Transit rail systems carry many millions of passengers every day and provide a clean and sustainable alternative means of transportation. Rail transit systems can improve the quality of life for the local community – fewer cars, less congestion, better air quality and reduced accidents are all desired and expected outcomes of a well-run transit system.
The most important factor in attracting passengers is the rider experience, which is a combination of convenience, safety, security and reliable transit times. Transit operators can create a wireless communications hub for vehicle systems and riders using the Digi TransPort® WR44 R. This versatile enterprise class 3G/4G cellular router is designed for rugged on-board train environments and can handle the dynamic WAN connections (with varying speeds and infrequent dropouts) typical of mobile environments.
Key features include:
- PCI security enables transit agencies to process, store or transmit credit card information for fare collection.
- Device Manager web-based device management service simplifies network management and enables mass configuration changes / firmware loads and system-wide monitoring.
