A brand new lively in-carriage antenna launched at the moment by HUBER+SUHNER and ELTEC Elektronik is designed to simplify the deployment of Wi-Fi on trains and assist rail operators obtain greater knowledge throughput for a greater on-board Wi-Fi expertise.
That includes an built-in extremely compact Wi-Fi entry level from ELTEC, the HUBER+SUHNER SENCITY® Rail ACTIVE In-Carriage antenna can present a number of entry factors alongside the carriage ceiling. This builds on earlier programs which have one mounted entry level that delivers connectivity to all passengers. Having the radios embedded instantly into the antenna additionally eliminates the necessity for RF cabling between the entry factors and antennas, assembly growing calls for for MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) antennas. This offers operators a extra compact possibility that’s simple to put in and maximises area contained in the practice carriage.
The HUBER+SUHNER SENCITY Rail ACTIVE In-Carriage antenna, which ELTEC markets as CYBOX AP-A, is an all-in-one answer that gives enhanced flexibility in mounting areas and improves system efficiency by maximising area and working with out RF cabling. Its important weight discount additionally reduces operational prices for operators.
“So as to enhance passenger and employees Wi-Fi protection, rail operators are responding with new expertise in and on trains,” mentioned Peter Albert, Managing Director at ELTEC Elektronik. “Small Cells are more and more getting used and smaller cells with a restricted variety of customers will increase the information throughput per person. That is realised with a bigger variety of entry factors per practice carriage. The mixture of the embedded ELTEC entry level and the antenna from HUBER+SUHNER in a wise housing ends in a extremely integrative answer that seamlessly blends into the inside. Now, a number of entry factors within the carriage can present passengers with considerably greater bandwidth and allow them to surf quicker with their units.”
Daniel Montagnese, Head of Product Administration Antennas at HUBER+SUHNER, mentioned: “As new generations of Wi-Fi are launched, extra antennas and RF cables can be wanted. By embedding the entry level instantly contained in the antenna itself, there can be much less losses via the RF cables as the space to the entry level is now not a difficulty. With the identical mounting footprint because the globally applied HUBER+SUHNER SENCITY OMNI-SR Slim antenna, set up is fast and simple. Future upgrades are simplified, saving operators prices and decreasing the chance of down-time. As new antennas are designed to help new generations of Wi-Fi, the identical, constant mounting will permit operators to make sure their trains are future prepared.”
Globally licensed for railway requirements EN 50155, EN 45545-2, NFPA-130, CE and UL, operators are assured that connectivity infrastructure from HUBER+SUHNER may be deployed in any location worldwide.
