LILEE Systems, provider of advanced industrial IoT and wireless communication solutions and services for the transportation industry, announced that WeDriveU, a leader in corporate transportation solutions, has integrated LILEE Systems’ passenger Wi-Fi solution within its Commute Alternatives offering.
WeDriveU is the first corporate transportation provider to take advantage of LILEE’s rail-proven, high-end connectivity solution for connected commuters. WeDriveU’s complete managed solutions move 5.5 million passengers annually, helping employers improve productivity, attract and retain talent, ease parking constraints, improve access to public transit and boost sustainability.
On the latest WeDriveU client program, LILEE found that nearly every passenger had taken advantage of the high-speed Wi-Fi to connect to the corporate VPN while on board, resulting in approximately 13% more employee productivity based on their ability to work while connected to their office during their commute.
WeDriveU selected LILEE hardware, software, and support services based on providing the highest reliability high-bandwidth connection. LILEE also provides comprehensive operational reporting to give insights into passenger behavior, capacity and operations. WeDriveU can also use LILEE’s modular platform for safety systems, onboard diagnostics and other information services.
“Our transportation customers depend on reliable technologies and responsive customer service, WeDriveU has demonstrated its market leadership and eagerness to provide superior service to its corporate clients by adopting LILEE’s high-quality, high-reliability solution,” said John Marshall, sr. VP, sales and marketing, LILEE Systems. “We are rapidly developing and delivering wireless connectivity solutions that will continue to result in a better passenger experience and more effective operations to create a differentiator for our customers.”
On-board, always-on Wi-Fi connectivity is provided by LILEE’s service, which consists of a modular gateway, a sophisticated virtual back-end, live help desk and support services.
The primary platform is the LMS-2450-ME-100 Gateway, equipped with eight 4G-LTE radios, connected to the cloud-based virtual LILEE Mobility Controller. LILEE’s dynamic weighted load balancing algorithm efficiently aggregates the capacities of each radio into one virtual communications channel.
LILEE provides high-quality and high-reliability on both ends of the Wi-Fi connection; on-board Wi-Fi to passenger devices and the mobile data connection to the internet. The company optimizes the mobile connection across multiple service providers, increasing both reliability and quality. It also provides robust management tools for bandwidth demands, optimization for different applications and VPN support.
