    FRMCS & GSM-R Guidance Sub-group

    The FGG SG was established to provide the focus for the transition from Global System for Mobile Communications – Railway (GSM-R) to Future Railways Mobile Communication System (FRMCS).

    Scope

    The scope of FGG SG is defined in its remit. The group aims to provide advice and guidance to ensure FRMCS, the successor of GSM-R, is integrated effectively and efficiently into the Railway Industry.  This will support the delivery of the Rail Technical Strategy.

    Message from the chair

    FGG SG is promoting the development and deployment of the new FRMCS. This is replacing GSM-R to meet the needs of the industry, and supports the delivery of the Rail Technical Strategy.
