Proven On-vehicle Wireless Network Solutions for the Mass Transit Industry
Wireless technology in industrial transportation settings can help meet customer demands while also delivering uncompromising safety and minimal downtime.
In our new white paper, we will discuss how wireless technology in industrial transportation settings, specifically the railway industry, can help meet customer demands and incorporate the latest technology, while also delivering uncompromising safety and minimal downtime or delays.The white paper explains:
How technology that meets global standards and the stringent railway specifications results in high-availability wireless networks
The key criteria for successful integration of wireless technology into railway systems
A typical wireless network design for a train needing onboard wireless connectivity
How high-speed trains, light rail systems, and subway or metro systems all benefit from wireless networking
