I.T Vendors Push Train Based Wi-Fi

Posted: 21st Apr, 2005 By: MarkJ
A consortium of I.T vendors and Wi-Fi/Satellite providers have teamed up to promote Odyssey, which is a broadband wireless service capable of delivering real-time digital TV and Internet access to moving trains:

"We can deliver a wireless broadband solution that offers high-speed services to rail providers," said Paul Wells, a spokesman for Qinetiq. "Many of these systems have already been proved."

The Cloud, Interfleet Technology, KVH Industries and Newtec have also participated in the project, while Aramiska developed the satellites.

The service, which QinetiQ said could be available in 2006, will enable PDA, laptop and smartphone owners to surf the Web while travelling at high-speed. QinetiQ said that the price for using the service would be set by the train operator.

The market for train based Wi-Fi is certainly starting to get competitive. More @ ZDNet.
