It is a single interface to: ERTMS MoU Steering Committee International Railway Association UIC ERTMS Users Group ETCS Industry UNISIG European Railway Agency ERA It gives a single voice to the GSM-R Industry for: The global promotion of the technology The continued development of the EIRENE standards Interoperable systems with seamless integration The long-term support of the GSM-R technology The GSM-R Industry Group has currently nine members, dedicated to: The active global promotion of the GSM-R technology. The supply of interoperable End-to-End systems. The minimization of integration efforts and railway migration costs. The continued development of the EIRENE standards in line with railway requirements. Supporting UIC, ERA and the ERTMS users group. The smooth evolution and migration to a Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) Industry Group together with the associated organisations UIC (International Railways Association) and ERA (European Railway Agency) are committed to long-term support of GSM-R. Why GSM-R? With over 35 different European railway communication systems in use, the European railways decided to work together to achieve interoperability by using a single communication platform. They identified their shared requirements and various technologies were evaluated. GSM was chosen as the best technology because: widely proven highly interoperable a hugely successful global standard. Railway operators, institutes and industries have established common activities to specify, to test and to approve the systems needed. The GSM-R standard and its continued development are managed by the European Railways under leadership of UIC (International Railway Association) and ERA (European Railway Agency) and it benefits from the support of the European Commission and railway bodies. GSM-R is the wireless communication standard for railway networks. It has been developed under European Union sponsorship to assist railways in achieving their goals of network interoperability, reduced operational costs, improved safety at higher speeds and delivery of new services for the benefit of the railway operating companies and their passengers. GSM-R is built on GSM technology and benefits from the economies of scale of its GSM technology heritage. It is a cost-efficient digital replacement for existing incompatible in-track cable and analogue railway radio networks. The standard is the result of over ten years of collaboration between the various European railway companies, with the goal of achieving interoperability using a single communication platform. GSM-R, standardised in EIRENE, is part of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) standard and carries the signalling information directly to the train driver, enabling higher train speeds and traffic density with a high level of safety. GSM-R Success: Proven interoperability and border crossing (European Corridor) Its stability and popularity have led to its acceptance outside Europe.
