Insight and know-how for the Rail industry

Expertise in Rail industry solutions

Impulse engineers and specialists have the industry insight and technology know-how to help UK rail industry integrators innovate with connectivity, communication and monitoring solutions.

Technology is playing an increasingly vital role in helping TOCs deliver the best possible customer experience while protecting tight margins and meeting regulatory demands. It also has a role to play in protecting staff and equipment.

With extensive experience in the sector, Impulse combines expertise with technology partnerships to offer class-leading devices to integrators who want reliable, repeatable and robust solutions.

Industrial devices for your application

As the average commuter carries at least two Wi-Fi enabled devices, operational technology is increasingly using Wi-Fi as a gateway to access engineering data on the railway. Whether you want to install passenger Wi-Fi or access condition monitoring data, we have a range of EN 50155 access points and bridges to enable your railway Wi-Fi project.
