Nomad provides WiFi for new NS Intercity

press release

(Newcastle upon Tyne, 3 April 2017) Nomad Digital, the world’s leading provider of passenger and fleet connectivity solutions to the railway industry, is working with Alstom to deploy passenger WiFi and the Nederlandse Spoorwegen’s passenger information services solution on the new Intercity Next Generation (ICNG) fleet.

The Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) WiFi and passenger information system will be built into the 79 new trains belonging to Alstom’s Coradia range of modular trains which were ordered in July 2016. It builds on the strategic relationship already established with the Netherlands’ national train operator and offers their new intercity fleet a combination of Nomad’s connectivity solutions.

The ICNG networked platform enables on-board devices to communicate with each other and the outside world and supports an integrated portal.  This portal from NS enhances the passenger experience by delivering an infotainment platform, providing passengers with fully synchronised and integrated real-time journey and service information.

Nomad is developing future-proof solutions providing NS with the opportunity to continually integrate additional services and applications over time, which in turn will continue to deliver greater passenger satisfaction.

Nomad Digital said “This is a truly integrated solution for the customer which provides them with a connectivity platform to build on and develop over time to ensure their passengers get the very best experience.  The partners – Nomad, NS and Alstom – will collaborate closely to significantly enhance the operator’s value-proposition and the passenger experience.”
