Dantel selected for deployment to monitor and protect assets for major U.S. railroad

Dantel, Inc. the leader in network surveillance and management systems, announced today that its WebMon Edge and WebMon Matrix were selected for deployment to monitor and protect the track side assets of a major railroad operating in the northwestern United States.

"The railroad industry has recently been acknowledged for their proactive efforts in designing and implementing a comprehensive, intelligence-driven, priority based blueprint of actions designed to enhance freight rail security," said Dave Lauger, director of business development for Dantel. "The railroads are vital to our economy. In 2005, railroads carried 1,898,721 tons of commodities over 171,061 miles of track throughout the States."

"Our WebMon Matrix and WebMon Edge were selected to monitor and alarm the track side assets deployed throughout this railroad's network. Some assets include microwave radio sites, emergency generators, signal road crossings and other remotely located sites. The Matrix was selected for the large remote sites and the Edge was selected to monitor and protect the smaller remote locations," added Lauger.

"Dantel has been providing the railroads with innovative remote monitoring solutions for over 30 years," said Alan Hutcheson, president and CEO of Dantel. "Due to elevated security concerns throughout the industry we believe we will see strong interest in railroad applications for our third generation remote monitoring platforms."
