Moxa, a provider of IP-based communication solutions, will be showcasing its offerings at InnoTrans 2024, under the theme “Forging Mobility Ahead.” 

The company will exhibit the world’s first router certified to IEC 62443-4-2 Security Level 2 (SL2), alongside switches, IP cameras, and embedded railway computers with integrated cybersecurity for various rail transportation applications. InnoTrans will occur from 24 to 27 September 2024 in Berlin.

With the increasing automation and shift towards autonomous trains, cybersecurity has become crucial. Moxa addresses this with its IEC-62443-4-2-SL2-certified secure routers from the TN-4900 series, designed for train control management systems (TCMS) and Ethernet train backbone network management (ETBN).

These devices offer top-tier network security and enable quicker upgrade cycles for regular security updates and new functionalities. Moxa’s latest TN-4500B series of Ethernet switches, featuring high-density ports ranging from 8 to 28 and up to 16 Gigabit ports, provide seven times the computing power of the previous generation and comply with the IEC 62443-4-2 industrial cybersecurity standard. Moxa guarantees 15 years of availability with form-fit-function continuity for future product generations for both series.

Moxa's comprehensive modular Wi-Fi 6 solution addresses the stringent requirements of train-to-ground (T2G) roaming applications. It ensures reliable CBTC (communication-based train control) and high-resolution CCTV (closed-circuit television) networks, essential for safety and efficiency in rail transport.

Moxa’s new generation of embedded railway computers features embedded virtualisation to enhance availability while reducing space, weight, and costs. These computers are secured with a hardware-based secure-boot design and utilise the open-source routing software “OpenWRT” as secure gateways for T2G functionalities. With 5G and Wi-Fi 6 support, no additional Wi-Fi infrastructure is required along the route. The embedded railway computers perform reliably under full load within a temperature range of -40 to +70 °C.

All Moxa devices for the rail sector are distinguished by their long-term availability and adherence to the highest standards of safety, availability, and reliability in line with IEC 61375, IEC 62443, EN 50155, and EN 50121-4.
