Viennese railway excellence: Kapsch CarrierCom and 3Binfra form partnership.

Kapsch has been appointed as distributor and integrator of 3Binfra’s solution INFRALIFE®. INFRALIFE® is an asset management system with railway best practice, providing functions including master data management, condition monitoring and maintenance.

Vienna, March 28, 2019 – Kapsch CarrierCom strengthens its portfolio for railway providers by securing a strong partnership with Austrian asset management system specialist 3Binfra. INFRALIFE® is an infrastructure and railway-dedicated software solution that integrates service and diagnostic systems, allocates measurement data and visualizes individual failures along the route. The solution is already implemented for Luxembourg Railways. Kapsch acts as preferred distributor and integrator.

“The collaboration is an important step for us to broaden our portfolio, offer additional products and service unified in achieving the same single goal; to help the railways save money and increase operational efficiency,” explains Kari Kapsch, CEO of Kapsch CarrierCom.

"The long-term strategic partnership with Kapsch CarrierCom, as a globally successful provider in the railway telecommunications market, allows us to effectively position INFRALIFE® in the international market. In addition, Kapsch will develop extensive product expertise for joint implementation projects, providing the (infrastructure) customer with IT, railway and asset management know-how from a single source," says Stefan Pertl, CEO 3Binfra.

Asset management is seen as an essential framework for the implementation of any form of predictive maintenance or AI (Artificial Intelligence) supported analysis. Having an asset management system is particularly important for railway operators looking for a better overview of all their assets, including switches, electrical towers, signals, border crossing, ticket machines, etc.

INFRALIFE® by 3Binfra is dedicated to the needs of railway operators. The software dynamically visualizes assets and tracks geometry and conditions along the route. Moreover, the system is highly configurable and can link any asset information, including defects and documents, to assets. Connected sensors are able to analyse machine data for condition monitoring, enabling maintenance processing.
