Train travel has never been so popular, so expensive or so safe. However, passengers are increasingly demanding more for their fares. Just as they do at home, or in a hotel, cafe or restaurant, travellers expect to be able to hook up to WiFi. These days any train company failing to offer free, fast and reliable on-board WiFi services risks the wrath of a twitter-storm of fury from riders.
There are no two ways about it: on-train passenger WiFi is a must have service, albeit one that is very hard to get right.
BWCS' annual WiFi on Trains Conference - Train Communications Systems 2018 focuses 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 2018 is the best place to keep abreast of the latest developments in this niche, but fast-growing sector.
This Conference, now in its twelfth year, has become a vital 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.

Held in London on June 6th and 7th, in central 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 2018 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. For further information on getting involved please contact: Ross.Parsons@BWCS.com
