The Dubai Municipality is in the process of constructing the Middle East’s first fully automated, driverless metro system. Once completed the Metro will have 47 stations served by 87 trains, and is eventually projected to carry some 355 million passengers per year.
Not content with a full fleet of robotic trains, the Dubai metro will also boast blanket wi-fi connectivity on all trains and stations.
The first phase of the project went live back in September with a rollout which included 10 stations, using a wi-fi system provided by UK-based company Nomad Digital. But how does the system work and what kind of kit is involved?
