WiFi in Rail – What’s the Value?
The benefits from a passenger, business and dependency point of view highlight the importance of offering WiFi and digital services in Transportation.
WiFi SPARK, together with Icomera and Chiltern Railways, has been shortlisted for the prestigious UK Rail Industry Awards in the category Design Innovation for their recent launch of the ‘Continuously Connected Passenger Journey’ across the Chiltern Railways estate.
The Continuously Connected Passenger Journey is the realisation of the ambition from Chiltern Railways to deliver high quality free WiFi connectivity to their passengers throughout their journeys, whether they are at the station or on the train.
WiFi SPARK and Icomera delivered this by both collaborating completely and openly, and using their advanced skill sets to create the technical solution for the Continuously Connected Passenger Journey. Both WiFi SPARK and Icomera adapted their WiFi service so that passengers can roam between the station and train, keeping their devices continuously connected to the WiFi.
Chiltern Railways, WiFi SPARK and Icomera are proud to have delivered this first for the rail industry enabling passengers to experience an optimal Wi-Fi connection throughout their journey.
