Cinetcomm Engineers Broadband Systems for Major Railroad

Chatsworth, CA – January 26, 2014

Cinetcomm has just completed the design phase of a 3G/4G/LTE/Satellite-based mobile broadband system for the business car fleet of a major North American Railroad. The goal of this system is to provide connectivity to the fleet everywhere across the railroad’s geographically diverse operations.
 
Cinetcomm’s modular system design enables the railroad to provide connectivity to a single business car with a few passengers, or an entire train with hundreds of passengers. At the heart of this system is a combination of Ku- and L-Band satellite systems joined with their terrestrial counterparts, for least-cost, best available network connectivity. The technologies being employed are based in part on Cinetcomm’s new TotalConnex Network platform.
 
Network services will include both commercial satellite and terrestrial carrier bandwidth, providing seamless connectivity to the onboard systems.
 
Once installations have been completed and commissioned in Fall 2014, this railroad will have one of the most advanced communication systems for business cars in the industry.
