The European Rail Challenge
The railway industry is currently in the midst of an exciting evolution. Europe’s appetite for rail is growing, however there is increasing pressure to meet customer expectations of safety, connectivity, comfort and convenience. Within the competitive transport landscape, rail must find a way to embrace and integrate technology innovation to improve and integrate services, meet growing customer demand on performance and comfort and meet technological standards and requirements in order to remain competitive.
SmartRail responds to our changing industry by providing a meeting place that showcases technology solutions and creative insights to drive towards the competitive rail networks of the future.
Next generation of in-train entertainment, infotainment and connectivity solutions
More than 100 employees in Europe (Germany, Estonia, France) and North America (USA) have a proven track record of delivering successful solutions for IT, retail, telco, railway, aerospace and media customers.
Axinom teams offer consulting, architecture, software development, and operating services empowering customers to triumph in the growing multi-platform IT environment by quickly launching new services and offering on-demand and live content to any device.
The Axinom products allow service providers to create, manage and maintain the next generation of in-train entertainment, infotainment, e-commerce, and connectivity services in a simplified, cost effective, and secure way.
The portfolio supports the process of management and deployment of content and services to unlimited number of clients. The products are built to run both on premise and in the cloud data centres allowing global scale of service delivery.
All building blocks expose a comprehensive API which enables providers to build their own solutions on top of the products and to interact with 3rd party systems (ERP, recommendation engines, content provider and post production studios).
Using Axinom’s set of products service providers can significantly reduce the cost of service with optimized workflows for content management and delivery:
Axinom Content Management System (CMS) is based on Axinom’s innovative workflow engine which ensures secure and scalable handling of all types of content items (videos, audio, advertising, products, magazines, news, payment transactions, etc.) and services while supporting delivery to different client platforms (Web browsers and mobile applications for smartphones and tablets on all client OS platforms including Windows, iOS, and Android).
Axinom Content Delivery System (CDS) allows incremental, secure, and robust bidirectional content synchronisation using standardised communication protocols and mediums such as Cellular 3G / 4G, wireless Access, satellite, and physical storage devices like USB and SSD. Axinom CDS does not depend on permanent internet connection allowing disconnected synchronization scenarios.
Axinom Digital Rights Management (DRM) enables customers to target a wide range of client OS platforms with a single service by simultaneously supporting multiple DRM technologies. It is the first multi-DRM product that can operate in a disconnected fashion enabling premium video on board of the aircraft.
