Enhancing Your Onboard Networks with HUBER+SUHNER Antennas

In the fast-paced world of rail, connectivity is king. But with 3G networks facing their inevitable sunset, operators now must prepare for a seamless transition to next-generation technologies. Enter HUBER+SUHNER, and our expertise in delivering uninterrupted connectivity for passengers on-board.

Meeting your operational needs

Antennas play a critical role in keeping trains connected. However, in an overcrowded market where ‘future-ready’ solutions are commonplace, it can be hard to choose the right one for your operations. That’s why HUBER+SUHNER offers a comprehensive range of antenna solutions, with rugged designs and enhancements to meet the unique challenges of on-board environments.
Featuring 24 different types of antennas to suit your specific operational requirements, our SENCITY® Rail portfolio delivers unparalleled performance, even in the harshest of conditions. Whether navigating through urban jungles, or traversing remote landscapes, reliable coverage can be achieved, ensuring sustained connectivity throughout the journey.

Using the latest innovations

But it’s not just about reliability; it’s about innovation. With 3G on its way out, HUBER+SUHNER uses the latest technologies, including multi-band capabilities and MIMO, to optimise signal strength and maximise throughput. This ensures faster speeds, better coverage, and enhanced passenger experiences.

These antennas are designed with versatility in mind, making them compatible with a wide range of networks, including 4G, 5G, and beyond. This is crucial in an era where legacy mobile networks are coming to an end. When operators choose to upgrade their existing infrastructure, or build a new network from the ground up, HUBER+SUHNER has them covered, with solutions that align with the latest mobile technologies and advancements.

Demonstrable results

Don’t just take our word for it; our track record speaks for itself. Our 5G-enabling SENCITY® Rail ACTIVE rooftop antenna, developed alongside McLaren Applied, has won industry awards for the enhanced connectivity it offers commuters. Countless train operators trust HUBER+SUHNER to keep their passengers connected. From high-speed trains to commuter networks, our antennas form the backbone of reliable on-board connectivity.

Operators cannot afford to wait for the 3G sunset. Major companies like Vodafone and EE have already switched off their networks in the UK this year, so to avoid operation issues, it’s time they future-proof their onboard networks. HUBER+SUHNER, with our experience and innovations within the rail market, can help these businesses make a seamless transition to the next generation of connectivity, with a portfolio of assets to underpin reliable rail networks.
