Nomad WiFi solution installed on 82 Stadler Flirt trains
The installed WiFi solution allows passengers to keep up-to-date with their busy work schedule by exchanging emails and downloading files as well as providing the opportunity for accessing entertainment, media and social networks. In addition to WiFi, Nomad’s technology platform enables the integration of additional operational applications, providing a scalable, future-proofed solution to NSB. Nomad has also designed its next-generation passenger WiFi solution for an additional 26 trains.
Jean Phillipe Tissot, Nomad’s EMEAI General Manager, Sales said: “This is great news and further cements our strong, strategic partnerships with Stadler and NSB. Passengers will benefit from a robust WiFi connection and the operator has the flexibility to scale up over time, future-proofing their long term requirements.”
