The Bernina Express has always travelled through the beautiful Grisons Alps. Passengers marvel at incomparable views and that experience can now last a little longer: the Rhaetian Railway (RhB) is now offering passengers on the Bernina Express access to public wireless LAN (WLAN). This allows travellers to share their photos directly with their loved ones at home or receive up-to-date information about the surrounding area via WLAN.
Working on this exciting project together with our sister company WLAN-Partner, we were technically responsible for the VPN client configuration and certificates, the VPN gateway in the data centre, the guest access PWLAN using our mpp software in the cloud, and registering passengers via SMS. We have also connected RhB and Bernina Express stations as one big hotspot.
We would like to thank RhB for the trust placed in us and our solution, and are delighted that we were able to make a small contribution to one of the world’s most incomparable – and unforgettable – rail journeys.
