In today’s rail environment providing good quality, consistent passenger WiFi is increasingly challenging when relying purely on Mobile data networks to provide the train-to-ground connectivity.
Data costs can spiral as user consumption increases, making an often-criticised service even harder to accept and to deliver. Patchy mobile coverage contributes to a poor user experience across the journey, and therefore it cannot be considered to be a reliable and effective medium to allow business users to include their travel time as productive work time, or to provide the leisure passenger with a good on-line experience.
There is a very clear point at which annual mobile data costs exceed the cost of deploying a private train-to-ground radio and backhaul network with a complete return on investment in most cases of less than 3 years.
With a private trackside train-to-ground network, the passenger WiFi experience is significantly faster and more consistent across the journey. This allows business users an office style, online experience and leisure travellers the ability to stream their favourite films or indulge fully in social media.
