Transportation Asset Management System

Asset Management is highly successful in companies that require a significant asset base for their operations, including electrical power, telephone and large trucking companies as well as railroads.

For companies in the transportation sector, it’s crucial (at a federal and most state levels) to fully update and account for all of the public assets that include roads, bridges and other facilities that form the basis of an effective Transportation Asset Management System.

For transportation companies, the ultimate goal is to maintain a quality level of service at the lowest cost possible, and to do this means keeping the infrastructure in as good or better condition than its present state; developing and implementing a logical capital improvement plan; and containing the costs of planning, building, operation and maintaining facilities and modes of transport, including taxis, motorbikes, shuttle buses, and other transportation equipment. Guaranteeing such acceptable levels of service to the customer yields positive results and contributes substantial profits for these companies.


The Challenge

Transportation systems continue to grow rapidly and become increasingly complex.

Government and private enterprises in the transportation sector are looking to quickly modernize and make changes with the following goals in mind:

Ensure on-time and consistent delivery of products and services – whether freight or passenger services. Have the ability to react quickly and decisively to threats and disasters.

In order to do the above, the transportation companies need to update their communication systems and replace legacy and multiple radio networks with a single and unified solution.

Operationally, this will mean upgrades or additions to the following mission-critical services, including:
  • Signaling
  • Anticipating operational conditions, such as
  • ETAs, weather conditions, route conditions
  • Onboard CCTV (closed circuit television)
  • Onboard emergency call points
  • Driver look-ahead
Main line railways can also benefit from this ground-to-train solution to complement their legacy networks with an overlay broadband network to support additional applications like M2(Machine to Machine), Onboard CCTV, Onboard entertainment/ infotainment and Platform TV. As a result, there is a demand for a single converged network for voice, surveillance, data, automation and IoT (Internet of Things) applications with specific real-time Quality of Service (QoS) requirements, industrial grade reliability and security.

The Redline Solution

Redline Communications’ fit-for-purpose technology, coupled with detailed operational knowledge and a means to demonstrate innovation and capabilities, is a key competitive differentiator to assist transport sector operators globally in transforming their operational processes.
