Case study

Herzog Technologies keeps railroads on track with Red Hat


To make the rail industry safer, Congress has mandated nationwide implementation of positive train control (PTC) technology to automatically stop trains before certain types of accidents occur. Implementing this technology, however, is beyond the financial means and expertise of many railroads. Herzog Technologies, a leader in the rail signal and communications industry, used Red Hat® technology and services to develop a cloud solution that helps railroads quickly, cost-effectively implement PTC technology. As a result, Herzog has reduced infrastructure costs and gained a competitive advantage.
