Mobile wireless broadband connectivity for Italian Railways

Headquartered in Puglia, Italy, Ferrotramviaria manages North Bari’s railroad and bus public transit services over a 1,400 km area with approximately 700,000 residents.

As the third-largest Italian railway company, Ferrotramviaria SpA operates the 70 km line connecting the Southern cities of Bari and Barletta, which links Bari to other main towns in the North Bari area, including Bitonto, Terlizzi, Ruvo, Corato, Andria and Barletta.

After installing a video surveillance system using leased lines, Ferrotramviaria SpA decided to implement a more advanced solution. Ferrotramviaria wanted to provide broadband interconnection among all its railway stations and to replace the existing leased line network. They wanted to run communication, security and safety applications while reducing operational costs. I-TEC Srl and partner Tecknè Srl were chosen to design this new network infrastructure.
