Home What we do Transit Communications

Unparalleled track record

No other communications company can match our experience in building and managing secure wireless solutions. We custom design each network to suit unique infrastructure and service requirements.

Transit specialists

We specialise in the provision of high quality subway, in building and confined space communication solutions. We have brought wireless connectivity to the mass transit subways of New York, Toronto and Hong Kong with advanced cellular, Wi-Fi and fibre technology. We have also worked on high-profile rapid transit projects in Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China.

Thanks to us, passengers can now remain connected using cellular or free Wi-Fi services whilst travelling.

Technology leadership

We are a global leader in neutral host communications networks. We are experts across multiple wireless technologies including 3G, LTE, Wi-Fi, subscription services and public safety communications such as TETRA. Through our networks, transit authorities gain access to communications infrastructure used in areas such as train control systems, ticketing, CCTV and digital signage. We also support public safety with advanced network coverage, so emergency services can reach the underground and subway systems with TETRA, TETRAPOL and LTE-A networks.

Engineering services

We provide a wide range of customised turnkey wireless solutions. These include design, implementation, commissioning, operation and maintenance services for mission-critical wireless networks such as, P25, Wi-Fi and Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) used by transit operators, Telcos and Emergency Service Providers.

A neutral host

We act as the neutral host for a multitude of customers across a range of technologies. Collocation provides a cost-effective solution by sharing infrastructure.
