WiFi is available (almost) everywhere and (almost) everyone wants it. The travelling public, idling on trains, buses and planes certainly clamour for it and they will not tolerate slow or intermittent services.

So, train companies now have little choice than to try to offer fast, efficient, on-board Internet connectivity. However, this is much easier to demand than to supply...

The Train Communications Systems 2017 Conference will focus directly on the problems of putting WiFi onto trains. You will hear frank accounts from the train operating companies currently involved in this battle - from those trialling new trackside solutions, squeezing better connections from mobile systems, as well as those launching new innovative broadband wireless services on-board their trains as they struggle to cut costs, beat the competition and enhance the passenger experience (download the Conference Brochure here).

There is no doubt that broadband wireless services have become a vital weapon for train operators, but keeping up with this fast moving sector is a problem. TCS 2017 is the best place to keep abreast of the latest developments in this niche, but fast-growing sector.

This Conference, now in its eleventh year, has become an important meeting point for train companies, rail administrators, suppliers and technology specialists all looking to drive this sector forward. Can you afford to miss out?

Join the debate, question the train companies that have launched services and find out where they will take them next. Almost every train operator from around the world that has launched a WiFi on-Trains service will be present. This is your chance to meet the people who are shaping this market, who are driving it forward and bringing in new services, ideas and technologies.

Please be advised that places are extremely limited and are selling out fast. To reserve your place now - please use the online order form or contact Ross.Parsons@BWCS.com

Held in London on June 7th and 8th, in London, the Conference attracts train operators and suppliers from all over the world. Those attending will hear directly from train companies that are launching services, adding new cost-cutting solutions and driving up passenger numbers by adding integrated broadband solutions.

BWCS has worked with all the major players in this new market to make Train Communications Systems 2017 a success. Over two days, a combination of interactive workshops, panel sessions, presentations and networking sessions will explore the commercial and technical issues arising from the deployment of these services around the region.

As ever, the Conference will provide a great networking opportunity and a very limited number of sponsorship positions are still available.
