Anytime, Anywhere Broadband Connectivity
for High-Speed Trains
Whether commuting to work or vacationing across the continent, today’s passengers expect always-on connectivity. In rail travel, there are two areas where traditional cellular connectivity solutions fall short: rural routes that lack network coverage and high-speed trains that move between cellular base stations faster than a cellular network can handle the location transitions.
The only feasible way to provide uninterrupted connectivity for both high speed and lack of rural coverage is satellite communication.
Gilat’s satcom-on-the-move solution for train connectivity is comprised of high-speed VSAT terminals and a low-profile, high gain antenna uniquely suited to high-speed train travel. A smart algorithm optimizes network utilization and overcomes satellite delay, while high-speed signal reacquisition enables fast resumption of availability when exiting tunnels. This enables a smooth reversion to a fully operational mode with little to no disruption in the passenger experience.
