Bus, Train & Taxi Passenger WiFi

 

Overview

Robustel’s 3G/4G routers are commonly used to provide Passenger WiFi solutions for vehicles ranging from a taxi to a high speed train. 1500 buses are currently operating in Spain with Robustel 4G routers providing customers with internet access and more than 3000 vehicles in Sweden currently use a Robustel 4G modem to connect subsystems to the internet.

Robustel’s ability to deliver 802.11ac WiFi and LTE CAT6 communications in an industrial package provides the perfect platform from which to build fast and very cost-effective Passenger WiFi systems.

 Robustel’s RCMS router management platform can be white-labelled and self hosted to provide a fleet management Dashboard with a wealth of features that provide a commercial advantage to Passenger WiFi system installers and operators. The ability to make an inbound connection on ANY SIM using RobustVPN, an auto-populating map view and highly accurate 4G data counting are just a few of the tools available.

Create your own application using RobustOS

All Robustel routers run the Linux-based, “RobustOS” operating system.

Because Robustel write the router Operating System in-house, Robustel’s levels of tech support and software customisation far exceed the typical capabilities available in the market.

This means that users deploying precision agriculture solution can develop a dedicated application for Robustel’s routers to customise the product’s behaviour to exactly meet the project’s demands.

An example of such an application would be to locally poll a Modbus device from a 4G router and only send an alert across the cellular connection if a trigger condition is met, for example, an oil quality sensor shows that the oil in a system must be changed. Alerts can be sent in a variety of forms including SMS and email.

 

Cloud Device Management and VPN Access through RCMS

Robustel Cloud Manager Service (RCMS) is Robustel’s custom IoT software platform and eco-system. Connecting your Robustel device to RCMS opens up a world of applications to make managing devices, connectivity and provisioning simple.

Use the Robustlink Device Manager App inside RCMS to instantly access your connected devices from anywhere. Allowing you remotely configure, update apps & firmware, debug error logs and view data usage at any time.

Use the RobustVPN App inside RCMS to create allocate one or many of your deployed devices to a VPN group which can they be accessed through the RVPN desktop application to access your deployed devices without the security risk of a public IP address or the need for private Static IP allocation from your carrier.
