July 14th 2015 – Icomera, one of Sweden’s fastest-growing technology companies, is bringing passenger Wi-Fi to public transport users in Brazil.
Icomera has been delivering Internet connectivity for public transport vehicles in Europe since 2001 and, following many years working closely with transport operators in the region, announced the formation of local subsidiary Icomera US Inc. in March 2014.
Anatel, the national telecommunication agency, has certified two of Icomera’s onboard wireless routers, the M310 and M340, for deployment in Brazil. Icomera’s pioneering technology delivers a reliable and super-fast connection for passengers throughout their journey. It is expected that transport operators will also see the benefits, attracting new passengers. Independent research in Europe suggests that once people have used Wi-Fi on public transport, they are 70% more likely to travel on it again if Wi-Fi is available*. Icomera will be looking to repeat this success in Brazil.
Esbjörn Lif, Icomera’s Area Sales Manager for Latin America said: “We are really pleased to announce that our technology has been certified for deployment in Brazil. Passenger Wi-Fi solutions developed around the M310 and M340 routers deliver a return on investment against a wide range of business cases. The ability to offer public transport operators a choice of routers allows us to tailor a solution that best fits their immediate and longer-term needs.”
Icomera will be distributing its passenger Wi-Fi technology through local partner N1 Telecom. Public transport operators are advised to contact Esbjörn Lif ([email protected]) or Leone Picciotto ([email protected]) for more information.
