Connectivity at 160+ mph

Tunnels, reflective surfaces and high speeds. The traditional causes of intermittent internet access onboard are no match for the ultra-high bandwidth of 5G mmWave.

Our solution for high-speed rail is proven to deliver seamless connectivity of up to 3 Gbps – even at 160 miles per hour.

How It Works

We believe integration should be straightforward.

That’s why we use lightweight, inexpensive trackside infrastructure to build our multi-gigabit, small cell networks. We connect small-scale trackside access points to train roof receivers that are connected to WiFi access points. This makes the setup fast and not intrusive.
