We successfully carried out Europe's first 5G-ready railway trial in an operational environment by combining a passive wavelength-agnostic WDM for optical transport and 60 GHz millimeter-wave for wireless connectivity. The trial achieved multi-Gbit/s seamless connectivity from track-side access points to a fast-moving train.
