NetModule Wins Hamburger Hochbahn AG Contract

LTE Advanced Routers for the Entire Bus Fleet

NetModule has won a contract of Hamburger Hochbahn AG (HOCHBAHN) to supply the passenger WiFi equipment for the entire fleet (ca 1000 buses) and received the corresponding order of around 1000 vehicle routers (NB2800 Series). The entire bus fleet is to be equipped with WiFi routers by middle of 2018.
This project integrates leading-edge technology in the field of passenger WiFi and bus routers setting a new benchmark: Based on LTE Advanced with download rates of up to 300 Mbps (older LTE standards support 100 Mbps) it is therefore well prepared for the future.
The NB2800 Vehicle Routers are equipped with two LTE Advanced modules and therefore able to provide an Internet connection with a theoretical maximum download rate of 600 Mbps (equivalent to DSL 600’000 or almost Gigabit Ethernet with 1’000 Mbps). In order to guarantee this performance via the LTE network of Telekom to the local WiFi-provider GmbH, a software was implemented in cooperation with Travelping GmbH(*). Passengers thus can enjoy the currently fastest free WiFi throughout Germany. It’s based on the mobile radio network of T-Mobile.
Starting in April 2016, a test operation including 100 routers was supported by NetModule and its devices. Thanks to its functional and robust design, the e1-certified NB2800 MediaVehicle router is excellently suited for use in buses and other road vehicles.
With dual LTE and up to 867 Gbit/s fast WiFi IEEE 802.11ac on 2.4 and 5 GHz, the router combines latest technology and lays the foundation for fastest Internet access for passengers. With its built-in storage with up to 1 TByte, the device offers media server functionalities such as storing and providing documents, images, audio and video files regardless of the internet connectivity.

(*) Travelping GmbH is one of the technology leaders in the market for implementation and operation of telecommunication networks, especially in the field of public WiFi networks and M2M core networks.
