The advanced technologies of GE Transportation (NYSE: GE), a world’s leading provider of innovative rail products and services are being showcased at InnoTrans 2012 from September 18 to 21. Hosted every two years, InnoTrans is the world’s largest rail exhibition and attracts approximately 100,000 attendees and 2,500 exhibitors worldwide.
InnoTrans attendees will see how GE is helping to solve its customers’ toughest rail challenges with technology-leading solutions that help customers reduce operating costs, decrease fuel use, minimize downtime, increase safety and improve environmental performance.
PowerHaul Series Locomotive for Continental Europe
Delivering best-in-class haulage and fuel efficiency, the PowerHaul Series PH37ACai Locomotive has been adapted for cross-border operation in continental Europe and represents GE’s most technologically advanced, fuel-efficient and low-emissions diesel-electric locomotive to date. The groundbreaking PowerHaul Series PH37ACai Locomotive meets the latest TSI standards and demanding interoperability requirements for Europe and other regions that adopt such standards.
Tempo Train Control and Interlocking Solutions Portfolio
Developed to keep mass transit and mainline rail traffic moving smoothly, safely and efficiently, the Tempo range of ETCS (European Train Control System), CBTC (Communication Based Train Control) and computer based Interlocking solutions help rail operators streamline signaling project completion, decrease life-cycle cost and reduce energy consumption.
Designed around a common failsafe, scalable, hardware and software platform as well as an integrated suite of engineering tools, these solutions support operations ranging from high traffic density urban lines or high-speed lines to regional ones with lower traffic. The first Tempo ETCS Solution implementation will take place onboard a PowerHaul Locomotive for 2013 revenue service in countries of the European Union.
Global Locomotive Partnerships
GE Transportation continues to build regional and global partnerships to support its customer reach and growth. As a global provider to the rail industry, GE is meeting customers’ regional requirements by designing and manufacturing customized locomotives in the regions where they operate, while maintaining those regions’ manufacturing capabilities and strengthening their economies.
The PowerHaul Series Locomotive demonstrates a flexible platform that has been adapted to meet local needs worldwide. Since its debut in the United Kingdom in 2009, the PowerHaul Series Locomotive has expanded its global presence through continental Europe, Asia, and Australia. For example, Freightliner Group Ltd. added the PowerHaul Series Locomotive to its fleet and introduced GE’s advanced technology to the UK market. This Class 70 locomotive has provided significant haulage benefits that can be used on many routes compared to other diesel models in its fleet. GE has partnered with UGL Limited in Australia and KORAIL in Korea. The new partnership with TULOMSAS in Turkey for the Northern Africa and Middle East regions will be highlighted trackside at G4/10 where the PowerHaul PH37ACai Locomotive will be displayed.
Expanded Optimization Solutions Business
With GE’s recent acquisition of RMI, a leading provider of transportation management software analytics, GE’s Optimization Solutions business has expanded its portfolio to include a host of sophisticated solutions that optimize operations, assets, networks and energy use, reduce operational expenses, increase productivity, expand capacity and reduce emissions. Software solutions that are featured at InnoTrans include:
- RailConnectTM Transportation Management System - Helps manage railroad operations, eliminate manual processing, improve information flow, increase productivity, reduce costs and support a railroad’s daily operations.
- RailDOCSTM Wayside Asset Management System - Advanced signal and communication asset management solution that allows railroad maintenance departments to plan, manage and optimize daily operations.
- OASISTM Intermodal Terminal Operating System - Intermodal rail terminal operating system that delivers precise control of terminal events, inventory and work-flow management, sophisticated train scheduling and loading, and inbound and outbound gate processing.
GE Transportation University
Developed to strengthen the knowledge and competency of customers’ operators and technicians, GE Transportation University offers comprehensive online training, videos and classroom courses designed to provide access to the latest product information, reduce downtime and increase revenues. The courses are designed to help employees more efficiently recognize, diagnose, service and repair problems and better understand GE Transportation’s engines and components. The self-directed courses may be completed at the participant’s convenience and at their own pace, delivered through several mediums, including iPads, iPhones, tablets, androids, Blackberries and PCs.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
