Thursday 12 February 2015 | 10:42 CET | News
BICS, a wholesale carrier for voice, mobile data and capacity services and Swiss operator Swisscom implemented data roaming services on SBB's fleet of trains. This will enable the Swiss national railway operator's staff to stay connected to its service-critical enterprise applications even crossing international borders. The agreement takes advantage of BICS' communications network infrastructure and relations with local operators to enable mobile communications as train services leave Switzerland and move across borders.
