In-car coverage

Nowadays, setting up a highly-available wireless network in a train is an absolute requirement for operations but also for passengers*. In this perspective, ACKSYS offers WiFi devices allowing seamless in-car coverage through an easy deployment.

The complete solution enable the management of multiple networks (physically separated) dedicated to passenger WiFi, train announcements, PIS, CCTV, VoIP, infotainment…

Thanks to a multi-core CPU architecture, RailBox is able to support simultaneously two 802.11ac streams, allowing achieving higher speeds while avoiding potential interference with other networks and increasing the number of users connected and the connection speed.

The multi-user sharing features integrated into the 802.11ac combined to a standardized beamforming technology allow better signals concentration and direction over to the users for an enhanced WiFi experience.

APPLICATION HIGHLIGHTS

 

> SEAMLESS & SECURE CAR COVERAGE
– Passengers network separated from service network (VLAN, QoS / WMM, tunnel)
– Dual WiFi for simultaneous 2.4 / 5 GHz operation
– Maximum 125 clients per radio, number of clients recommended for an optimal WiFi experience: 60 per radio
– High-speed 802.11ac (backward compatible 802.11a/b/g/n)
– WPA / WPA2, 802.11i, 802.1x (radius authentication)

> SEAMLESS DEPLOYMENT
– Dual radio architecture allows using the same product for in-car AP and carriage coupler (SRCC)
– Bypass relay option for “Daisy Chain” Ethernet topologies

 

> DIRECT CONNECTION TO TRAIN POWER SUPPLY
– 24-110 VDC insulated dual input power supply, PoE+

> RAILWAY HARDENED
