Moscow Metro Chooses Radwin to Deliver Underground Railway Wi-Fi Coverage
Published on: 6th Mar 2014
Radwin says that the Moscow metro has deployed its FiberinMotion train to track wireless broadband solution.
FiberinMotion enables Moscow metro to deliver 90 Mbps per train across distances of up to 900 meters. This throughput is used to provide broadband Wi-Fi and paid advertising content to passengers on board trains.
Moscow metro consists of 12 lines and 180 stations and runs a total length of 300 km, transporting approximately 7 million people each day.
"We are proud that the Moscow Metro is deploying Radwin's FiberinMotion train-to-track solution across its lines," stated Sharon Sher, Radwin President and CEO. "To date, Radwin's FiberinMotion solution is operational in over 80 trains in the Moscow metro and supports daily traffic of upwards of 1 terabyte per line. FiberinMotion's performance is unmatched by any other technology - 3G, LTE or Wi-Fi - while its implementation is straightforward and simple."
Radwin's FiberinMotion solution provides wireless broadband connectivity to trains and metros with net guaranteed throughput of up to 100 Mbps and unmatched coverage of up to 1 Km/0.6 miles underground and 3 Km/2 miles above ground.
Metro systems present some of the harshest environments for wireless system transmission, with lines overlapping and irregular signal propagation caused by the narrow twisting tunnels. FiberinMotion incorporates Radwin's air-interface and technologies to overcome connectivity challenges in the metro tunnels.
