On-board Wi-Fi is no longer seen as a luxury and is often expected by passengers – not just on long journeys, but increasingly on short commutes.
21st Century has forged relationships with the very best mobile hot-spot manufacturers to bring customers the most robust and reliable mobile internet solutions available.
From an end user point of view, the technology works in exactly the same way as a fixed-location hotspot; simply attach to the hot-spot for internet access.
On-board routers work by taking single 3G/4G channels and bonding to a multi-network system; this results in providing the maximum possible bandwidth and coverage to your passengers. It also provides as much protection as feasible against network blackspots – if one provider has no coverage of an area, others often will.
Passenger access to the internet is controlled by the operator, allowing you to track usage-by-device, see when and where passengers usually log on to your Wi-Fi and provide effective filtering against persons viewing inappropriate material on your vehicles.
In the future, collated passenger data could also be used as a potential revenue stream, providing your customers with targeted advertising for local businesses around their boarding and alighting points.
We are able to install on-board Wi-Fi as a standalone system, or alternatively it can be integrated into a more comprehensive solution. By utilising the routers on-board your vehicle, we can move other on-board system data to your back-office, reducing the amount of infrastructure required to be installed and maintained within your fleet.
