LILEE Systems and Alstom Debut New Communication System for Positive Train Control

Indianapolis, IN – September 30, 2013 – Today, at the opening of the 53rd Annual RSSI Communications and Signaling Exhibition, LILEE Systems and Alstom announced that their new, jointly developed communications management technology will become the backbone of Alstom’s positive train control (PTC) system. Once in place, the CMU-2000 family of communications manager units (CMUs) will enhance the safety and performance of passenger rail service by enabling fast, reliable transmission of PTC data signals and commands. The CMUs consist of a Mobile Communications Manager (MCM) installed onboard locomotives, Base Radio Communications Manager (BRCM) and Base Communications Manager (BCM) equipment located along the wayside, and an Office Communications Manager (OCM) at network control centers or remote offices. Together, these units relay information from PTC- equipped trains back to central operations centers and allow system operators to enforce speed limits and signals across the rail network in the northeastern U.S. The CMU-2000 family is fully compliant with Advanced Civil Speed Enforcement System (ACSES) communications protocols, including ATCS specifications 200 and 250. “These new communication manager units were specifically designed to operate seamlessly with Alstom’s ACSES PTC system, which is currently operating along the Northeast Corridor,” according to Steve Zwart, Director of Alstom’s PTC operations. “Their underlying technology is based on more than a decade of successful PTC implementation and can meet the needs of any operator.” “Meeting the need for reliable communications along the Northeast Corridor PTC network carries forward the momentum of our partnership with Alstom while demonstrating our commitment to deliver advanced technology tailored to address customers’ PTC challenges,” added Jia-Ru Li, CEO of LILEE Systems. “Together with Alstom,...

LILEE Systems Announces the Availability of the Industry’s First Commercially Available Wayside Status Relay Service (WSRS)

APTA 2013 RAIL CONFERENCE, PHILADELPHIA, PA, June 4, 2013 – LILEE Systems, a member of the American Passenger Transportation Association (APTA) and the leading provider of advanced communication systems designed exclusively for the rail and rail transit industry, today announced the availability of the first commercially available interoperable, ITC- compliant Wayside Status Relay Service. WSRS is the latest addition to LILEE Systems’ portfolio of messaging system products and services designed to provide rail transit agencies with interoperable solutions that enable them to meet the Rail Safety Improvement Act (RSIA) mandated deadline of December 31, 2015 for Positive Train Control (PTC). Rail transit agencies face significant financial, schedule, and programmatic challenges to address the letter and spirit of the RSIA mandate. Existing proprietary communication systems often have high entry and on-going support licensing costs, negatively impacting an agency’s finances. LILEE Systems reduces the cost and complexity of installation and maintenance with its industry-leading interoperable PTC platform comprised of the WSRS, IEEE 802.15.4p draft- standard-compliant 220 MHz base and locomotive radios, Wayside Messaging Servers (WMS), and back office mobile IP controllers. The WSRS enhances system performance by providing relay, switchover, and status subscription features to the rail communications network, and establishing seamless interoperability with neighboring foreign roads which may also implement the interoperable messaging system. The WSRS accepts Edge Messaging Protocol (EMP) messages from Wayside Interface Units (WIUs) in the field and forwards those messages to interested and authorized parties, based on configured parameters in the WSRS. The WSRS also manages subscriptions to WIUs for other applications, and can be configured to extend the network’s coverage via 220 MHz, cellular, Wi-Fi...
