4G LTE Routers for Public Transport
Digitization enables the public transport sector to make use of smart solutions and drive improvements. With LTE network communication public transport operators can take advantage of a connected fleet for gathering information and data for more operation efficiency and better services. This includes the access to actual arrival times of vehicles or planning of alternative routes. It also brings further services like mobile ticketing, cashless payment, or infotainment possibilities.
The implementation of a communication infrastructure requires not only connectivity for buses and trains but also for the related stations. Public transport operators and system integrators need a solution which is easy to deploy and managed. It must be retrofitted quickly for the complete fleet and must be easily integrated into the existing control system.
The right solution hast to meet the industry standards in case of robust hardwareand IT Security and provide thebest interconnection of IT and OT.
Communication infrastructure for public transport
Welotec TK800 industrial routers provides operators and system integrators in the transport sector with a mobile platform both on-track and off-track that is perfectly adapted to the needs of the individual applications. In addition to the required certifications for the bus and rail industries, which underline the robustness and longevity of LTE routers, our TK800 industrial router outers offer numerous features that help increasing efficiency and improve services in terms of comfort and security. The benefits at a glance:
- 4G LTE for maximum network coverage and availability
- High robustness of components in case of vibration or temperature
- Best availability through Dual-SIM for network switches
- Dual APN – Separation of Data for different systems
- GPS – for precise positioning tracking / dead reckoning
- WiFi access to connected IT device for data transfer at the depot
- Router can be operated as client or access point (IEEE 802.11b/g/n)
- Various Interfaces for more flexibility to connect diverse system components
- Firewall fulfilling highest security requirements (AAA, NGE)
- Flexible VPN options (OpenVPN, IPsec, DMVPN)
