Oscar Wilde once wrote: “I never travel without my diary. You should always have something sensational to read on the train.”
Nowadays, we all have something sensational at our fingertips all the time – if there’s Wi-Fi, there’s bound to be something to read on the Internet. Austria’s most popular regional train – the Wiener Lokalbahn – is no exception. People want to stay connected. Here you can see how Mikrotik’ s friends from Netzwaren Handels- und IT-Dienstleistungs GmbH have redesigned the Wiener Lokalbahn to meet this demand:
“Up to 35,000 passengers per day use the Wiener Lokalbahn for their way to work, to education or for leisure. To make this journey even more attractive, Wiener Lokalbahnen is testing the offer of free WLAN in four selected railcars from March 2016.
The technical equipment of the trains included the kits and R11e-2HnD interfaces, while the stations are equipped with mANTBox 52 15s base stations.
After the successful completion of the test phase, the project was launched in 2017. Since then, the train fleet has been successfully expanded to 30 trains and 8 stops. The feedback from passengers was very positive. Tests have shown that the MikroTik components are highly available and ideally suited for this purpose.”
