Nomad Digital has secured a contract to deploy on-board passenger Wi-Fi for operators of the Öresundstrain in Denmark and Sweden.
Nomad Digital Limited have won a multi-million-pound contract to execute their Nomad Connect WiFi solution for 111 trains, securing more market share in Denmark and Sweden.
Nomad Digital will supply, design and deliver a complete onboard Passenger WiFi solution and provide maintenance and operation services to the system. The new contract is said to extends the already existing relationship Nomad have with DSB, whilst gaining new business with the Swedish owners of the Öresund train units.
The WiFi solution is built on Nomad’s latest R5001 router technology platform using the new Nomad Connect software to create cutting-edge technology for a simple and smart user experience.
The contract will be valid until August 2024. The delivery programme is already underway with the target of having the entire fleet of 111 trains deployed with WiFi within 2020.
Owner of the Öresund train units, Michael Beckmann, DSB, said: “We are looking forward to offering our passengers a state-of-the art Wifi solution. The solution to be rolled out on the Öresund train fleet, is based on the technology already in use across DSB’s regional and long-distance fleet operating in Denmark.”
Gerald von Pok, Nomad (EMEA / UKI Director of Sales), said: “We are very excited to be given this opportunity to build on our existing activity with DSB as well as develop new relationships with the OTU option holders to establish a significant footprint for Nomad WiFi solutions in Sweden. We at Nomad are fully committed to delivering a quality service helping the owners of the Öresund train units to enhance the on-board experience for the passengers and in turn achieve their strategic goals and objectives.”
