In St. Petersburg subway promise to run a quality Wi-Fi




Passengers of the St. Petersburg metro can expect to see in the subway full Wi-Fi. At the moment, there is a wireless network in many subway stations, but it works poorly. Vice-governor Igor Albin has already held a series of consultations with representatives of telecommunications companies.


The main theme – the launch of wireless data network standard Wi-Fi in St. Petersburg metro. As an example, we study the experience of colleagues in Moscow. Proven technology in the capital involve the construction of a fixed data network communication nodes at the stations and the installation of access points to the Internet in each car, as well as in public areas underground.

Requirements Igor Albin – the ability to quickly deploy network, energy efficient equipment and prices that are in difficult financial conditions should be minimal for the city.

Experts have calculated that the deployment in metro Wi-Fi network can take up to 10 months. Again, the experience of Moscow, the first segment of the network there was launched in September 2013, and the network is fully operational in December 2014. But today, it provides more than 1.7 million connections per day.

Now in St. Petersburg established a working group that will develop technical specifications and tender documentation. Choosing the right partner to connect Metro North capital to Wi-Fi will be on a competitive basis.

In Moscow Wi-Fi is available in 13 metro lines. Passenger only need to click the browser button “Enter the Internet.” In the spring of 2015 to identify all users would be mandatory. And before the end of January the wireless Internet will appear at the Kaluga-Riga metro line.
