Extension Modules
Compile your use case specific product
variant by enhancing the standard routers
with extension modules
Available Extension

■ CDMA450
■ RS-232
■ RS-485
■ Audio
■ GNSS with Dead Reckoning
■ Mass storage
The NetModule Router architecture is based on a modular concept that
allows a high degree of product customization. Providing a product
family specific number of PCI express mini card slots on the router
main board, the router may be extended with up to six extension
modules. All product variants are assembled and verified by NetModule
to ensure type approvals and the standard conformity.
To enhance the NetModule standard cellular modules with LTE, UMTS
and GSM, the options GSM-R, LTE450, LTE750 and CDMA450 are available.
These make it possible to connect the NetModule Routers with the
communication infrastructure of the railway operators and to enlarge the
transmission distance. In addition, we support LTE Cat 6 standards with
300mps DL or Enterprise LTE.
By use of the CAN and IBIS modules the routers can interact with the
digital operational control system in vehicles and trains.
The RS232 and RS485 modules enhance the functions of the
NetModule Routers with serial connection possibilities.
Emergency calls, radio communication and VoIP can be realized with the
audio module.
Precise localization of vehicles can be realized with the GNSS option.
This includes also Dead Reckoning, which enables to keep high
accuracy positioning by using information from various sensors (motion,
direction and height) to calculate the current position, even when GNSS only
positioning is temporary difficult or impossible.
The mass storage options enable the possibility to - regardless of the internet
connectivity – access information such as documents, images, audio and
video data, etc. and provide them as offline media.
Note: Not all extensions are available for every product!
