Today's travelers take on-board kitchens, sleeper seats and their own on-board toilet for granted and also expect a passenger WLAN service. Guests want to be able to go online anywhere and at any time, regardless of their location. The elimination of interference liability has made this an attractive option for Astl Reisen. To meet the requirements, the company sought a simple and secure solution for connecting its bus fleet to the Internet.


Not all Internet is the same - especially not when it comes to mobile use. Particularly when WLAN is to be available to the user at all times and free of charge, the operator must pay attention to various factors. Fail-safe and with integrated protection for possible roaming costs, as well as high performance, are common features for vehicle connections. The bus travel company Astl relies on a secure LTE connection via an E1-certified vehicle router for its modern long-distance buses. It is important that the mobile router can be integrated into the on-board technology without interference and meets the required performance.

Whatever it takes:

  • Increased customer satisfaction
  • Extended range of services (streaming services/onboard entertainment)
  • Vehicle Tracking
  • Acquisition and evaluation of telemetry data
