Connectivity on board

Onboard connectivity is becoming very important factor for the users choosing travel by public transport. This connectivity is already offering true value adding services for passangers such as onboard media services, for example Live TV broadcast or real time journey information for the passengers.

Also the operations and the maintenance are benefiting the available Wi-FI network. A real-time access to databases enables better customer journey and allows uploading of datas that can be used also for example for predictive maintenance needs.
