(InnoTrans, Berlin, Tuesday 18 September 2018) Nomad Digital is delighted to announce the availability of its new R5001 flagship rail approved vehicle communications gateway, and computing centre product.

Built to cope with the growing demands of train to shore bandwidth from 4G/5G, trackside and satellite networks, it provides the ability to scale as train operators' need to and is built using long-term available components.

Within a single chassis it is possible to have up to 11x 4G/5G modems and can handle 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections for external radios and on-train local area connectivity. Capable of housing two high speed quad-core processors, expandable memory and disks its possible to run multiple demanding applications.

If that does not sound enough then scale it up by adding a second connected chassis and components to create a platform to run multiple virtualised applications running in either VM’s or containers using Nomad’s award winning technology, helping to reduce the hardware footprint on the train, lowering TCO and providing a platform for innovation.

Stephen Lathan, Head of Product Management, says:  "The R5001 is built on a proven chassis design meaning, the entire system can be customised to the specific needs of the solution and upgradeable as technology evolves, this is a safe investment in technology that is not going to be end of life before it's installed".
