You can now register for a webinar on mobile application in the public transportation sector on July 21, at 11:00am EDT.
- Monica Paolini, Founder and President, Senza Fili Consulting
- Kyle Brimley, Manager of Technology Deployment, Utah Transit Authority
- Abraham Kololli, Deputy Chief & Information Systems Manager, Utah Transit Authority
In this webinar we will talk about wireless broadband services in the transportation industry. We will look at how different technologies can meet the railway requirements, what business models will bring the cost savings and increased revenues transit operators look for, and the applications that will fully leverage the network.
There is no single solution that will fit all public transportation operators, but we will look at a few emerging trends, including the need to integrate multiple technologies, the move towards free Wi-Fi access for passengers, and the crucial role that safety and operational applications play.
Kyle Brimley and Abraham Kololli from UTA will bring the prospective of the train operators. At the FrontRunner in Salt Lake City, Utah, they have deployed a wireless broadband network that has been wildly popular among the commuters on the train. They will share their experience in deploying and running the network, and the feedback they got from the passengers.
