Deutsche Bahn AG places reliance upon Pan Dacom Direkt GmbH after international tender

The SPEED-OTS-5000 System offers the best price/ perfomrance ratio
For the future the Deutsche Bahn DB relies on the digitalazation of their communications infrastructure. The necessary communication links and the associated broadband demand with data rates up to 1 Gbps are achieved via fiber infrastructures.

The Challenge:
Mutual connection of multiple stations to a central station

The target:
Broadband connection of local station ICT-infrastructure to the consolidated network

The details:

  • International tender for a "WDM-Acess Metro Network"
  • Operating data rate of 1GbE
  • Flexible implementation of ranges above 20 km up to 150 km
  • Nationwide customized trainings
  • 24/7-hotline and SLA

The Solution:
Based on the existing fiber links parallel to the railroad track, the Deutsche Bahn AG decided for a xWDM add-drop solution with fiber-saving connection via a bus topology.

The advantages:

  • Best system concept and simple network management
  • Individual adaptions and implementations for NMS-integration
  • Outstanding price/ performance ratio
  • Flexible channel number & central monitioring of all locations
  • Direct access to the manufacturer
  • European resp. German Support

Across the country with the lowest budget price of all time.
In order to optimize the use of the existing fiber links parallel to the railway network Deutsche Bahn AG constitutes in an WDM-system. By using add-drop multiplexers a price-optimized connection of up to 15 stations to a central station is possible. In parallel and in addition to the actual playload and control information, a dedicated management channel for monitoring and configuration of the transmission equipment is provided at each site. Furthermore the Pan Dacom Direkt GmbH realized the perfomance-optimized planning with turnkey preconfiguration as well as the placement of the systems and nationwide training of the staff of Deutsche Bahn AG and DB Systel GmbH, the internal ICT service provider.

24x7-ticket - service for an "all-round-carefree-package"
As part of the all-round-carefree-package the Deutsche Bahn AG uses simultaneously the written ticket suport and of the course the around-the-clock available support with 24x7-SLA. The direct acess to the German manufacturer allowed the customized adaption and the iplementation of additional functionalities. This allowed successfully integration of the SPEED-OTS-5000 transmission system into the Group's own network and management system.

System & Support - Made in Germany!
Pan Dacom Direkt supported during the installation and commissioning of the two pilot routes through Dresden Elbe-Valley and the new link through the Thuringian Forest. Subsequently, the installations have been carried out on their own and manwhile over 100 systems have been delivered and commissioned with the operational support of DB Systel GmbH.
