RFI has been working successfully with the Public Transport sector for more than 35 years. From taxis, to buses, to trains in tunnels, RFI has been creating innovative communications solutions for transport companies throughout Australia and major international cities.
Melbourne CBD buses
RFI provided the TLA4200 low profile transit antennas for a GPS-based real time passenger information system for Melbourne CBD buses. The system tracks real-time location of buses which allows real-time information to be forward on for passengers.
Asian Rapid Transportation Networks
RFI’s reputation for delivering quality products and solutions in the rapid transportation sector has resulted in significant supply to Asian rail networks including:
- Malaysian rail network
- Singapore LRT & MRT network
- Taiwan High speed rail network
- Indonesian rail network
New Zealand Bus Transit Network
RFI supplied over 1100 low profile transit antennas for mobile radio and GPS requirements. To facilitate driver communications and tracking applications in New Zealand’s two largest cities, the systems integrator utilised our antennas for system monitoring and driver location tracking
Indian Metro Networks
RFI supplied our innovative Broadband Panel antennas for various Metro projects in India. We utilised our unique R&D capabilities to deliver a specialised “corridor” antenna solution, designed specifically to suit underground rail tunnels.
Sydney Train Tunnel Coverage
Working with Optus, RFI delivered a turnkey multi-band, multi-operator 2G and 3G mobile phone solution to provide enhanced mobile phone, public safety and PMR radio coverage in some of Sydney’s most populated commuter train routes.
Monitoring railway control functions
State owned rail company for regional railway in Australia utilises rail crossing controllers to monitor the health and status of mechanism functionality and alarms such as railway crossing signals/lights/ bells and the malfunctioning of the crossing barrier.
Our client required a single 3G modem to use with multiple data loggers, in multiple communications requirements, that were previously using 2G communications. Maxon offered the Intelimax HSPA+ Serial modem as the solution.
With the transition from 2G to 3G communications, the solution included the customisation of the AT Commands in order to be compatible with the clients’ legacy control equipment.
The client deployed this solution at hundreds of regional railway crossings where accurate monitoring of crossings has ensured optimised up time and thereby reducing risk of fatalities and property damage.
Maxon was also successful in providing a solution for this customer that is compatible across multiple types of control equipment.
