Delivering the first gigabit wireless connected railway



Speaker: Karl Liriano, Chief Technology Officer - evo-rail

The aim of the lecture is to describe the demand for connectivity, what a future connected railway could look like, the benefits, the challenges in deploying a solution, the possible solutions, the network we have deployed and its performance and future evolution. It will include the recent project on delivering gigabit wireless to the Isle of Wight Island Line.

The IET (The Institution of Engineering & Technology) has a Solent Network and an Isle of Wight Section. The local volunteer committee endeavour to organise a number of lectures/presentations each academic year. Our local post-Covid events are scheduled to commence on Thursday 24 November 2022, with further events on the last Thursdays of January, February, and March 2023. These will be listed here and at the IET's main events page: (Local contact: [email protected])
