WAAV, REI partner for onboard Wi-Fi service

Posted on January 20, 2010

Mobile broadband technology provider WAAV Inc. announced it signed a two-year agreement with Radio Engineering Industries Inc. (REI), of Omaha, Neb., to market onboard Wi-Fi and Internet connectivity solutions for charter buses and motorcoaches.

REI and WAAV developed BUS-WATCH® MB1and MB2, mobile broadband cellular routers using WAAV's AirBox® technology, to serve aftermarket private coach and bus accounts in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and South America.

WAAV's AirBox mobile routers offer proportional bandwidth QoS (Quality of Service), ensuring dozens of users on a moving vehicle enjoy the same Internet experience. Greyhound Lines, BoltBus, Washington Deluxe and Peter Pan Bus Lines use onboard Internet delivered by WAAV AirBox routers.

Designed and built for bus and train installations, the AirBox Transit Edition is a ruggedized router that provides connections for passengers and vehicle data to fleet operators. Vehicle information is delivered in real-time, with options ranging from security camera video, to vehicle diagnostics, GPS location, and other operating data.

In 2008, WAAV began delivering Internet access to more than 250 railcars on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority's rail lines. The agency also deployed mobile broadband on buses and ferries. And Amtrak chose WAAV to provide onboard Internet access for the inaugural train used by President Obama between Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
