Cruising by bus in an interconnected world
In today’s time people are used to be always online. That is why public road transport wants to provide internet access to the passengers of coaches and busses. This is a trend driven by the availability of capable broadband services in mobile cellular networks.
Bosch’s Coach MediaRouter will operate as a link between the inside and the outside world of a coach. Within the cabin the device will provide internet access to passengers. Passengers will be able to get access to a Wi-Fi hotspot by using their mobile devices to browse the internet or to do social networking while riding. So, within the cabin the router will act as a Wi-Fi access point (AP).
Connections are also routed to the internet by using broadband cellular network telecommunication services. Thus, the devices will come with a connectivity module integrated using 4G (LTE) technologies. To enlarge bandwidth on all radios the router will provide capabilities multiple devices to share resources in a distributed network.
The device is also intended to be used for deploying multimedia content wirelessly to the passengers. Media server service allows music, image and video files on the local storage to be played back by compatible client devices (streaming). The devices will automatically communicate via Universal Plug & Play (UPnP).
