RADWIN has announced that BAI Communications (BAI), a designer, builder, and operator of communications infrastructure, successfully attained connectivity speeds of 1.5Gbps between train cars, when testing RADWIN’s TerraBridge Inter-Carriage Link solution on a Toronto subway train.
BAI deployed and currently operates a Wi-Fi, cellular and IP network for the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). Uniquely designed for railway applications, the small form factor TerraBridge solution was subtly and easily deployed behind the train destination sign, avoiding any visual impact.
TerraBridge seamlessly adapts to dynamic train composition scenarios with automatic connection and disconnection between train cars. The TerraBridge all-in-one unit enables easy network upgrades with minimal impact and retrofit time.
Dion Cunningham, Product Development, Innovation and Solutions Director at BAI Communications said “RADWIN TerraBridge enables us to easily create an end-to-end gigabit network on our customers’ trains and empower passengers with broadband services. mmWave technology is ideal for such scenarios, thanks to its high throughput and small form factor”
