September 28th 2015 – Mobile Internet technology pioneer Icomera will officially launch its next generation in-vehicle cellular router, the M4X, at this week’s Coach & Bus Live exhibition in Birmingham, UK.
Icomera utilises patented software for combining multiple networks to provide the fastest, most reliable connection available for road passengers and systems. The M4X is the high-performance successor to Icomera’s existing M-Series routers, aimed at giving coach and bus operators and manufacturers access to the more advanced X-Series connectivity and application platform.
The X-Series is Icomera’s premium platform. Historically it has been deployed predominantly in rail environments. The M4X addresses the coach and bus industry’s rapidly-developing need for a connectivity platform that can support multiple, resource-intensive applications such as passenger Wi-Fi, infotainment and real-time CCTV simultaneously as part of a single solution.
Speaking ahead of the launch, Thomas Roberts, VP Product & Development for Icomera said: “The M4X opens up an extensive ecosystem of connected applications and solutions to our Road customers, covering all aspects of The Connected Journey.
“We offer infotainment apps that improve the onboard experience, CCTV apps that improve passenger and staff safety, fleet management apps that improve operational efficiency. These are just a few examples of applications that can effortlessly coexist on the same platform as part of a single solution, – it is the core of how we can deliver a return on investment against so many different business cases.”
Icomera will continue to support the M-Series platform well into the future, with new “M compatible” passenger information and media services set to be unveiled at Coach and Bus Live. Staff at the Icomera stand will also be celebrating the M-Series reaching an unprecedented quarter of a billion passenger Wi-Fi sessions handled since going live in 2006. With the demand for passenger Wi-Fi only set to increase, the next quarter of a billion milestone will not take long to reach.
