RFS products to support Transit Wireless NYCTA network

Tuesday 18 December 2012 | 11:07 CET | News
Transit Wireless has selected wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) products to support the architecture of its distributed antenna system (DAS) for the New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) Riders. RFS products that will be used in the project include Hybriflex conduit cable, transmission line cabling, and zero-halogen jackets and jumpers. Upon its completion, the Transit Wireless network will become a shared mobile infrastructure enabling commercial mobile services for over 1.6 billion New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) riders annually. The Transit Wireless NYCTA network will allow the use of a range of mobile devices anywhere within the system with mobile and Wi-Fi coverage options, passenger access to transit applications including service information, alerts and advisories, location-based applications consisting of rider awareness, local business support and E911, and commercial mobile services for public safety and security personnel. The system will also harness the potential to support additional NYCTA business applications. Several mobile carriers have already signed on to become partners to the Transit Wireless Network. The multiyear project includes 277 stations, 30 of which are scheduled to go live by early 2013, including stations such as Times Square, Rockefeller Center and Columbus Circle.
