RADWIN, the leading provider of train-to-ground wireless communications solutions, has announced the completion of the onboard Wi-Fi deployment for the Moscow Metro. RADWIN’s FiberinMotion® train-to-ground solution was chosen by MaximaTelecom - the system integrator and service provider - to deliver high-speed Wi-Fi services onboard the metro service.
According to a statement by RADWIN, Moscow Metro serves over 9 million passengers daily and its Wi-Fi services are provided onboard its 650 trains and 5000 cars along 600 KM or 400 miles of tracks. The train-to-ground Wi-Fi solution, says RADWIN, delivers speeds of 90 Mbps per each train.

We chose RADWIN’s train-to-ground solution because it delivers the optimal combination of high capacity and extensive coverage, significantly reducing the amount of infrastructure required in the tunnels. This ambitious project was completed in just 14 months. Today Moscow Metro passengers download over 45 Terabytes per day, with aggregated capacity continuously on the rise.
