Transit Wireless operates the shared wireless infrastructure that connects 277 underground stations in the New York City Subway system. While AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon customers enjoy commercial wireless services underground, Transit Wireless also delivers Wi-Fi services, 4.9 GHz band public-safety communications and other operational communications.
Since 2012, Westell has performed full system integration for the wireless access-point cabinets used throughout the subway system. The access-point cabinets provided by Westell are IP66 compliant cabinets and contain Westell’s Ethernet switch for network connectivity and power to the wireless radio equipment and IP cameras used in the network.
“Westell has been integral in understanding and meeting the needs of Transit Wireless’ complex wireless network, all while quickly working to resolve any issues that may arise in the process,” said William A. Bayne Jr., CEO of Transit Wireless. “Integrating multiple technologies into the same cabinet enclosure enables us to maximize space capacity in an efficient and cost effective manner.”
Westell performs full system integration for all wireless access-point cabinets provided to Transit Wireless. This service includes system integration, assembly and compliance testing that enables simple installation and turn-up.
