Ondas Deploys Final Phase of Pilot for Class 1 Railroad
Tuesday, January 07, 2020 | Comments

Ondas Networks completed deployment of the final phase of a three-phase pilot program for a North American Class 1 railroad. The railroad is using Ondas Networks’ standards-based FullMAX software-defined radio (SDR) platform for fixed and mobile data applications in multiple regions throughout the United States.

The Ondas technology is designed to meet high data throughput needs of advanced railroad operations. The multiphase, revenue-producing pilot program was designed to use 125 kilohertz of spectrum in the licensed 900 MHz frequency band, testing multiple data applications in connection with the project. The platform demonstrated improved performance in terms of reliability, data throughput and latency compared with existing legacy network technologies while operating over challenging terrain.

“Ondas Networks introduced its standards-based FullMAX SDR platform to the rail industry to facilitate a transition from existing purpose-built, frequency-specific networks to multipurpose, high-speed, IP-based data networks,” said Eric Brock, CEO of Ondas Networks. “Many Class 1 railroads are planning extensive network upgrades over the next few years, creating an opportunity for Ondas Networks to provide significant value to rail business operations. We look forward to completing the pilot program and to planning for system deployments with this customer and other Class 1 railroads in 2020.”
