The railway industry has been an essential part, used as a means of transportation for passengers or to carry freight, of every country in the world, some call it the economic backbone of every country. When we talk about digital transformation in the railway sector, we usually think of e-ticket machines, passenger information displays, and onboard connectivity aka passenger Wi-Fi, however technological advancements in the rail industry have increased system interconnections, signaling systems, train control systems, and telemetry.

Automotive Ethernet is a new physical layer standard, adapted and meets the needs of automotive use cases, including meeting electrical requirements (EMI/RFI emissions and susceptibility), bandwidth requirements, latency requirements, synchronization, and network management requirements. It enables high baud rate communications and offers high immunity, reduced cabling, and high-speed data rates, capable of automotive electromagnetic compatibility and immunity requirements in automotive conditions.

The increased proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to evolve and drive the promise of a connected world, from connected factories to connected office spaces to connected vehicles. Connecting vehicles continues to grow rapidly, and generates an enormous volume of data, and when this data is harnessed and analyzed, it presents a remarkable opportunity to make vehicles more efficient and roads safer, but one of the challenges is still limited to network capacity. A possible solution is multi-access edge computing (MEC), which can lower latency, offering massive bandwidth for processing and improves data transmission between vehicles and road infrastructure, reducing lag for critical decision making.

With a steadily growing world population, increasing agricultural production, while also dealing with labor shortages and demand for eco-friendly nutritious products is a challenge farmer and the agriculture industry is currently facing. Farm automation, or “smart farming,” uses a variety of fine-tuned calibrations and tech innovations in traditional farming that makes farms more efficient, optimizes crop or livestock production process and improves product quality.

In a nutshell, 5G AIoT is the concept that combines three hot technologies, 5G, AI, and IoT, into one. A 5G AIoT device is simply an IoT device capable of performing AI at the network edge. It also supports 5G mobile wireless so that it can send massive amounts of data and act in real-time.

Smart trains with modern core technology and integrated Internet of Things (IoT) technology will greatly benefit from rich data and insights on controlling diagnostic, communication, and monitoring functions to adapt to increasing demand, legacy infrastructure capacity limitations, and growing passenger experience expectations.

Software for Open Networking in the Cloud (SONiC) is an open-source network operating system (NOS) based on Linux that runs on a collection of software networking components, such as switches from multiple vendors and ASICs, to build a full suite of network functionality. Large cloud-service providers, and hyperscalers need to build their own network from the ground up with high scalability and management, and SONiC provides the flexibility to create the network solutions they need while also leveraging the collective strength of a large ecosystem and community.
