Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) Solution

The traditional train-to-ground wireless communications solution (GSM-R) is reaching the end of its lifecycle and cannot ensure stable and reliable connections. Narrowband technology has small bandwidth and supports only voice and limited data services, which is insufficient for the development of intelligent and digital railways. As the successor of GSM-R, FRMCS fulfills the digital requirements of the industry and will continuously evolve based on the unified 3GPP specifications. Huawei's FRMCS solution is uniquely designed in terms of wide coverage, high reliability, and smooth evolution, which will facilitate the digitalization of railways.
