IT developments and the increased use of digital technology have transformed the way railways work today. Railway operators must commit to innovation and manage their cost frame in order to stay competitive and meet the expectations of their customers. The number and variety of different automated services (like applications for energy management, passenger information systems, door control, ticketing, video surveillance, entertainment, and on-board Internet, etc.) in modern rail travel has proliferated into a cost and management nightmare. Using virtualization technology and standard components to bring these applications together into a unified environment can greatly increase efficiency and reliability, while reducing costs.
