Scandinavian train operator, SJ, has awarded Icomera the €11 million contract to equip its fleet with the company’s Wireless Onboard Internet Service. Under the terms of the contract Icomera will deliver its Intercity Edition for the current X2000 train type and Commuter Edition for the new X40 fleet. Significantly too, the deal is said to represent the first full fleet rollout by a train operator of an onboard wireless Internet service and the world’s first implementation of a 3G/satellite-enabled WiFi service. SJ plans to rollout the wireless onboard Internet solution on its fleet of 85 trains during the summer, enabling its Intercity and Commuter passengers to surf the Internet and check e-mails at broadband speeds, both on trains and at stations with guaranteed 100 per cent connectivity. Also, another Icomera customer, GNER, is currently testing the 3G system on its East Coast route in the UK. Icomera delivers a complete end-to-end service, from the provision of the technology and installation to negotiation with mobile operators and consultancy on certification and regulatory issues
