Telecommunications engineering

Telecommunications engineering

Developing and maintaining critical networks

Our qualified engineers provide objective advice in areas as diverse as GSM-R, fixed transmission networks, lineside communications, data networks, CCTV and passenger information — whether on-train or at the station.

How we can help

Telecommunication systems are critical components of transport infrastructure and form a backbone supporting a multitude of other systems.

Telecommunications failures can affect many systems and processes, impacting on safety and business performance. We help to analyse and understand the composite systems' requirements to provide appropriate responses that take account of interfacing systems, other technical disciplines and the commercial realities associated with telecommunications systems.

At a strategic level we provide informed and impartial advice on issues such as asset stewardship, adoption of and migration to new systems and technologies, and safety or commercial risk management.

Within projects, we can provide a wide range of services, including:

  • Technical: Interface management, design and development, standards development and compliance review, asset management strategies and systems, feasibility studies, requirements capture and specification, reliability analysis, research and trouble-shooting investigations
  • Commercial: Business case development, development of tender documentation and evaluation processes, contract negotiations, variation management.
