The rapid acceptance of Ethernet-based networking in transportation infrastructures is providing many subtle benefits to traveler’s worldwide. Industrial Ethernet backbones offer high bandwidth to enable many IP-based applications. Advantech's industrial communication solutions are designed to fit in three different areas for transportation applications.
Onboard Applications: Including moving Passenger Information Systems (PIS), in-seat Video Entertainment Systems (VES), and IP surveillance systems.
dot Station Applications: Such as Passenger Information Systems (PIS), Fire Alarm Systems (FAS), and Automatic Fare Collections (AFC).
dot Wayside Control Applications

Onboard Applications
Advantech’s EN50155 certified M12 Switch fulfills a wide range of applications in moving means of transportation such as vehicles, trains or airplanes. It guarantees reliable performance under vibration and shock.
For Passenger Information Systems (PIS), this allows modules to connect with LCD and LED display boards which offer travel information, news and advertisements.
dot For in-seat Video Entertainment Systems (VES), this offers video monitors mounted on the back of every seat. This allows every passenger to choose their own audio and video on-demand movies, games and travel information.
dot And for video surveillance systems, this guarantees these devices can reliably connect with cameras for a variety of applications that provide increased safety and security
Station Applications
Fire Alarm System (FAS)
When a disaster happens, FAS systems implement detection and send out commands to switch fire equipment from normal operation to emergency modes, coordinating sub systems, such as traffic control, disaster relief and safety to keep losses to a minimum. The backbone network uses a redundant fiber optic ring with maximum self-healing time of 10 ms.

Automatic Fare Collection (AFC)
In modern public transport stations, automatic fare collection (AFC) systems includes ticket vending machines (TVM), ticket checking machines (TCM),and gate control systems which require layer 2 and 3 switch that can ensure fast, reliable, safe, redundant network.

Passenger Information System (PIS)
Advantech's industrial switch and serial device server as the core communication system of Passenger Information Systems (PIS),  which allows stations to control and transmit real-time information from its control center to all local stations with accurate, travel information, (including status, news, advertisement, and emergency information) to improve travel efficiency, safety and ease.

Wayside Control Applications
To control from the wayside control cabinet, there are specific controllers, including CBI, TCC, RBC, and TSRS to ensure non-stop operation. Advantech industrial Ethernet switches form a dual fiber optic ring network, and each controller is connected simultaneously to these 2 fiber rings. With the Advantech X-Ring technology which ensures that a backup circuit is established in just 10ms to compensate for errors such as broken links. This comprehensive redundancy concept offers maximum possible security.
