In-station Wi-Fi networks are an important part of a passenger’s travel experience. Currently, that positive experience is often undermined by having to register on a new train Wi-Fi network after boarding the train. Until now, train Wi-Fi networks tended to use proprietary technology unlike in-station Wi-Fi which uses the latest Enterprise-grade meaning that the networks were entirely separate.
This is a challenge also for the Train operator who needs to provide service for two distinct networks. This is made more difficult because the proprietary train Wi-Fi requires dedicated service contracts that can only be provided by a small number of suppliers.
