Red Hat JBoss messaging technologies are built on an open, wire-level messaging protocol designed for maximum interoperability and complex networked systems with mobile endpoints. They enable servers to communicate and send messages to each other via the protocol, mapping easily into application-level APIs. Red Hat’s technical expertise and implementation of an open, wire-level messaging protocol are proven assets during the design and configuration of a back office.“This project is highly complex. It introduces a reliability concept of 5 9s into the rail industry’s wireless communication infrastructure,” says Robert Turnbull, CEO, Meteorcomm. “This means that the system downtime cannot exceed 5.26 minutes per year. It’s the combination of highly reliable hardware and software components, processes and people working together in near-perfect unison that will bring about this level of reliability. Our mission is to support the new PTC communications ecosystem and to assist the railroads with adopting this new technology.” “In a highly-distributed mobile environment like this, interoperable communications are what transform a collection of servers, relays and devices into an intelligent system,” said Craig Muzilla, vice president, Middleware, Red Hat. “As a Red Hat Embedded partner, Meteorcomm was able to seamlessly implement their ITC Messaging System while offering superior support services to their customers, serving as a true indication of where the market is headed.” “The railroads are pushing hard to implement these complex technologies, and we’re working to get them there,” said Turnbull. “They’re implementing a new technological communications system across tens of thousands of field locations and locomotive equipment. Once deployments are complete, they’ll have the interoperable communications infrastructure they need to meet the safety requirements, and a system that they can operate with confidence.” Additional Resources
