VIA Rail, long-distance link

The Challenge

VIA Rail was looking at ways to stand out and increase their customer loyalty, contracting Nomad to provide WiFi for its long-haul train, the Ocean.

The Solution

Nomad implemented a WiFi connectivity solution that allowed seamless wireless connection throughout the 1000km journey between Quebec and Windsor, Ontario.

The Results

Within the first few weeks of availability, passengers using the WiFi transferred 58GB of data – the equivalent of 100,000 web pages or 58,000 emails – at no extra cost.

Metro Trains Melbourne, improving efficiencies

The Challenge

To implement the Remote Online Condition Monitoring technology fleet-wide, on a total of more than 400 units, providing the basis for the introduction of preventative and intelligence-driven maintenance practices.

The Solution

Nomad implemented a comprehensive solution which includes train embedded software and hardware, a back-office application for data analysis and visualisation, and a railway engineering support solution.

The Remote Online Condition Monitoring system (ROCM) provides real-time condition and diagnostic based information across key operational elements, and creates a scalable framework for the future introduction of both predictive and remote condition based maintenance methodologies.
