Strategy and concepts

Development and implementation of competitive technology strategies in the context of the digital transformation of rail to strengthen existing or new rail infrastructure.

Highest level of expertise in formulating technology strategies and feasibility studies. Ensuring that planning, activities and measures strictly contribute to defined objectives.

The entire rail sector is in a state of upheaval. The transformation from decades, if not centuries, of conventional technologies to digital high technology is revolutionary: digitisation promises to increase capacity on existing track infrastructure – while at the same time optimising investment and maintenance costs over the entire life cycle. A major challenge in view of the complexity of the railway system. A precisely thought-out technology strategy right from the start is an essential success factor for effective transformation processes.


With profound infrastructure and rolling stock know-how from national and international lighthouse projects, NEXTRAIL advises you on technology management in signalling. From the conception to the detailed implementation of customised strategies, processes and methods.
