We are on the cusp of a digital revolution in transport. Vehicles and onboard systems are becoming increasingly connected. Vast quantities of data need to be sent reliably and securely in real-time to and from the moving vehicle, and public transport operators (PTOs) need to be able to handle all the data appropriately, quickly resolving any issues that may develop.
Operators can therefore no longer afford to live in a world of simple monitoring tools and reactive workflows; rather, they require software solutions which empower them to proactively optimise their own systems, analyse multiple data streams simultaneously and mitigate against any potential issues at the earliest possible point.
As the leading provider of mobile Internet connectivity solutions for public transport, Icomera’s unrivalled experience in the field has taught us exactly which issues our clients are likely to encounter as they progress along their digital roadmap. Specifically designed for monitoring, managing and optimising your solution, Icomera’s Network Insights and Control (ICONIC) software is a set of indispensable cloud-based tools which have been developed from the ground up to address operators’ needs of today and ambitions of tomorrow.
Through its intuitive, easy-to-navigate and customisable web interface, ICONIC allows users to quickly view key metrics, or drill-down into the data on an account, fleet and system level in order to make granular statistical analyses.
Operators can track vehicles in a fleet in real-time and inspect a wide range of data relating to the quality of connection, data consumption, system and hardware performance along a vehicle’s route. With ICONIC’s formidable monitoring functionality at their disposal, PTOs can better analyse their systems, making data-driven decisions on how to maintain and improve their solution.
Central to the success of a mobile Internet connectivity solution is the quality of connection available to and from the moving vehicle. ICONIC monitors the status of the radio links the vehicle is utilising along its route. Information is collected about which networks are being used, the signal strength, data throughput and the overall performance of the connectivity. Chronological graphs of bandwidth and other available data are available at a router level.
