How our rapid transit system customer completed field deployment quickly and reduced integration costs
- Industry: Transportation
- Region: North America
A rapid transit system customer needed a partner capable of offering a fully-integrated single-board computer (SBC) with ram and OS. This SBC needed to support easy installation within their upgraded Automated Fare Collection (AFC) systems. Analogously, the customer lacked existing CLA with Microsoft and needed to select a partner that could both provide licenses and pre-install OS/application software prior to shipping. To this end, they contacted Advantech while upgrading their AFC system.
Advantech provided specific assistance that enabled this transportation authority to define their modernized AFC system and deploy it quickly and easily, saving time and integration costs. Indeed, choosing Advantech as a partner empowered our customer to focus on overall system development and field installation updates.
