TRAIN-TO-GROUND AND TRAIN-TO-TRAIN HIGH BANDWIDTH DATA TRANSFERS ARE CONSTANTLY GROWING. SINCE WIRING WITH THE GROUND OR BETWEEN CARRIAGES IS EXPENSIVE AND OFTEN IMPOSSIBLE, WI-FI HAS NATURALLY ESTABLISHED ITSELF AS THE MOST RELIABLE, EFFICIENT AND AFFORDABLE MEANS OF COMMUNICATION.
Optimising the running costs of rolling stock and enhancing passenger security are two major issues for operators. For this reason, the amount of on-board electronic equipment has considerably grown over the past years, and Wi-Fi has quickly emerged amongst it. This technology allows operators to:
- upload/download their data automatically when stationary
- manage real-time data in motion
- develop new on-board services
Combining market trends, operators’ needs and manufacturers’ expectations, ACKSYS Communications & Systems has developed a comprehensive range of rugged Wi-Fi devices dedicated to railway. Designed for on-board and ground use, these allow creating highly-available wireless network infrastructures.
