Helping stations become fit for the future
Telent were awarded the contract from Network Rail to design, install, test and commission free public Wi-Fi for passengers in 19 of Network Rail’s managed stations. Telent was responsible for all elements of the design from radio coverage, fibre network, telecoms, and civils.
Putting passengers first, the service provides passengers with excellent, high-performance Wi-Fi, supporting a digital, touchless experience, wherever they pass through these stations. With a simple log-on and single click passengers are able to access continuous coverage across the entire station, while being protected via a Friendly Wi-Fi to filter mitigating illegal or harmful content, keeping children and their families safe online.
Station staff benefit a Passpoint network giving them secure, frictionless connectivity, which provided Network Rail an immediate operational benefit as they connect automatically across the station.
