iPTT P500 using WiFi in Train Tunnels

In Blog by ipttadmin

In this article we explore using one of the best Push To Talk over Cellular (PTToC) radios available (the iPTT P500) in train tunnels, using tunnel mesh WiFi.

One of our leading professional two-way communications partners, ESS Safeforce, has written about iPTT P500 being used in train tunnels. Here’s 2 pages highlighting the benefits of the tunnel mesh solution and iPTT P500 radio:

The challenge when it comes to tunnels, is that there is normally not any mobile signal, however with the tunnel mesh WiFi system, the radios automatically switch to WiFi when used in the tunnel. When the radios are out of the tunnels, the radios switch back to the mobile network. This way you get complete coverage, whether you’re digging a tunnel or in the open air.
