Wireless network order from Mexican railways

INX : 26 February, 2009  (Application Story)
INX to deliver high specification wireless network to Mexican railways for providing on-train Wi-Fi internet access whilst facilitating high transmission load applications such as station information boards, surveillance systems and emergency telephones
INX has been awarded the New Mexico Department of Transportation RailRunner Train Wireless System contract for technology infrastructure to provide free public high speed wireless service to commuters.

The newest service addition for New Mexico's commuters is the RailRunner train, which runs 95 miles from Belen to Santa Fe with multiple stops in Albuquerque and Bernalillo. The Department of Transportation (DOT) will offer RailRunner passengers free public wireless internet access in all trains and stations to assist in the State goals to improve traffic congestion during peak hours and to make public transportation service options more attractive to commuters. The wireless network will be able to accommodate up to 1000 simultaneous users, and will include fast access to data-intensive applications such as emergency phones, video displays in the trains and stations and video surveillance equipment, immediately upon installation. Ted Bonnell, South West Regional Manager for INX said, "We are pleased to be part of this important project and recognize the impact it will have on productivity for commuters."

New Mexico DOT has awarded INX with the $2.7M contract to implement, manage and support the Rail Runner Wireless System. INX won the contract based on its unique qualifications of local technical expertise, national manufacturer certifications and experience in mobile wireless technology. INX has a proven track record for delivery of wireless services in public transportation with past New Mexico contracts including the deployment of mobile wireless technology for the City of Albuquerque's Rapid Ride bus system and deployment of IP Communications on the State of New Mexico's Digital Microwave Network. The seamless solution will utilize a WiMAX wireless backhaul technology provided by AzulStar to provide a true broadband experience for the stations and the trains from the Albuquerque Metro area up to the State's Capital, Santa Fe. The entire project is estimated to take 120 days beginning February 19, 2009.

Andy Cadwell, INX's VP of Sales commented, "The State of New Mexico continues to be a strategic partner for INX and we are very pleased to have been chosen for this project based upon a competitive evaluation of our solution's total cost of ownership and our ability to execute."
