Five Challenges of Underground Environments – Part Four: Ensuring Installation Engineers have the right skillset

Mind the skills gap! Part 4 of BAI Communications UK CEO Billy D’Arcy’s blog series on the challenges of deploying wireless for underground rail discusses how to ensure teams have the right skillset when installing high-speed communications in metro rail environments.

Engineering against all odds, or how NYC’s subway will get wireless in the tunnels

New York City officially got wireless service in every underground subway station a little more than a year ago, and TechCrunch writer Danny Crichon was curious what work went into the buildout of this system as well as how it will expand in the future. Here he explores further.

Building a better network

We’re proud to be part of delivering a connected future for Toronto through our work with the TTC. Here we look closely at our experience of building in underground transit environments, the challenges faced and the future planning involved, the unique nature of the Toronto project, and the results delivered to date.

How modernizing the commuter experience is at the heart of Toronto’s transit strategy

The rapidly growing Toronto Region is home to 7.8 million people and as well as being the economic engine of both Ontario and Canada, has gained a strong reputation for digital and tech excellence. And at the heart of this development has been the modernisation of the city’s transport network – which includes the delivery of Wi-Fi and cellular services to the TTC subway system.

The global drive for connectivity

In cities across the globe, wireless connectivity is driving the trend towards a transit experience that’s smart, safe, fun and fluid. In Singapore, Wi-Fi data is being used to monitor and improve passenger flow. In Seoul, free Wi-Fi is available across the entire city, streamlining every experience from catching a train to parking a car. Now it’s Toronto’s turn.
