RADWIN today announced the launch of its new generation train-to-ground solution capable of delivering unparallelled throughput of over 500Mbps per train. RADWIN’s latest solution sets a new standard for the transportation industry. Rail and metro operators can use RADWIN’s solution to build a dedicated broadband network for their rolling stock to support multiple onboard services, such as high-speed Wi-Fi for passengers, multimedia infotainment and HD CCTV.

Nir Hayzler, RADWIN’s VP marketing and head of its transportation business, said: "We see a growing demand for onboard broadband services in the rail and metro segment. At the same time, these operators face technological barriers of supporting such services on-the-move.

"In a travel sector that is becoming increasingly competitive, our breakthrough train-to-ground solution is empowering transit authorities to exceed commuters’ expectations and provide a new type of experience whereby passengers can enjoy true broadband services such as video streaming. Our expertise coupled with our global installed base of train-to-ground deployments, position RADWIN as the leader of communications solutions in the transportation space."
