A common complaint heard around the world from train travellers is the poor internet connectivity for their mobile devices. We are pleased to play our part in helping to solve this problem through our Wi-Fi Service system for passenger trains in China developed in cooperation with C Media.
Passengers on the more than 700 trains which are being outfitted with the system can utilize the C Media “Bamboo Basket” software application suite to log on to the network with their own devices and access a wide range of entertainment options and travel services.
VIA has provided a specially engineered fanless, ruggedized Wi-Fi server system to act as the backbone of the service platform, ensuring uninterrupted connectivity throughout the entirety of the journey.
We look forward to developing partnerships in other countries to bring similar services to rail passengers around the world.
