Norwegian railways deploys advanced nationwide communications network to enhance safety and efficiency

Jernbaneverket is Norway’s national railway administration, responsible for maintaining and operating rail infrastructure for the Ministry of Transport and Communication. Its system runs from Oslo in the south to the Arctic Circle, encompassing 4,230 km of track, 357 stations, over 700 tunnels and four data centers for transporting 61 million passengers and 30
million tons of cargo annually. Jernbaneverket relies heavily on its mission-critical communications network to safely manage traffic and timetables, operate railway stations and terminals, conduct studies and planning, and support business operations. In recent years, the agency faced increasing traffic and the need to deploy new-generation services that met international ERTMS and GSM-R standards. It also wanted to boost operational efficiency and reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Working with Nokia, Jernbaneverket is deploying a future-ready, GSM-R ground-to-Train infrastructure, and an ultra-broadband IP/MPLS-based optical and microwave network, transforming its communications infrastructure to enable more reliable, efficient and secure services throughout its national system.
