In connected rail systems, passengers remain online through free Wi-Fi inside the train and in platforms. Legacy infrastructure of railways is being replaced by modern train management systems. In train management systems, trains transmit data bi-directionally among themselves and the network control center. The network control center is the CPU of a train management system.
The railway passenger mobility and services system consists of Wi-Fi devices and on-board entertainments. A railway passenger information system is an automatic system to provide users of rail transport system with necessary information through voice, visual, or other media. The system consists of information announcement system and rail display system. Diesel locomotives are engines that run on diesel. Electric locomotives are engines that run on electricity. Multiple units (MU) are trains coupled with other units of the same or similar type and controlled by a single driving unit in front. MU are of two types, diesel multiple units (DMU) and electric multiple units (EMU).
DMUs run on diesel and EMUs run on electricity. A tram is a rail vehicle which runs on urban streets for commuting short to medium distances. Metros run on sub-ways or above the ground or both and are used for mass public transport in cities. Freight wagons are used for goods carriage. Positive train control is a type of train protection system used to control and monitor train movement. Communication-based train control is a type of railway signaling system using telecom infrastructure and is placed between track equipment and train in a train traffic management system.

By service, the connected rail systems market is segmented into passenger information system (PIS), automated fare collection system, passenger mobility and services, train tracking and monitoring solutions, IP video surveillance, and predictive maintenance. By rolling stock, the market is classified into electric locomotive, diesel locomotive, EMU, DMU, subway/ metro vehicle, tram car, passenger coach, and freight wagon. By railway signaling system, the market is segmented into communication/ computer-based train control (CBTC), positive train control (PTC) and automated/ integrated train control (ATC).
Rising passenger traffic is expected to see increase in data consumption which is anticipated to increase the demand for connected rail markets. Rising implementation of IoT (Internet of Things) is anticipated to present a huge opportunity for the connected rail market.
