UK railway news round-up

first_imgUntil January 25 the Office of Rail & Road is consulting on its proposed new regulatory policy for Network Rail, which would come into effect with the start of Control Period 6 in April. Intended to target issues that have the most serious impact on passengers, freight customers and funders, it is based on a three-stage approach: routine monitoring and assessment of Network Rail’s performance; investigation and early resolution of concerns, including new regulatory tools such as ORR hearings and requiring Network Rail to put in place formal improvement plans at an earlier stage; enforcement including financial sanctions on routes or the system operator designed to allow ORR to scale penalties so that they could be funded by management bonuses.The Rail Ombudsman service launched on November 26. If customers are unhappy about the way a rail company has dealt with a complaint, they can appeal to the service which is provided by Dispute Resolution Ombudsman on behalf of the Rail Delivery Group. This will review appeals with a view to resolving them by mediation or by issuing a formal, binding ruling if no agreement can be reached. The services covers all TOCs franchised by the Department for Transport or devolved authorities, as well as open access operators, but not those franchised by local transport authorities, such as TfL Rail.Following a competitive tender, Network Rail has awarded Sabre Rail Services a contract to overhaul the brakes on its fleet of 555 JNA Falcon open wagons.

SimCom Unveils Ultra-Small 5G Module for SA/NSA Sub-6 GHz Networks

first_imgSIMCom has introduced, the SIM8202G-M2, a Multi-Band 5G module that supports NSA/SA networking and covers most Sub-6 GHz (FR1) frequency bands across major network carriers around the world. The module uses a new 4-antenna design, which effectively increases communication capacity, sends and receives data in an active manner, and maintains high data speed and stability. It has a sub-6G downlink data rate of 2.4 Gbps and an uplink data rate of 500 Mbps. It adopts the standard M2 interface and its AT command set is compatible with SIM7912G / SIM8200X-M2 modules, which can minimize the investment cost and speed up the market launch for customers. Compared with other 5G modules, it is greatly improved in the following aspects.Key Features of SIM8202G-M2:New 4-Antenna Design – SIM8202G-M2 adopts a 4-antenna design, which effectively increases communication capacity by sending and receiving more data, and maintains high data speed and stability.Ultra-Small Size – The SIM8202G-M2 module measures only 30 x 42 mm. The process to reduce size was a challenging as the increase in internal components leads to a denser component layout, causing limited power line routing width, harder isolation and protection of the high-rate signal line, RF-sensitive line, clock signal, and harder controlled impedance routing. SIMCom had to repeatedly optimize the design to get it right. Components with smaller package dimensions, higher performance, and more reliable quality are adopted to effectively meet the multi-band/high-performance/high-bandwidth/multi-system requirements of 5G modules.Large Exposed Copper Area Facilitates Heat Dissipation – The data transmission rate of 5G modules is much higher 3G/4G technologies. This increases power consumption by the CPU, RF transceiver, and RF PAs. As a result they all generate more heat in the module. To ensure the module can work stably for a long time, the design of the SIM8202G-M2 has been optimized to make sure the main heating components have sufficient holes to base. At the same time, a large exposed copper area is designed on the back of the module to facilitate the heat dissipation of the module by silica gel.The SIM8202G-M2 module features high-speed transmission and low latency. It can be widely used in terminals for VR, AR, CPE, IoV, IIoT, and 4K/8K HD video.Click here for more information about this product.last_img read more

West Brom star hailed for ‘fantastic’ performances, returning to Hawthorns full…

first_imgPlaying as a lot midfielder in Roberto Martinez’s 3-4-2-1, Nacer Chadli managed to earn some brownie points with his two performances against Greece and Russia during this international break.While Belgium were unable to win either game, drawing both, the West Brom forward picked up an assist in the 3-3 tie against the latter of the two, finding Christian Benteke’s head with an indirect free-kick.Normally playing further forward with the Baggies, Chadli impressed in a more defensive role, and Roberto Martinez was very impressed with what he saw, as he explained to DH in Belgium after the game.He said: “I learnt a lot of useful things for the future. For example, I saw Nacer Chadli be fantastic during the two games, and I won’t forget it.”The West Brom player explained before both games that he would be hoping to get a chance to prove he could be play an important part in this Belgium squad, and it appears he has done just that.He told RTBF: “I feel I showed some good things. It was my first time on the left for me. Tactically, there’s still a few things to sort out. There’s still time to learn, but I was happy to start tonight.”Normally occupied by Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco, that left wing-back/midfielder role is one of the few up for grabs in a highly competitive international squad.Having caused a new headache for the former Everton manager, the West Brom player can now return to the Midlands full of confidence, and will undoubtedly be ready to try and hurt Manchester United’s top four chances on Saturday.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.
