TASSTA attended at the 3rd FRMCS Plugtests in Paris, France, 3-7 July 2023

The Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) represents a significant milestone in digital railway communication, intending to succeed the existing Global System for Mobile Communications – Railway (GSM-R). This new system will amplify the rail industry’s digital capabilities, setting the groundwork for a more connected and efficient future.

Plugtests are a vital part of this evolution. These interoperability testing events meticulously verify the compatibility of different devices and services. The proceedings typically see a gathering of various vendors, each contributing their unique hardware or software for rigorous testing in a well-regulated environment, thereby ensuring an overall harmony of integrated systems.

One such influential participant was TASSTA GmbH, a major player in the 3rd FRMCS Plugtests event. Key highlights included presenting interoperability test results, unveiling new developments, and outlining future plans for improving synergies among FRMCS-related communication software and equipment. This engagement signifies a stride towards shaping a more unified and efficient railway communication system.
