Klas Telecom has announced it will supply the TRX Connected Transportation Platform to global engineering house Ikusi for a project to upgrade the passenger information systems onboard Renfe train fleets, the company said.
Under a Memorandum of Understanding, Klas Telecom´s TRX platform will provide an onboard Wi-Fi infrastructure that improves connectivity to and within the train so that passengers have a better user experience accessing the mobile information and services they need.
Klas Telecom and Ikusi have enjoyed a longstanding relationship in which they have worked together to design and develop bespoke solutions to deliver the exacting requirements stipulated by Ikusi´s railway customers.
Ikusi selected Klas Telecom´s TRX R6 as the key component of the onboard passenger Wi-Fi system. The TRX R6 will deliver reliable, high-bandwidth and low-latency connectivity to the train. Another key component of the passenger Wi-Fi system is the software-defined wide area network (SDWAN) feature of the TRX operating system, KlasOS.
