Increases in rail, bus and air passenger numbers, coupled with the increased demands for service quality, mean that the provision of passenger information has become a central part of the modern public transport experience. Travellers can be catered for by the passenger information features of the NetSpire™ Integrated Communications platform – including Public Address, Digital Voice Announcement, and Passenger Information Display.
The VoIP based NetSpire™ platform is a robust distributed communication platform which supports several thousand remote nodes, and all of which can be controlled by centralised operators. High quality digital audio, LED displays and LCD⁄Plasma are all supported within the NetSpireTM system. Integration into many of the leading timetabling and control systems allows real time service information to be passed to travellers automatically.
NetSpire™ Passenger Information systems typically include a number of remote Gateway units which are located on a WAN or LAN. Communication from operators is routed via the Communications Exchange. The Gateway units are responsible for queuing and prioritising LLPA, DVA and InfoPoint announcements, as well as managing LED and LCD⁄Plasma display outputs.
