The Story

The Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) is Austria's largest transport services provider and transports about 1.3 million passengers by train and bus, daily. ÖBB Railjet- ÖBB’s ultra-modern high-speed train operating at speeds of 230 km/h is equipped with advanced on-board entertainment facilities. During the UEFA Euro 2016 championship, OBB wanted to do something innovative— show live transmission of matches in the Railjet trains. Nagarro developed a solution that ensured uninterrupted and high-quality transmission of a total of 4000 in-game minutes.

Delivered uninterrupted and high-quality transmission of a total of 4000 in-game minutes. High-quality transmission and uninterrupted WLAN connectivity was achieved while travelling at 230 km/h.

Scmutz
Nagarro has supported us tremendously during this project. It is easier to set up WLAN in a space shuttle than in a Railjet, since the former transports significantly less passengers and unlike the Railjet, it is connected to a land-side transmitting station.

Numbers that matter

4000 In-game minutes high-quality transmission
230 km/h uninterrupted WLAN connectivity
