Integrated locking and security system (ISS)
for DB Fernverkehr.

The task: To deploy an integrated locking and security system for DB Fernverkehr AG customers, thus ensuring that goods are stored securely in rail vehicles.

The solution

The first step was to install mechanical and electronic cylinders and locks. Then, a nationwide IT infrastructure was established and managed centrally from the Frankfurt location. DB Kommunikationstechnik GmbH provides not only area services for the IT infrastructure but also delivers a flexible and intelligent access solution.
