Motorola Solutions, BAI Canada Partner to Help Connect Riders with Wi-Fi; George Krausz Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

WiFiMotorola Solutions Inc. and BAI Canada have collaborated to build a shared network for Toronto’s subway system, intending for riders to connect with the Internet using Motorola Solutions’ wireless local area network.

The two-station network has been installed in the Toronto Transit Commission underground subway stations at St. George and Bloor & Yonge and is built to cover public platforms, mezzanines, walkways and stairwells, Motorola Solutions said Tuesday.

George Krausz, president of Motorola Solutions Canada, said the company intends to deliver Wi-Fi connectivity to North America's third-most heavily used urban transit system.

The network also works for cellular connectivity and is planned to cover TTC's 65 current and planned subway stations, Motorola Solutions says.

Toronto wants commuters to access real-time alerts, arrival and departure data and transit updates via wireless devices through Motorola's WLAN platform.

The networks will also feature connectivity for social media, email and various web-based services.
