Improve operation and maintenance

Use your customer specific connection to send data to Siemens MindSphere – with our solutions for connectivity. 

Use customer specific connection 


The collection and transmission of data is always the first step for a digital solution. In traction power supply systems a lot of data is already generated on field device level, e.g. in the protection devices. Depending on the respective application and the foreseen use cases there are various connectivity options which can be used. However, certain standards are used to establish cyber secure connections and allow cost efficient connectivity.

Seamless security guaranteed

IT security with the digital railway

Railways are and stay the safest means of transportation. Through digitalization, they can increase this lead and break new ground to fully leverage the competitive advantages of rail transportation.

But digitalization increasingly come with the need of IT security. Solutions that protect systems against physical interventions and IT manipulations. Siemens Mobility Services offers you a comprehensive concept for IT security – from risk analysis to continuous monitoring and IT security training.

Your advantage: Our IT security concept can be used in a modular manner. First of all, you can professionally assess your status and detect „open doors“ before undesired cyber visitors do. If desired, we harden your system, eliminate weaknesses and incorporate security technologies. Events which are relevant for IT security are detected during ongoing operations and indicated by special software solutions. Of course, we offer training on topics such as personnel, processes and technologies. The Siemens Rail Academy is an experienced partner to assist you.
