Wireless Mesh Network adopted in modernization of Tianjin Railroad Logistics System

Recently, Tianjin Railroad has successfully established a high quality digitalization platform through wireless network deployment. Each patrol is equipped with customized handheld terminals, which wirelessly sends digital and voice data via communication base-stations to Hazardous Materials Identification System (HMIS) and rail-station maintenance system for electronic storage and printing. This ensures the precision, timeliness and security of the data.

“The terminals are important equipments for ensuring safe operation of railroad. Its applications demand for increases in network communication support. Also, as the environment of railroad system is complex, large communication equipments are inappropriate due to high engineering cost, maintenance difficulties and inflexibility. Consequently, simple wireless network is one of the effective solutions. However, topographical issues such as mountains and tunnels will place hash requirements on signal coverage.” Tianjin railroad patrol system representative stated.
