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 the Class 1 railroads and large rail integrators Future Technologies has deployed a broad range of wireless technologies including cellular, WiFi, unlicensed point to multipoint, mesh and  licensed microwave.  These solutions allow connectivity to enable Positive Train Control, 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.
