OSIsoft Teams Up with LILEE Systems to Bolster Rail Safety Through Increased Access to Real-Time Operational Data

LILEE Systems and OSIsoft IoT to link LILEE IoT gateways to OSIsoft’s PI System for greater visibility across rail networks. The combination of LILEE Systems and the PI System will help improve PTC performance and help rail operations enact strategies for accident prevention, predictive maintenance and supply chain optimization. The companies will also bring joint technology advantages to other transportation and supply chain markets. Washington, D.C. (April 11, 2017)—OSIsoft, a leader in operational intelligence, and LILEE Systems, a provider of mobile communications solutions for the transportation industry, have entered into an alliance to improve safety and equipment health of rail and transportation networks through Big Data and industrial Internet of Things technologies. OSIsoft and LILEE Systems are working together to embed a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) connector for transferring data from LILEE’s IoT gateways to OSIsoft’s PI System to help rail operators achieve their goals for Positive Train Control (PTC). The COTS connector, for example, will transfer data regarding speed, acceleration, vibration or other parameters captured by LILEE gateways and software located on trains or trackside stations to PI Systems located in centralized control centers where technicians can use the information to prevent potential equipment failure or identify safety risks or forward insights back to train operators or others. The connector will also monitor the health and operation of PTC technologies themselves. Transportation companies will also be able to use LILEE and OSIsoft technology to perform long-term analysis to optimize routes, improve on-time arrivals, define maintenance schedules, reduce or improve regulatory and environmental compliance. LILEE and OSIsoft will also collaborate on bringing real-time awareness to long-haul trucking, shipping and other...

LILEE Systems’ Paola Realpozo Highlights the Value of Big Data and IoT Technologies for Railways at SafeRail 2017

WHO: Paola Realpozo, Director of Rail Strategy, LILEE Systems WHAT: In her session, “PTC Big Data: Implementing an IoT Data Management Platform,” Paola Realpozo, director of rail strategy at LILEE Systems, will address how big data and IoT technologies are helping rail operators manage assets more efficiently while ensuring safety. Big data is a reality for railroads. Onboard assets and wayside equipment are part of the internet of things, interconnected, and constantly generating enormous amounts of data. It is paramount to look at the IoT value chain to maximize the benefits of the collected data to provide better operations and passenger experience. New communications technologies will play a key role to enable railroads to establish challenging yet critical train-to-ground communications to achieve this goal.

LILEE partners with Fluidmesh Networks to demonstrate and grow their open platform capabilities for Connected Rail

LILEE partners with Fluidmesh Networks to demonstrate and grow their open platform capabilities for Connected Rail

With a reduced handover time by a factor of 50, LILEE Systems and Fluidmesh achieve seamless switching between trackside radio and LTE making it transparent for end-user applications that are sensitive to network latency. San Jose, CA – March 31, 2017 – LILEE Systems, an Inc. 500 company and provider of advanced wireless communication solutions in industrial IoT and an emerging innovator in cloud-based network solutions, announced today their collaboration with Fluidmesh Networks, manufacturer of fast-roaming wireless networking products, to provide superior and reliable train to ground communications to railways around the world. Fluidmesh Networks developed an innovative wireless train-to-ground solution based on an MPLS protocol. The system provides up to 500 Mbps of usable throughput on-board trains traveling at a speed of up to 220 mph and supports both vital and non-vital applications. Thanks to some specialized antenna and radio technology, Fluidmesh solutions works both above ground and underground and support a trackside spacing up to 8Km, the highest in the industry. As the interest and demand for more onboard applications is growing, so is the need for high bandwidth data requirements. There is a significant focus on augmenting the number of applications and services onboard the trains to provide increased safety, information, and connectivity to passengers, as well as real-time monitoring systems. These new requirements increase the importance of having a reliable, robust infrastructure for train to ground communications, as more and more services add pressure to the bandwidth needed to support them, increasing the cost of LTE significantly. Railways around the world, traditionally relying on LTE-based communications to support their rail operations, are increasingly deploying alternative...
