WLAN Server for Company Buses
The CompactPCI WLAN server supplies employees during their commute with passenger internet, local portals and passenger information services. The complete Wi-Fi based entertainment solution uses F223 carrier cards for two PCIe Mini Cards and up to 18 SIM cards on one board. In case the data volume of one SIM card is depleted, an easy change to the next SIM card is possible.
The CompactPCI rack comes with a customized backplane and beside the SIM cards includes several GSM, GPS and UART interface cards. The system is controlled by an F19P CompactPCI PlusIO SBC with an Intel Celeron M CPU. Thanks to the MEN family concept the performance of the system can always be upgraded by using one of the successor CPU boards, like F21P, F22P or F23P.
Standard Components Used in this Example
The F19P versatile 4HP/3U single-board computer is compatible to the CompactPCI PlusIO standard and equipped with the Intel Core 2 Duo processor SP9300.
The F210 is a rugged single Eurocard CompactPCI GSM/GPS/UART interface that needs only one slot on the CompactPCI bus.
The F223 is a rugged 3U CompactPCI carrier for wireless functions like WLAN, WAP, UMTS, GPS, GSM, HSDPA and LTE supporting PCI Express Mini Cards and up to 18 SIM cards.
