Nomad Digital sponsors global WiFi on trains conference

Friday, 29th April 2016

(Newcastle upon Tyne, 29 April 2016)  Nomad Digital, the world’s leading provider of wireless connectivity and ICT solutions to the rail industry, is delighted to be sponsoring and presenting at the WiFi on trains conference, in June.

The tenth annual WiFi on trains conference will be running from 8-9 June, at the Cumberland Hotel, in London.

As train operators around the world look to further develop WiFi and connectivity on-board their fleets, Nomad will be sharing its experiences along with its partners at the major global conference dedicated to raising the issues and challenges around the connectivity agenda.

Jay Saw, Nomad’s Commercial Director, will be presenting on Day 1, on how ‘The Digital Train is a now a reality’. He will illustrate how Nomad’s connectivity architecture provides a future-proofed service delivery platform that enables passenger WiFi and information systems and intelligent fleet management solutions.

He said: “Fundamentally Nomad is all about enabling smarter trains and connected passengers. Traditionally the starting point has always been around passenger WiFi, but this is too narrow and restrictive.  The real innovators in rail are looking at a longer term, scalable architecture for a networked train to manage the growing complexity of on-board systems and rail digitisation. This provides them with the flexibility to allow solutions to grow and evolve over time in a low-impact and cost-effective way.”

The event is firmly focused on providing the platform for train operators to share their insight into connectivity, the customer experience and the enhancement of their value-proposition.

Also speaking is Gavin James – Project Sponsor of the Digital Railways Group in the Department for Transport - and the man behind the government’s proposed £50m investment in free, on-train WiFi in the UK. He will report back on the consultation that he announced exclusively at last year’s WiFi on trains conference.

Nomad is preparing for a host of industry events this year, to meet face-to-face with its customers. It will have another impressive stand presence at InnoTrans in September, building on its attendance over the last 10 years. While it is also attending AusRail in November and Rolling Stock Fleet Maintenance in December.
