GPS tracking and passenger Wi-Fi for Texan bus company
Icomera has announced that Irving, TX-based charter provider Executive Coach has selected Icomera's award-winning Moovbox M200 Mobile Broadband Gateway to provide Wi-Fi connectivity to passengers on its fleet of charter bus vehicles. Established in 1985 Executive Coach is the largest privately owned charter company in Texas, and one of the fastest growing bus companies in the United States. With a fleet of over 120 vehicles, the company provides luxury motor coach charter services nationwide, including entertainer coaches with sleeping quarters and lounge areas. Executive Coach has operations in Houston, Dallas and Austin, and its charter bus fleet comprises vehicles that can accommodate between forty-five and sixty passengers. Executive Coach has already commenced the installation of Moovbox technology and expects the service to be available to passengers this summer.

'We are continually looking at ways we can improve our passenger experience and Wi-Fi is clearly an important addition,' said John Zenkovich, Vice President and General Manager at Executive Coach. 'We looked at a number of options for delivering Internet connectivity to our fleet, before deciding that the ruggedized Moovbox device and MoovManage remote monitoring fitted our technical requirements perfectly while representing best value for money.'

The Moovbox M200 Mobile Broadband Gateway acts as a bridge between a vehicle and high-speed cellular data networks including 3G/HSPA, EV-DO and WiMAX, providing Wi-Fi access and an Ethernet-based local area network (LAN) for connecting on-board systems such as CCTV and passenger information systems. The M200 also has integrated GPS receiver for real-time automatic vehicle location (AVL) via the web-based MoovManage service. Executive Coach will be utilizing the Sprint EV-DO Rev A network to provide an on-board Internet connection at speeds up to two megabits per second. The deployment was provisioned and supported by SinglePoint Communications, a Portland, OR-based provider of in-vehicle communications solutions and an Icomera distributor in North America.

'We are delighted that Executive Coach has chosen the Moovbox for their Internet requirements,' said Dave Palmer, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales at Icomera. 'With over 5,000 charter bus companies generating in excess of $2.3 billion in revenues in 2008, the North American charter bus market presents a significant opportunity for Icomera and our Channel Partners such as SinglePoint. Executive Coach is setting the pace by delivering cutting-edge facilities to their passengers while planning for future services that can leverage real-time Internet connectivity.'
