MRD子午线®—Analysis of Rail Transit Network

Transmission Backbone Network System (usually in communication specialty), the task of it is to provide a unified network intervention platform for different types of services that users need. Usually, in addition to the signaling system, other systems such as Integrated Supervisory Control System, Automatic Fare Collection and Office Automation all can realize data communication between stations by Transmission System.

Therefore, underground backbone network system usually includes following subsystems:

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV)

Integrated Supervisory Control System (ISCS)

Automatic Fare Collection (AFC)

Public Address (PA)

Office Automation (OA)

MRD子午线®—Features and Trend of Rail Transit Transmission System

Transmission System

Dedicated transmission system: used by Metro Operation Company, transmit the data ran by all systems on the metro.

Civilian transmission system: used by many telecommunication operators (China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom), mainly transmit network voice packet data such as 2G, 3G to provide a transmission channel and ensure  the normal use of the public operator network in the underground.


1. The technology evolution of Rail Transit Communication System Backbone Network Scheme takes security and stability of the system, guarantee of the bandwidth and expandability as the most important factor;

2. The related technology program have gradually evolved from the early SDH optical transmission network, the MSTP multi-service transmission network to PTN packet transmission network and OTN network;

3. The increasing demand for business bandwidth of each subsystem in the communication system causes that the communication system must use 10Gbps transmission system;

4. 80% of the required bandwidth and above are Ethernet service which caused the unreasonable bandwidth use for transmission backbone network;

5. Based on the research on the type of communication bandwidth and the type of bandwidth in the communication system, MRD provide “voice and low-speed data network + broadband data network”;

6. Voice and low-speed data network use SDH/MSTP network with 2.5Gbps bandwidth;

7. Broadband data network use 10 Gigabit three-tier industrial Ethernet switches with 10Gbps bandwidth;

8. MSTP 2.5G+ 10G industrial Ethernet has better cost performance, greater manageability, and more scalability than 10Gbps SDH/MSTP/PTN;

Comparison of Industrial Ethernet and Optical Network

Modular Level-3 Safety Protection Module

Security Risk of Network Structure

Complex network structure, many system interface, lack of effective regional segregation.

ISCS has many subsystem interfaces, but without effective safety protection measure.

Lack of Intrusion detection and security self-check mechanism; can not find the risk of network in time and do the security self-check of the network.

The subsystem lack of the access, deny or reorientation to data flow, and lack of audit and control of network services and access.

Security Risk of System Bug

The operating system of terminal device have lots of system bug and cannot be repaired in time.

Subsystem controller mostly adopt foreign equipments which have many serious bug ,even the backdoor.

Security Risk of Network Protocol

Common used TCP/IP protocol has congenital security flaw.

Industrial control protocols are lacking of security feature and function such as authentication, authorization and encryption which needs additional overhead.

Security Risk of Common Measure

Traditional IT firewall lack the knowledge of industrial control system, and can not meet the requirements of the control system like ISCS which needs higher security level.

Cannot update the virus library of anti-virus software timely which is installed in the workstation and the server, and often affects the stability of the system.

Modular Level-3 Safety Protection Module—Information Safety

Integrated Supervisory Control System takes the station as a unit to isolation and protection. And divide the safe area, configure a reasonable security system, analysis and protection, keep the station safe, and combine with the whole network security, isolation and in-depth protection.

Firewall of Stateful Packet Inspection Technology

Supporting IP and MAC address filtering

Providing simple deployment and high protection

Layer-2 network bridge without IP address

having no effect on the existing network

very safe and reliable

Protocol-level depth content check

ModBus/TCP、OPC and Ethernet/IP

simple deployment(modular board), configuration and management

Next Generation Industrial redundant Network

1. IEC organization has already issued IEC62439-3-5 and regulated High-availability Seamless Redundancy(HSR) in 2012.

2. HSR protocol is a public and standard redundant protocol.

3. HSR protocol is a double-emission and optional-receiving mechanism to realize zero-packet-loss, zero switching time high redundant industrial ring network.

4. HSR(IEC62439-3-5) protocol and PRP(IEC62439-3-4) protocol can be adopted at the same time, and can realize the switching of network A and network B in hardware layer.

PRP-Parallel Redundancy Protocol

DANP is the node supporting PRP protocol, and separately connect network A and Network B.

DANP have same IP and MAC address in Network A and Network B, and send the same packet to Network A and Network B at the same time.

HSR-High Reliability Seamless Redundant Backbone Network
