Nomad’s solutions include its market-leading suite of connectivity and Wi-Fi products and services, passenger information systems (PIS), and on-board entertainment platforms, as well as its remote online condition monitoring (ROCM) and reliability centred maintenance (RCM) services.

Nomad is committed to developing innovative solutions that benefit the transport industry and its customers. The company has introduced a number of connectivity solutions, including:

  • Tunnel connectivity passenger Wi-Fi solution
  • On-board movie-on-demand service to passengers using Wi-Fi
  • Seamless train-station platform Wi-Fi session handover
  • Real-time automated integrated passenger information portal and PIS

Nomad combines unique services and solutions that comprise Wi-Fi connectivity, PIS and infotainment, as well as real-time remote monitoring of vehicle efficiency and safety.

Fully integrated communication network for trains

Nomad is the pioneer of a unified and fully integrated internet protocol (IP) communication network that enables superior bandwidth and high availability.

It also enables inter-connectivity for on-board systems, devices and applications, as well as operations and maintenance improvements of train fleets worldwide.

The company’s next-generation communications platform maximises on-board data, generates complete system intelligence and creates operational, financial and experiential benefits for operators and passengers.

Nomad’s communication platform is the foundation for all connected services on-board, and enables future-proof designs for developing market and operator needs.

Rail passenger information and entertainment solutions

Nomad provides innovative, real-time passenger solutions via a range of applications, either by passenger devices and / or vehicle displays.

This covers an extensive range of passenger services, including internet access, travel information, entertainment delivery and security applications.

Nomad’s solutions currently inform and entertain four million passengers a day worldwide.

Intelligent fleet management for financial and energy savings

Nomad provides rail operators with real-time, end-to-end solutions to gather, analyse and interpret data from numerous on-board systems and isolated components.

The company provides remote connectivity to previously offline digital and analogue legacy systems, as well as knowledge and tools to extract and interpret critical operational data.

This enables operators to perform real-time analysis on-board, receive automatic alerts of impending equipment failures, and feed the relevant information in real-time to operation departments and maintenance depots.

Using Nomad’s powerful onshore tool, historical diagnostic data is available for analysis at any time to support improved decision making.

Intelligent fleet management is delivered by Nomad Tech, an innovative technical collaboration with EMEF, the Portuguese Railways company for rolling stock maintenance.
