Improved Onboard Wi-Fi Performance for Rail
Delivering the Promise of Internet Video. EVERYWHERE.
The Netskrt edge content delivery network (eCDN) improves onboard Wi-Fi performance and passenger satisfaction by enabling seamless internet video streaming from popular content delivery providers, without consuming precious train-to-internet cellular bandwidth.
Netskrt Systems provides rail operators with a managed service allowing passengers to watch ultra-high-definition (UHD) video from their favorite providers using their own subscriptions over onboard Wi-Fi networks. This is vital to passengers as they accelerate the shift towards streaming internet video, and away from linear broadcast TV or stale onboard on-demand video libraries.
The managed service is provided through the Netskrt edge content delivery network (eCDN). It combines cloud-based machine learning with network-aware edge caching to deliver a CDN able to serve rail passengers in the same manner they are served at home.
Give Passengers What They Really Want
Once in place, the passengers can use their own devices and subscriptions to watch ultra-high-definition (UHD) movies and shows as well as select live broadcasts such as sporting events. The entire viewing experience is completely transparent and indistinguishable from what the passengers experience at home.
Most importantly, the Netskrt eCDN conserves train-to-internet 4G and 5G cellular bandwidth, which is typically the chief bottleneck, thereby improving the internet experience for passengers.
Given the bandwidth optimizing manner in which it operates, the Netskrt eCDN also reduces long-term costs the rail operators are subject to as they struggle to keep up with the ever changing passenger demands.
