dienstplan einsehen und herunterladen. Der Lokführer bekommt nicht nur die Informationen, welchen Zug er von wo nach wo fahren muss, sondern auch wie sein Dienst in Fahrzeit, Pause, Übergabe eines Zuges oder Bürozeit aufgeteilt ist. Zusätzlich hat der Mitarbeiter dabei immer sein Stundenkonto im Blick. Plus- oder Minusstunden und Urlaubstage können dabei jederzeit eingesehen und überprüft werden.

Abgesehen von einem mobil erreichbaren Dienstplan, kann jeder Lokführer seine Streckenkundenachweise im Blick behalten, um ein rechtzeitiges Nachholen zu organisieren und den Gültigkeitsablauf zu verhindern.
