King County selects Eurotech for communications

Posted on March 23, 2010

On Tuesday, Eurotech announced a contract with Seattle's King County Metro Transit (Metro) to deliver the DuraMAR Mobile Access Router to more than 1,000 buses. The 24-month contract is valued at more than $7.5 Million.

With this deployment, Metro enables wireless communication with diverse on-board systems, such as vehicle diagnostics, GPS, and fare collection, through a single router installed on each bus.

Eurotech's DuraMAR is a modular mobile access router and will be used to seamlessly connect vehicles to the agency's IP network through a 4.9 GHz wireless corridor or an optional integrated cellular modem.

This Cisco-based router of the DuraMAR family of products will be used to transfer electronic fare payments and other operational data to and from transit buses, provide seamless network roaming for transit signal priority operation and the display of bus departure information on electronic signs along selected corridors, and improve transit security by supporting the expanded use of on-board digital video cameras.

Under the contract, Eurotech will deliver the DuraMAR to Metro in 2010 and 2011, with the option to provide additional routers for public safety vehicles and up to six years of extended warranty support.
