Trains are automatically prevented from going too fast or getting too close to another train.
Indeed, passengers are accustomed to using Wi-Fi technology at home and in their office and enjoy broadband web surfing. Therefore, they expect the same kind of connectivity and user experience on board.
The need for mass transit Wi-Fi is clearly evidenced in a recent Ericsson Report3. According to the report, a significant portion of people commuting by public transport browses the Internet or visits social networks while commuting (e.g. in New York 48%, in London 40%). According to the key findings of the report, commuters feel that uninterrupted connectivity is a basic requirement and 55% of commuters are currently dissatisfied with data communication services while they are travelling. Thus, the need for Wi-Fi and broadband connectivity on board will increase exponentially and railway operators will be required to invest in their network to provide satisfactory passenger experience.
Railway stations, airports and seaports. Thanks to FAST-TRACKS, the operators will be able to deliver to their passengers broadband and stable Wi-Fi; stream diagnostic data from vehicles for proactive maintenance; manage unmanned metro and subways using CBTC technologies.
Create a broadband wireless environment without any trenching, wiring or public service disruption.
Connecting buildings that are widespread over a large area is a challenge against complex architectures, required licenses and permits, costly labor, and crowded conduits. Thanks to FAST-TRACKS operators deploy an enterprise-wide wireless backhaul saving time and money and without any trenching or wiring.
