Intelligent networks for your digitalisation needs

Article: Powerful network solutions are the basis of the digital transformation

Intelligent, robust networks are essential for a successful digital transformation. They create the necessary space for networking, IoT and digital growth.

The digital transformation is seeing the number of networked devices and the volume of transmitted data increase day by day – in our offices, our factories and along our railway lines. The technical network infrastructure that transports all this data and connects all these devices is often an underestimated component. Robust data connections are the basic prerequisite for successful digitalisation.

"Meeting climate protection targets, doubling passenger numbers, having 25 per cent of the freight market go via rail, increasing punctuality despite a growing number of construction sites on the network: we will not be able to achieve any of this without a digital transformation. We are laying the foundations for change with our smart connectivity solutions."

Today's requirements demand flexible solutions. High-performance wireless solutions for thousands of devices, "campus" networks for IoT solutions at individual sites, connections for edge computing or the reliable connection of remote facilities: DB Systel's network services interconnect all facilities within the DB Group – from office work stations through to complex sensor systems in depots, high-speed trains or even entire sites.

Networking for our future

Together we are making the railway's network infrastructure fit for the future. We are supporting the railway's platform strategy with automated provisioning.  We are networking depots and other facilities with 5G for minimal latency across numerous smart devices. Our edge computing solutions allow data to be processed directly at the source, depot or site. This reduces latencies and network traffic through decentralised data processing.
