Siemens to present the future of rail at Berlin expo

MUNICH, 6 days ago

Siemens Mobility is presenting its new digital business platform Siemens Xcelerator at InnoTrans 2022, an international trade fair for transport technology running from September 2023 in Berlin, Germany.

Siemens Xcelerator is an open digital business platform with the ambition to create a powerful ecosystem of partners who can jointly accelerate digital transformation and sustainability in mobility at scale. By opening interfaces for all participants of the mobility ecosystem, Siemens Xcelerator helps connect the real with the digital worlds – a first-of-its-kind innovation in the rail industry.

“With Siemens Xcelerator, we create open interfaces to enable continuous data exchanges between the different sub-systems of the railway network. Our digital technologies, services and innovations allow for up to 100% system availability, greater punctuality and better utilization of trains, which benefits both operators and passengers and creates a new level of comfort and efficiency”, said Michael Peter, CEO of Siemens Mobility.

Siemens Xcelerator comprises a comprehensive, curated portfolio including digital and IoT-enabled offerings (software, services and connected hardware) for industries, buildings, grids and transportation; a continuously growing, powerful ecosystem; and a marketplace to explore and educate, alongside a community of customers, partners, and experts. Siemens Xcelerator also holds the architectural promise to bring modular software into the cloud. Siemens Mobility will open and connect parts of the existing portfolio, namely from the Mobility Software Suite X and the Railigent X application suite.

This includes train planning, reservation and ticketing, inventory management, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), digital services and infrastructure. By opening interfaces horizontally and vertically, both operators and passengers will profit from an interoperable and connected ecosystem.

Different participants of the mobility ecosystem such as trains, infrastructure, operators, passengers and external partners will be virtually connected via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to work together seamlessly, cloud based, open and easy to integrate. – TradeArabia News Service
