The solution’s impact has been estimated to:

  • US$2.3 million
  • give SBB better visibility into their rail system, reducing problem analysis efforts by about 33 hours each month — or about an hour a day.
  • simplify the overall management of the rail system and drive higher efficiencies with a single-view map and customizable reporting tools; and
  • provide a 2,000 minutes minimum reduction in delays per month.

The smarter rail solution enables SBB to monitor its more than 3,000-kilometer network of tracks and 800 rail stations all through one user interface.  The solution combines data from railroad track switches, stations and cars gathered from sensors and video at train stations connected by a fiber-optic cable network with 50,000 fixed and 20,000 mobile connections.

SBB’s management system is capable of tracking all of the IT and physical assets — switches and sensors — in one place to help ensure the punctuality of its passenger rail service and the safety of its riders while optimizing cargo movement and the maintenance of rolling equipment.
