Digitalisation and Electrification of Rail Networks


As a subsidiary of the space and technology group OHB SE, OHB Teledata offers solutions for the successful digitalisation of outdoor systems of interlockings and the automation of electrical power supply systems for rail vehicles. The integration of a wide variety of manufacturers and device generations is one of our areas of expertise. Furthermore, we provide state-of-the-art OT security systems for critical railway infrastructures, e.g. digital interlockings according to EULYNX and traction current according to the IEC 61850 standard.
Wherever a large number of decentralised cybersecurity components are to be deployed in a harsh environment, our products of the new cyberOHBguard series, certified by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), are the preferred choice.



OHB Teledata GmbH is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the space and technology group OHB SE and offers an extensive portfolio catering for the digitalisation and electrification of rail networks:


With over 40 years of experience in the field of energy automation and communications technology, we are an excellent partner when it comes to tackling complex issues from a holistic perspective. We pursue a strategy of integrating all the necessary installations at the plant to ensure that assembly times are kept to an absolute minimum on-site. This allows us to run preliminary tests on all the installed equipment and deliver it to the operation site in top condition.


Our experience with digitalising energy generation processes and distributing electrical energy, and also in the field of digital command and control technology for railways, can be transferred effortlessly to other areas in the critical infrastructure (KRITIS) sector.

Here are some examples:

  • Energy transfer or transport networks
  • Motorway/transportation infrastructure
  • Waterway infrastructure


We have been involved in the topic of IT/OT security for a long time, well before the introduction of any legal regulations, and have since developed a portfolio that meets the requirements of critical infrastructure operators obliged to comply with ISO27001. Our products are certified by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI)

All of this makes us an excellent partner for railways and other companies operating in the critical infrastructure sector (KRITIS), which are crucial for maintaining the safety and economic well-being of the population.
