FLUIDITY

UP TO 100 MBPS USABLE THROUGHPUT TO TRAINS TRAVELING AT UP TO 200MPH/320KMH

WIRELESS BROADBAND
CONNECTIVITY AT HIGH SPEED
FLUIDITY, also known as a track-side or a train-to-ground communication
system, delivers up to 100 Mbps usable throughput for trains traveling at up
to 200mph (320Km/h) supporting Video, Voice and Data
TRAIN CONTROL WITH NO SERVICE
DISRUPTION AND SEAMLESS HAND-OFFS
With FLUIDITY you can now control train operations. A redundant setup,
secure and continuous connection, along with an unmatched average
handoff time of 3 milliseconds gives you the confidence you need to secure
automatic train operations. Our radios create wireless networks for train
and metro operators that are reliable as fiber but at lower cost.
LIVE VIDEO FEEDS INCREASE
ON BOARD SECURITY AND SAFETY
FLUIDITY delivers the reliable high-speed connectivity that you need for
live video streaming. You can now increase security and safety on board
and in the train stations by transmitting real-time video feed between the
train, the control center, the depot or the train station.
INTERNET ON BOARD AND INFOTAINMENT
FOR A BETTER PASSENGER EXPERIENCE
Your passengers expect wireless high speed connectivity everywhere and
FLUIDITY delivers. With our traffic optimization transmission protocol,
Wi-Fi connectivity and content can now be offered to passengers more
efficiently. Internet connectivity, traffic information to and from the train
stations, advertising and entertainment content will help you provide
a better on board experience to your passengers and also develop new
revenue streams.
COST EFFECTIVE. EASY INSTALLATION
WITH MODULAR APPROACH
FLUIDITY allows you to build your own wireless network without recurring
fees and with upgradeable throughput to deliver high speed connectivity
to trains. Supporting the trains existing network infrastructure, FLUIDITY
also helps you plan more cost effective service and maintenance with real
time telemetry. You can add coverage where you need it, when you need it.
PRODIGY 2.0 FOR RELIABLE
MISSION-CRITICAL APPLICATIONS
Our MPLS-based transmission protocol is built to overcome the limits
of standard license-free protocols and to deliver a wireless network
infrastructure with a higher level of reliability. Our innovative transmission
protocol is based on a traffic optimization algorithm that allows every
Fluidmesh radio to assign a specific level of priority and reliability to every
packet transmitted.
AUGMENT CELLULAR NETWORKS AND EXTEND
CONNECTIVITY THROUGH TUNNELS
A FLUIDITY network can reach where 3G/4G LTE networks dont, like in
tunnels. You can use FLUIDITY to augment wide area cellular coverage with
high speed corridors, while retaining cellular for low-speed, long-range
connectivity.

UP TO 100 MBPS USABLE THROUGHPUT TO TRAINS TRAVELING AT UP TO 200MPH/320KMH

HOW DOES IT WORK?


FLUIDITY. AN MPLS LABEL SWITCHING
TECHNOLOGY PROTOCOL
The MPLS-based protocol establishes virtual pipes ahead of time so no packet routing is needed. This results in a very reliable wireless
network with extremely low latency. When FLUIDITY is activated on an on-board train radio that is roaming at up to 200 mph through the
wireless network, the track-side radios make a real-time choice of the best pipe through the fixed network. With a 3 millisecond hand-off
between the track radios and the train radios, the network can support up to 100Mbps of seamless streaming content in both directions.

FLUIDITY REQUIRES:
One or more radios on the train, depending on the application.
An array of track-side radios. The radio density depends on the topography and the line of sight around the track.
A wired or wireless backbone network for the trackside radios. This can be made using fiber, copper or wireless
Fluidmesh radios.
