Heathrow Express rolling stock network upgrade Amplicon

For this project there were several companies involved, each performing a different role:

Heathrow Express is a train operator who provides the fastest way to connect to London from Heathrow.

Railcare performs a full-scale train maintenance, repair and refurbishment service offering considerable expertise in vehicle component overhaul.

Interfleet Technology is a rail consultancy to the international railway transportation industry.

Siemens, as the train maintenance provider, managed this particular project.

Amplicon

The Requirement & solution Amplicon

Railcare were contracted by Siemens to carry out a refurbishment and modernisation upgrade programme on a fleet of class 332 rail vehicles that were operated by Heathrow Express.

Heathrow Express aims to offer their passengers a fast and comfortable way of travelling between Heathrow Airport and the centre of London. In line with their premium brand, they look to offer a high quality of service to their passengers.

Heathrow Express rolling stock network upgrade  

As part of this refurbishment, a new train Ethernet backbone was required to handle communications between passenger information systems (PIS), flight information display systems (FIDS) and passenger Wi-Fi access.

Working in conjunction with Railcare and Interfleet Technology, who were responsible for the on-train installation design and systems integration, it was decided that a managed EN50155 approved network switch with a gigabit fibre backbone was appropriate for the application.

The results Amplicon

Within a short period of time Amplicon in conjunction with Moxa were able to provide a custom TN-5510 Ethernet switch with gigabit fibre uplinks meeting the customer requirements and tight delivery schedule.

“Amplicon provided valuable support during the system specification and design stages, providing quick and helpful answers to our queries, and facilitating communications with the equipment OEM when required' - Michael King Engineer at Interfleet Technology Ltd.
