NI Railways’ latest project involving the Actelis hybrid fiber-copper solution requires carrying data from the agency’s main signaling center out to their support offices. Actelis’ solution was chosen for its high speed, media flexibility and reliability. Actelis’ products are implemented both trackside and in equipment rooms, to enable applications such as:
- Vital customer information services to train stations and remote stops across the agency’s network.

Actelis is serving NI Railways together with its partner, The Kenton Group. The Kenton Group provides design, delivery, and support of network access needs internationally and throughout the United Kingdom.
