21Net is the premier provider of broadband, multimedia and connectivity solutions to railway companies. Using satellite and cellular technology, we have developed robust, affordable railway-grade systems that provide true broadband communications and entertainment for passengers and train operators.
Internet on Board has become the new standard of comfort. For passengers, a Broadband Internet connection allows a productive use of their journey time. For train operators, this competitive advantage is a compelling proposition to attract new passengers by upgrading their level of onboard services.
The Multimedia system developed by 21Net not only includes Internet Access, but also entertainment functionalities. While business passengers might make a productive use of Internet Access to send and receive emails, leisure passengers can make use of the Multimedia Portal to watch a movie, get breaking news, live tv, or listen to music.
The 21Net system can be used for dedicated Train Operator Connectivity and railway applications such as traffic updates, last minute ticketing and real-time management of traffic disruptions. Using separate and secured wireless internet connectivity, real-time information and online payments can be sent and received by on-board staff via their Wi-Fi enabled PDA or Smartphone.
