Reliable WiFi connection for ÖBB Postbus

What you can expect:

The starting point: desire for connectivity

With 135 million passengers per year, ÖBB Postbus GmbH is the largest bus company in the Austrian market. With such a high number of annual passengers and routes located primarily in rural areas, the desire for reliable connectivity for the entire fleet was a major challenge for the bus company. Especially the fact that the majority of passengers consists of schoolchildren, who attach great importance to a stable Internet connection during their ride, highlighted the need for the move towards a digital and connected fleet in order to remain competitive.

The solution: Unwired software and Teltonika hardware

In this context, Postbus identified its need for a universal solution which, on the one hand, guarantees reliable connectivity regardless of location and, on the other hand, entails uncomplicated installation and management. In the course of a public tender, Unwired Networks finally succeeded in convincing the client with the Unwired Edge Cloud as well as the Teltonika high-performance router RUT955 compatible with it. Equipped with LTE Cat 4 Internet, Dual SIM and Auto-Failover, the router meets all the requirements for stable connectivity.

As the project continued, the Unwired Cloud OS firmware was installed on all devices, allowing setup to take place in minutes after installation on each bus, without complicated on-site configuration. Maintenance also presents no problems with the Unwired Edge Cloud, which manages and monitors all device and network settings. Since Unwired Networks, as an Internet service provider, also assumes liability for data traffic and enables the blocking of unwanted content via content filters, the company is additionally protected from abuse by users.

By the end of the project, thanks to the combination of user-friendly software, feature-rich firmware, and compatible hardware, each ÖBB vehicle had the desired passenger Wi-Fi solution in place. Learn more about the entire project here.
