Lilee Systems working with Cisco on positive train control

Apr 17, 2013 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Advanced railroad industry communications systems provider Lilee Systems said it is working with Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) to define, design, and implement the industry's first end-to-end communication architecture for positive train control (PTC) systems.


This joint effort aims to provide the rail industry with a solution to meet the mandate of the Rail Safety Improvement Act by the December 31, 2015 deadline.

Together, Cisco and Lilee Systems intend to offer an all-in-one solution that minimizes potential design and implementation risks, and provides for interoperability through proven and well-established technologies. The centerpiece of this architecture is the TransAir 220MHz Software Defined Radio, backhaul routers and switches, the core network, and a cloud computing platform. Each of these elements plays a key role in a robust communications structure where safety, performance, and efficiency are critical. A proof-of-concept network has been constructed in the San Francisco Bay Area to verify the end-to-end communication architecture.

Founded by leaders in the wireless industry and headquartered in California's Silicon Valley, Lilee Systems is the leading vendor of wired and wireless IP-networked communications products and solutions focused exclusively on the railroad and rail transit industry.
