Central vehicle network infrastructure in public transport
By means of a public invitation to tender, the Magdeburger Verkehrsbetriebe GmbH & Co. KG (MVB) was looking for a partner to implement an integrated network infrastructure across its buses and trams. It operates a 138-kilometre-long track network in Magdeburg, the capital of Saxony-Anhalt, for local public transport purposes. Ten tram lines and 14 city bus lines run on this network. As of April 2022, the company operated 108 trams (including 13 trailer cars) and 67 buses.
A vehicle network as central IT infrastructure, on which we can transparently set up all systems – even passenger WLAN: no problem at all thanks to onway’s routers!
Magdeburger Verkehrsbetriebe GmbH & Co. KG (MVB) was looking for a partner to implement
an integrated network infrastructure across its buses and trams. The public tender stipulated the
- Central vehicle router to access various internal and external applications
- Securing and controlling data traffic between different network segments
- Passenger WLAN (optional)
- Potential for expansion of additional IT applications in buses and trains
Traditional functions, such as monitoring the devices, are combined in a modern back-end system. Using the fleet management system – onway director – MVB can check the current status of all mobile routers at any time. As a result, vehicles can be easily configured, managed and monitored via an intelligent cloud application. This is made possible thanks to an operating system specially developed by onway for network devices.
As for the hardware, MVB uses the certified mobile routers on2800 and on3800 to easily network large fleets.
