This year’s WiFi on Trains Conference – Train Communications Systems 2014 (London, 11 and 12 June), threatens to be the biggest yet. One of the keynote speakers will be Network Rail who will discuss their plans for the future of trackside wireless systems in the UK.

The event has already attracted train operators and suppliers from France, Germany, India, Japan, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Italy, Russia, the US, the Ukraine, the Netherlands, Kazakhstan, Korea, Norway and elsewhere, all keen to join in the discussions about the latest developments in this fast-moving sector.

With over 50 train companies across Europe alone, currently offering on-train WiFi, the conference will examine how the market will move forward; what can the train operators expect to do with the new services next and how should they do this (adding entertainment and better passenger information services, for example).

The conference, sponsored by Icomera, Fluidmesh, 21Net and The GBS Group, will be dominated by real case studies presented by train operators who have launched WiFi on-board services. With more train companies than ever before getting involved in this large and growing sector, a bumper audience is expected.

Over two days, a combination of interactive workshops, panel sessions, presentations and networking sessions will explore the commercial and technical issues arising from the deployment of train WiFi around the world as well as other newer applications developed as wireless broadband on trains becomes a reality.
