RailComm awarded contract for G&W's NY&PA, Ohio Central

Written by 

RailComm has been selected to provide the GCOR dispatch system for Genesee and Wyoming's New York and Pennsylvania and Ohio Central railroads. RailComm's state-of-the-art Domain Operations Controller (DOC®) train control system will be accessed through a web-enabled Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model. RailComm's SaaS offering provides a "pay-as-you-go" model, thus eliminating capital equipment procurement constraints. Through this SaaS delivery model, the railroads can be remotely dispatched by G&W anywhere an Internet connection is available. Therefore, it is possible to relocate the dispatchers to alternative locations as required. Additionally, railroad management can log in from an office, home or even from a hotel and directly view dispatching activity and management reports. 

The DOC® system is designed with built-in expansion capabilities for adding workstations and/or field control nodes without interrupting operation of the current system. Since the DOC® control application resides on servers within RailComm's managed data center in Rochester, N.Y., the requirement for local IT support at each railroad is greatly reduced.
