A Wi-Fi solution launched to the channel by Zest4 enables transport companies operating minibuses, taxi cabs, vans, buses and coaches to offer Internet connectivity to their passengers.
The unit incorporates a 4G data SIM with managed connectivity and requires no external antenna, meaning straightforward installation and portability between vehicles. Data bundles of all sizes are available.
"Free Wi-Fi is a prerequisite of modern day life," said Anton Le Saux, Head of M2M & IoT at Zest4.
"There are multiple benefits for operators – an improved service, returning customers, data collection from logins to track usage and the system opens up coach travel for business customers.
"Alongside passenger Wi-Fi connectivity, the Wi-Fi system features a secure Wi-Fi Accessory Channel. On-board systems such as next stop announcements, CCTV and ticketing systems can connect wirelessly to the Accessory Channel, providing a full-featured and secure connected Wi-Fi system."
