Rail and Transportation

Scroll to Discover


Trains are expected to last for approximately 30 to 40 years – but the same is not true of other technology, equipment and components used within the Rail and Transportation sector. The Rail sector is particularly vulnerable to obsolescence, with rail engineers expected to balance the 40 year life cycle of trains against the five to 10 year lifespan of on-train electronic systems and equipment.

This delicate balance means that obsolete technologies and components within the Rail sector can severely impact operational effectiveness and safety. While electronics manufacturers constantly innovate and introduce new products to maintain their own lead in the next-generation market, rail engineers must revalidate equipment and systems every time manufacturers roll out new products – and retire legacy technologies.

We know that reliability, resource support and confidence in documentation are ongoing issues for the Rail and Transportation industry. That’s why we have developed robust support solutions and strategies using sophisticated data intelligence catered to the Rail sector’s unique needs.
