Ondas Networks Enters Class I Rail Market With Advanced Private Wireless Solution for Increased Productivity and Efficiency
SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ondas Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: ONDS), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Ondas Networks Inc., a developer of private licensed wireless data networks for mission-critical industrial markets, announced today the release of its next-generation wireless data platform designed to meet the higher data throughput needs of advanced train operations for the North American Class I rail industry. Ondas Network's frequency agnostic FullMAX software defined radio (SDR) platform supports all of the existing rail industry licensed frequency bands.
Railroad operators continue to implement new technologies and advanced applications that are designed to improve operations and safety. Applications such as positive train control (PTC), moving block, rear-end protection, and roadway worker protection are significantly increasing the volume of real time critical data and driving the need for higher data rates, which necessitates the need for more flexible and robust communication methods.
Ondas Networks is assisting a number of Class I railroads to improve the utilization and performance of rail communications networks with its innovative spectrum harvesting and channel aggregation methods. These features, coupled with the overall flexibility of the FullMAX SDR platform, allows the rail industry to leverage its existing FCC-allocated licensed spectrum and support a variety of new higher data rate applications for increased efficiency and safety.
“Our mission-critical wireless technology was initially developed and standardized by IEEE to support advanced grid automation in the electric utility industry, ” said Eric Brock, CEO of Ondas Networks. “As we continue to expand our marketing resources, we are now penetrating new, high-growth markets. We introduced our standards-based FullMAX SDR platform to the rail industry in order to facilitate a transition from existing purpose built, frequency specific networks to multi-purpose, high-speed, IP-based data networks. We see significant pent-up demand for high throughput, extremely reliable and secure wireless technology within the rail industry as well as many other critical infrastructure industrial verticals, with a focus on increasing overall efficiency and safety.”
