The railway PSU’s subsidiary RailTel Enterprise Limited (REL) has signed an MOU with TVM Signaling & Transportation Systems India Pvt.

RailTel has said that it is the first step to achieve high level of safety, efficiency and profitability of railways by improving line capacity, headway and throughput with minimal investments. It can be achieved with modernisation of signaling with optimal utilisation of created physical assets. 
Signal design is a major area of concern for rail operations from the point of view of time taken, errors, re-work, modifications and subsequent delays, complete simulation testing with documentation and traceability. Design automation software tools have now become an integral part of the RailTel’s Design Centre to control tables to preparation of application logic with modules for verification and validation and for simulation testing and certification.
 
This hosted design automation tool will be used by railways/PSUs/system integrators. 
 
Data Centre & OFC network of RailTel will make the solution universally accessible to authenticated users and help reduce delays in the process while reducing cost and time over runs.
