Transportation deployments face a number of challenges. Spotty network coverage produces cellular dead spots throughout the trip. Even when connectivity is available, there may not be enough throughput for bandwidth-intensive tasks such as streaming or videoconferencing. SpeedFusion SD-WAN solves this problem by combining the bandwidth of multiple connections.
In addition, Routers, access points, and cameras all need a reliable supply of power to operate. The SD Power Management Unit (SD-PMU) and the upcoming BR1 Power regulates and manages power directly from the vehicle, while the rugged SD-Switches deliver 802.3at PoE to cameras, access points, and Ip Phones. To pull our ecosystem together, we have InControl cloud management. From any web browser, users could manage all the aforementioned devices as well as track the location of any vehicle equipped with a GPS-enabled Peplink router.
Network Diagram: The Big Picture
Objective: Provide unbreakable connectivity and video surveillance for each train cabin
Cellular reception varied throughout the length of the train
Access Points and Cameras needed to be connected and powered from batteries located at the first and last carriage
Only one Ethernet cable can travel between each train carriage
Peplink will be launching high-speed connectivity for 5G ready platforms:
► MAX HD2 MBX (with Cat 18)
► MAX HD6 MBX (with Cat 12)
Announcements about other Cat 12 models for all budgets, will be made on our Forum. Please check back for updates on these and other new products.
