ARINC RailwayNetSM

Shared-network Positive Train Control (PTC) solutions for short line and commuter railroads

Railroads face the critical challenge of meeting FRA-mandated PTC requirements while also needing to keep their operations running smoothly and cost-effectively. To support this effort, Rockwell Collins has developed a fully-managed, shared-network solution that doesn’t require a prohibitive initial capital investment or internally maintaining IT infrastructure and personnel.

ARINC RailwayNetSM is built on our existing, proven, and highly reliable communications infrastructure for the aviation community. Supporting mission-critical data needs for nearly four decades, the same network and operations centers that deliver thirty five million aviation messages a day with a historical reliability of 99.999 percent will serve as the central nervous system of RailwayNet.
