Dutch passenger railway operator Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) has signed a five-year extension with Nomad Digital for on-board Wi-Fi and passenger information services (PIS).
As part of the framework agreement, Nomad will deliver an upgrade to the on-board technology platform on NS’s Intercity train fleet.
The upgrade will deliver a common on-board technology platform across the NS fleet, which already uses Nomad Digital systems.
Nomad Digital EMEAI general manager Jean-Philippe Tissot said: "For the last five years, we have worked with NS to provide first-class, on-board technology services and information to Dutch passengers.
"This new agreement is testament to our ability to support NS in delivering cutting-edge passenger services in a consistent fashion."
The company provides wireless connectivity and ICT solutions to the rail sector and it boasts a rich suite of passenger and operational applications and services, which allows operators to improve the passenger experience, as well as deliver improved levels of reliability, safety and operational efficiencies.
Nomad Digital CEO Andrew Taylor said: "Our partnership enables us to work together to develop pioneering solutions to improve the customer experience and journey."
The solutions offered by Nomad include its connectivity and Wi-Fi suite of products and services, PIS, on-board entertainment platforms and remote online condition monitoring (ROCM) and reliability centred maintenance (RCM) methodologies.
