Educational trip to the Data and Traffic Management Centres of AB "Lietuvos geležinkeliai"

Vilnius College of Technologies and Design – where creativity meets innovation!

On 7 June 2023, IS22D-1 students visited the Data and Traffic Management Centres of AB Lietuvos geležinkeliai. The Data Centre of AB Lietuvos geležinkeliai meets the highest security and reliability requirements of the company. Rolandas Judickas, the head of the Data Centre, introduced the students to the infrastructure of the Data Centre, gave a detailed presentation of the modern security systems protecting the Centre: from unauthorised access (control system with biometric data scanning equipment), explosions, water and burglary hazards (the largest protective capsule in the Baltic States), fire (fire extinguishing system that does not damage the computer equipment). According to the CEO, all security systems are integrated, monitored and controlled by special software. At the Traffic Management Centre, students observed how train traffic is organised and managed throughout Lithuania, how dangerous situations are dealt with promptly, and saw state-of-the-art equipment ensuring uninterrupted fibre optic communication, power supply and the centre’s microclimate.
