CyBox GW-P is the latest router added to the ELTEC Elektronik compact and robust wireless solution range, combining the capabilities of a Wi-Fi network and a communication server without the need for maintenance.
The CyBox GW-P was developed specifically for deployment in trains and buses. Thanks to the bundling of up to four LTE channels and 600Mb/s data download speeds and 200Mb/s upload speeds, the CyBox GW-P supports broadband vehicle-land data sharing communications. A Wave 2 module provides data speeds of up to 1.7Gb/s and 4×4 MIMO as well as two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces for local communication.
Four SIM cards per LTE module and intelligent control software make it possible to dynamically use all available links between vehicle and land to realise economic as well as physical criteria, such as the use of different providers to reduce roaming costs or to optimise the available bandwidths.
An integrated SSD interface supports the storage of local data and passenger infotainment applications, for instance, the archiving and streaming of videos. CyBox GW-P is compatible with the railway standard EN 50155.
Mobile Wi-Fi capable devices can communicate with the internet while riding a passenger train, coach, or trams and the underground and access local data, such as schedule information and videos.
Throughout this process, the personal data of the individual users remain protected against unauthorised access by a configurable firewall.
Thanks to the integrated wide-range power supply with input voltages from 24VDC to 110VDC and its compact, maintenance-free design, the CyBox GW-P is compatible with railway applications ranging from tram to ICE, as well as automotive applications, such as buses, but also construction and agricultural vehicles with 24 V DC onboard power systems. Its dimensions are just 250mm x 80mm x 265mm, it weighs 1.9kg and is IP40 protected.
The CyBox GW-P can be easily configured and managed through the integrated firmware with web surface. One of the special functional features of the firmware is the Inter Carriage Connection Protocol (ICCP), which was developed by ELTEC.
The ICCP makes it possible to automatically implement a wireless LAN backbone, for example in a tram, which is important for applications that do not allow for the installation of Ethernet connections between the train cars.
