The primary business of national rail operators like Sweden’s Banverket is transportation, not telecommunications. But with exclusive responsibility for its country’s 58,082 rail systems—including conventional rail, underground and light rail systems carrying both freight and passengers—Banverket knows how critical effective and reliable communications are to safe and secure travel. In 2007, Banverket chose Alcatel-Lucent to transfer its systems to a highly available, highly secure converged IP network over an MLPS platform.
