PrismaRail keeps your railroad up and running, monitoring trains and rail infrastructure.

How it works

Railroad Response-ability at Scale

PrismaRail enables railroad operators to monitor trains and rail structure accurately for hundreds of kilometers in real-time without installing any additional sensors. Train locations, rail faults, and events without the nuisance of false alarms.

Railroads are an essential transportation backbone. Railroad operators need to deal with rail faults and intrusion events while tracking train locations accurately in real-time. Keeping your railroad running smoothly is hard. We know it, and we’re here to help.

PrismaRail monitors the railroad without the need to install extra sensors on the tracks. Instead, it’s an easy deployment, utilizing the existing optical fiber laid along the tracks. PrismaRail tracks the locations of trains and events on the tracks, like rockslides, intrusions, and train faults.

With a short ramp-up time and effort, PrismaRail is effective on the installation day. Reflecting a significant cost reduction in railroad monitoring, it is a solution that is always there, 24×7, anywhere, anytime, and in any weather.

It is your response-ability at a railroad scale.

  • Flat wheel detection
  • Journey time between locations
  • Average speed
  • Vandalism

Solution Architecture

Railroad operators have deployed fiber optic cables along their tracks for many years. PrismaRail turns the existing optical fiber into a set of highly sensitive distributed sensors extending for hundreds and thousands of kilometers. The solution connects to one single dark fiber at a substation, sensing the entire rail. PrismaRail’s machine learning algorithms take the detailed data collected on the railroad tracks to detect and classify events, pinpointing them to exact locations in real-time. As a result, alerts have unprecedented accuracy – removing the nuisance of false alarms.​

All the information and alerts are concentrated into one command and control center. This way, PrismaRail can continue scaling with the railroad system. Moreover, with the revolutionary Pay-as-You-Grow service model – PrismaRail is your way to take off some of the burdens of responsibility.
