RailTel has diversified its business by foraying into the Signaling business. RailTel Enterprise Limited (REL), a subsidiary of RailTel has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with TVM Signaling and Transportation Systems India Private Limited for the purpose of hosting a cloud based signaling application in RailTel data centres. This is expected to change the way the Indian Railways handles signaling design, alterations, proof checking and certification.

Signal Design is a major area of concern for rail operations from the angle of time taken, errors, re-work, modifications and subsequent delays, complete simulation testing with documentation and traceability. Design automation software tools have now become an integral part of the RailTel's design centre.  Features ranging from yard and signal configuration plan to control tables to preparation of application logic with modules for verification and validation and simulation testing and certification are now common.

According to Railtel, this is a first step to achieve the end objective of high level of safety, efficiency and profitability of railways by improving line capacity, headway and throughput with minimal investments. This can be achieved with modernization of signaling with optimal utilization of created physical assets. RailTel plans to play a big role in helping the Indian Railways achieve these objectives in minimum time and cost.
