International transport operator FlixBus awarded ENGIE group subsidiary Icomera the contract to provide an advanced onboard Internet connectivity platform to its fleet of intercity coaches. Installation of the initial 1,500 vehicles in Europe and the U.S. will begin in spring 2018, with the rollout due to be completed in 2019.

The Icomera solution will deliver next generation passenger Wi-Fi and a powerful onboard entertainment system directly to passengers’ smart devices. FlixBus passengers will be able to enjoy Hollywood movie content, TV shows, games, eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines, as well as being kept up-to-date with real-time journey information. The service will be deployed using Icomera’s new X³ multi-radio and applications router, the latest release for the flagship X-Series platform.

Supported by powerful cloud-based configuration, monitoring, and reporting management tools, and capable of running multiple, resource-intensive applications simultaneously, the X³ hardware is ideally suited to providing FlixBus with scalable, future-proof Internet connectivity, according to the company.
