All about FRMCS

FRMCS (Future Railway Mobile Communication System) is the future worldwide telecommunication system designed by UIC, in close cooperation with the different stakeholders from the rail sector, as the successor of GSM-R but also as a key enabler for rail transport digitalisation.

This conference will be a unique opportunity to know about the current status of FRMCS specification and standardisation, to understand the global timeline of its introduction and to consider the operational impacts of the foreseen migration scenarios. It will also provide a global vision of the various rail evolutions that will benefit from this new system as a common support to train modernisation.

A global attendance

Over 200 participants from several countries and from many diverse areas such as telecom and signaling domains, regulation authorities and standardisation bodies, railway infrastructure managers and railway undertakings but also industry leaders and manufacturers are expected to attend this international conference whose aim is to facilitate an open, relevant and comprehensive exchange of information between the numerous actors of the rail sector.
