Kapsch acquires railway business from NEC

Kapsch CarrierCom is committed to being a global, end-to-end provider of railway communication solutions. Kapsch has now added terminal devices to its own portfolio by acquiring elements of the global technology provider NEC. Along with the railway business of NEC Portugal, Kapsch has taken over a number of contracts with railway operators in Portugal, Spain, Saudi Arabia and Finland. Kapsch has also taken on all NEC employees in Portugal, but production of the terminal devices will be moved to Austria.

Railway communication is the basis for smooth and safe train operations. Kapsch is outfitting over 70,000 railway kilometers with GSM-R technology for precisely this reason. The integration of the GSM-R division of Nortel in 2010 made Kapsch the world’s largest infrastructure provider and system integrator in this segment. Existing and prospective customers can now also obtain the terminal devices required for GSM-R operation directly from Kapsch. “Our railway customers demand the highest reliability and performance from their communication systems. We can now meet these expectations with our own terminal devices that are perfectly optimized for our infrastructure components,” says Kari Kapsch, CEO of Kapsch CarrierCom. The devices in question are cab radios that consist of two components installed in the locomotives: a radio component and an operating device with display, called a DMI (Desktop Management Interface). The devices produced by NEC feature integrated GPS (Global Positioning System), W-LAN support and the capacity for over the air (OTA) software updates.
