Solution

Connexxion wanted to make digital signage available with a Wireless Wan solution. In digital signage information is passed on to passengers through screens. This information relates to travel information, news items or advertisements. Besides narrowcasting, a wireless internet connection also makes other applications available in the bus, such as camera security and WiFi for passengers in the bus. More security and comfort for the traveler.

Rugged and industrial router

For the hardware, Cradlepoint was chosen. For creating 4G LTE internet access in the bus, Capestone recommended and delivered the Cradlepoint IBR600C. This 4G router is ideal for buses because it is robust and resistant to vibrations and shocks. Remote management of the routers and being able to guarantee a safe mobile internet connection is guaranteed by the management and application platform: NetCloud. This allows Alphatron Security Automotive to quickly deploy and dynamically manage networks at geographically dispersed locations, as well as continuously monitor them. Integrating Netcloud with the routers creates the opportunity to improve productivity, increase reliability and reduce costs.
