Rail yards contain some of the most challenging networking environments in the world. In Intermodal yards the dynamic physical landscape with container stacks constantly changing create line of sight conditions that vary minute by minute. Trackside applications present their own set of challenges, transporting data from moving trains to the ground based network.

Working with Class 1 railroads and large rail integrators, Future Technologies has deployed a broad range of wireless technologies including Cellular, WiFi & Mesh Solutions, Unlicensed PtMP, and Licensed Microwave. These solutions allow connectivity to enable voice, video, data transfer and equipment and vehicular connectivity. Cradle to grave support including design, site surveys, installation and trouble ticket response are all part of the total Future Tech solution.
