  • Cybersecurity measures and Obsolescence Management of hardware platform are taken care of by Siemens
  • Especially suited for small-scale railway operators 




  • Our customers can focus on their core competences
  • Siemens ensures state of the art software and hardware including cybersecurity operation
  • Siemens ensures long-term conservation of system value




Iltis Web Services (IWS)

Keeping an eye on Iltis everywhere and at any time



  • For specific tasks, maintenance, management and analysis, personnel require access to station specific detail views or log data in order to comprehend the operational situation in the present or the past
  • This information can be acquired through an operator with access to workstations. But direct and secure access is beneficial to operation since it minimises time and associated cost efforts.




  • System information is made available from the cloud (such as live information on state of field elements)
  • Access to information with any mobile devices
  • Individual sign-on with customisable access rights





Efficient and location independent solution for various purposes

  • Management support: Overview of operational situation
  • Analysis support: Subsequent analysis of events/exceptional operational situations
  • Maintenance support: Tracing of disturbances




60 % of our customer base in Switzerland are using Iltis Web Services

Iltis Network Monitoring System (Iltis NMS)

Performance Monitoring of Iltis Networks



In railway operation it is critical to ensure enough network capacity to enable communication of components with minimal latency.

The increasing magnitude and complexity of IT infrastructures exacerbate transparency regarding network activity. Iltis NMS is the optimal solution for network performance monitoring





  • Network failures, bandwidth bottlenecks are identified and revealed
  • Response times are recorded and thresholds that are violated are revealed
  • Log information of network switches is recorded




  • Our customers can reduce costs by minimizing network failures through anticipation of disturbances
  • Siemens enables a transparent overview of network performance
