24 September 2014 • Author: Nomad Digital
Nomad Digital, the leading global expert in wireless passenger services and fleet management solutions, has been chosen by the train manufacturer Bombardier, to provide a full end-to-end Passenger WiFi deployment set to be the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.
Ordered by the Australian government owned operator, Queensland Rail, Nomad will be installing its leading end-to-end solution on 75 new six-car trains, which will be delivered by Bombardier to increase capacity on commuter services in South East Queensland, Australia.
In addition to the superiority and innovation-led WiFi solution proposed by Nomad, the global leader was also chosen on the strength and success of its existing relationship with Queensland Rail, with whom it has deployed a Passenger WiFi solution on 64 trains, which has been in operation since 2012.
Nomad’s APAC General Manager, Moin Majid, said “Nomad’s selection as the provider for Passenger WiFi on-board 75 new Bombardier trains is a testament to both its innovative solution, as well as its successful deployments on Australian trains to date.
We are looking forward to working with Bombardier on what is set to be a ground-breaking connectivity deployment for trains in the Southern Hemisphere”.
