PBE Spider Rail

High speed rail travel has developed extensively in recent times, with many countries investing heavily in transportation infrastructure to support economic growth. Wireless communications is an integral aspect of this environment for track-to-train communications and signalling control. Equally, connecting the passenger to the outside world both for voice and data services is becoming an essential part of the passenger experience.

Supporting passengers' demand for connectivity on the move

Within metro systems, coverage is required to meet the needs of both the public for cellular communications and the emergency services, who need radio systems to effectively handle incidents and manage public safety.

The vast majority of the world's major cities have comprehensive metro infrastructures to allow people to move across the city in a rapid and efficient manner. Within these underground transport systems communications are key for the emergency services, who need reliable and comprehensive wireless coverage to enable efficient incident management and personal safety. Equally the ability for passengers to stay in touch whilst travelling via their mobile devices is something we've all come to expect.

PBE Axell has a proven track record providing high availability, reliable wireless DAS and coverage systems across many transport infrastructures; our equipment has been installed in over 70% of metros around the world.

PBE Spider Rail/Metro Leaky Feeder Solutions

Strong & flexible providing complete radio communication coverage

Simple, reliable voice & data communications

Radio waves travel through the air omnidirectionally, making radio in tunnels & underground environments difficult. PBE Axell’s Leaky Feeder solves this problem by forming an antenna that is installed throughout the area, providing complete radio communication coverage by ‘leaking’ radio signals into the environment, reliable and time-tested technology for voice & data communications.
