Huawei debuts LTE-R, Urban Rail Light Cloud, 5G DIS products

Wednesday 12 June 2019 | 14:42 CET | News
Huawei officially released its Urban Rail Light Cloud, next-generation LTE-R, and 5G Digital Indoor System (DIS) products during the UITP Global Public Transport Summit 2019 in Stockholm. Under the theme "Cloud-Based Urban Rail, the Art of Mobility", the company outlined the ways in which the innovative ICT products will enable an era of fully-connected, digital rail transportation.

Huawei said these products provide cloud-based services, broadband connectivity, and better-connected digital railways to help rail operators build safer, smarter, and more efficient rail transportation systems, continuously improve transportation capacity and drive service innovations.

Urban Rail Light Cloud

Leveraging advanced virtualisation technologies, this platform converts computing, storage, network, and security resources from physical devices into virtual resource pools. These resources are then allocated to application systems through virtual hosts, virtual network devices, and virtual security devices. It enables the integration of data centre devices, and lowers device procurement and deployment costs.

LTE-R platform

The 'LTE-Railway (LTE-R) Solution' for rail wireless communications was jointly released by Huawei and its partner Tianjin 712 Communication & Broadcasting (TCB 712). Already being deployed in China, it enables high-speed and intelligent communications to ensure safety and efficiency for rail passengers. The LTE-R platform supports 5G-oriented evolution and interconnectivity with GSM-R. The platform’s advanced features include multiple trunking services such as Mission Critical Push-to-Talk (MCPTT) voice, video, and data, and leveraging one LTE-R network to enable train control, train dispatching, passenger information system (PIS), CCTV, and other rail services. Together with 5G, the platform will enable a future of intelligent railways where all things are connected.


Huawei also launched 5G LampSite, a 5G network platform for smart transportation hubs. As part of the DIS platform, 5G LampSite uses multiple advanced technologies to support both LTE and 5G, and allow easy installation and simplified O&M. It lays the foundation for smart transportation hubs by offering intelligent communications services for a large number of passengers and enabling smooth and efficient passenger flow management, security checks, and ticketing.
