Parvus to Update Railroad Communications in N.Y. (10/31)
Tuesday, October 31, 2006 | Comments
Parvus received a $728,800 contract from the New York State Metropolitan Transportation Agency's (MTA) Metro-North Railroad (MNR), the second-largest U.S. commuter railroad. MNR has purchased 80 DuraMAR mobile access routers (MARs) and 1xRTT cellular modem kits from Parvus for deployment onboard its railcar fleet. This technology replaces obsolete Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) radio equipment used by maintenance personnel in conjunction with the train's event recorder and diagnostics systems (ERDS) to monitor vehicle health data and maintain the fleet. The DuraMAR solution is a hardened version of the Cisco Systems' 3200 series wireless and mobile router, which has been ruggedized and enhanced by Parvus to withstand the harsh vehicle environments onboard trains and other demanding mobile applications.
