onway ICS1500: Affordable communication system

The new onway integrated communication system ICS1500 will soon be available. This inexpensive entry-level system offers the ideal way to network existing infrastructure (e.g. display boards, ticket machines, etc.). Since this communication system runs on the same operating system as the more comprehensive R2800/R3800 routers, the ICS1500can be easily combined with them and they can be managed together via the cloud. The ICS1500 is also ideally suited to replace 2G, which will be switched off in Switzerland at the end of 2020.
Our sales associates Stephan Harder and Markus Lieberherr would be happy to provide you with further information.

Free wireless LAN on the Gornergrat Bahn

Passengers travelling on the Gornergrat Bahn (GGB) and the Täsch-Zermatt shuttle train operated by Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn (MGBahn) have had access to continuous free wireless LAN on their journey from Täsch to the Gornergrat since early December.

WLAN coverage begins at the Matterhorn Terminal in Täsch, is available throughout the shuttle trains and stations along the MGBahn and GGB in Zermatt, continues uninterrupted on GGB trains and is also available on the Gornergrat – 3089 meters above sea level. “By offering continuous free WLAN, our guests benefit from real added value throughout their journey from Täsch to the Gornergrat. Foreign guests in particular have the opportunity to save and share their photo and video impressions on the internet and via social media,” says Marco Tacchella, Head of Marketing and Sales for MGBahn and GGB. In addition, travellers can – if they wish – receive insightful tips and information about their trip to Zermatt and the Gornergrat, or they can subscribe to the newsletter to keep up to date with the latest news about the popular excursion mountain, the Matterhorn. Reports on the current traffic situation can also be accessed online. GGB is the first public transport company in Switzerland to offer its customers free WLAN access. To register, guests enter their mobile phone number and then authenticate themselves via SMS code. Guests are then directly connected to the WLAN and can use all digital services. The free WLAN solution was jointly implemented by WLAN-Partner and Sunrise, and has been very well received since its launch at the beginning of December. In the first few weeks alone, over 1000 guests a day used the service.

Free entry to Bus2Bus in Berlin thanks to CloudGuard

The Bus2Bus event is being held this year in Berlin for the second time. From 19th-21st March 2019, bus companies, bus manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and visionaries from across the sector are coming together to inspire one another with new ideas and solutions. The relatively new specialist event for the bus industry stands out thanks to its modern trade fair concept, which supplements the classic trade fair with a congress and future forum, and attaches particular importance to networking.

And this is why we’ve decided to be part of the action this year, too.

On Stand 307 in Hall 26 we will be presenting our «onway» brand.

Would you like to join us at Bus2Bus? Then send us an email to request a free voucher code to obtain your entry ticket.

Looking back at the World Rail Festival 2018

This year saw the eighth edition of the World Rail Festival. All key players from the rail industry met in Amsterdam (NL) on 12-14th November 2018. Over the course of three days, discussions primarily focused on the latest topics such as digitalisation, commercial growth and the travel ecosystem of the future.

Many exciting speeches and round-table sessions revealed new approaches and ways of thinking. This included the speech given by our CEO, Prof. Beat Stettler, entitled “The new era of mobile communication”. During his speech, he presented new communication solutions for the rail sector of the future to the interested audience.

The many networking platforms made available during the festival were extremely well organised and actively used.  Maintaining personal contacts – one of the main focuses of the event – came into its own thanks to the modern, easy-to-use Meetup app.

We can look back on a very impressive and exciting time, and look forward to being part of the event again next year.
