VIA currently offers 3G wireless service on its express routes, the Primo route and 11 transit centers. Beginning in September, the service will improve to 4G LTE and will be available on all VIA buses and properties. This service, which is being provided by Verizon and Cradlepoint, will also be installed on the paratransit fleet by November 1.
After quadrupling its revenue over the past three years, Boise, Idaho-based Cradlepoint has reached more than a 50 percent compound annual growth rate.
Cradlepoint’s Enterprise Cloud Manager has proven itself to be a really good way to manage network connectivity for small-footprint distributed enterprises. Now transportation-related organizations like emergency services, police, shipping, metropolitan buses, school buses, taxis, and commercial fleets are discovering the benefits of ECM as well. One of the main reasons why is because Enterprise Cloud Manager makes the deployment, management, and monitoring of vehicle fleets very easy.
In this post I’m going to show by example how parallel networking works. Before I do, let me just make one point: Cradlepoint didn't invent parallel networking or another way of protecting data: “air-gapped” networks.
