SBB Telecom

As the system manager, SBB Telecom operates a GSM-R communications network for all railroad operations in Switzerland. SBB Telecom plans, builds and operates the network. The MRD (Mobile Rail Data) application, a custom development commissioned by SBB, is used for planning, documentation and monitoring. In addition to internal requirements, MRD is also used to exchange information within the Group (SBB Infrastructure, SBB Real Estate) and with external system partners (private railroads, Swisscom, Sunrise UPC, Salt, In Tunnel Com, Bakom, BAV, BAFU).
