In 2011, BAI Communications bought a majority stake in Transit Wireless who had the licence to design, build and operate the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s cellular and Wi-Fi network across the city’s underground subway station network.

The challenge: Aging system and harsh conditions

The solution: a customised underground fibre network
