Passenger train operators looking to generate additional revenue, can now add Wi-Fi to their on-train Passenger Information System by using Belden’s latest wireless OpenBAT technology.

With new series of highly reliable and innovative wireless products, developed and patented by Hirschmann, it is possible to increase the functionality of existing systems, creating opportunities for new revenue streams.

Hirschmann OpenBAT was designed to meet the stringent requirements of an industrial environment so that on-board Wi-Fi can be integrated perfectly with previously installed onboard Ethernet technology.
