The Network Controller Software Optimizes use of Rail Allocated Licensed Frequencies Across Multiple Networks, Customers and Applications
WALTHAM, MA / ACCESSWIRE / January 19, 2023 / Ondas Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:ONDS) ("Ondas" or the "Company"), a leading provider of private wireless, drone and automated data solutions through its wholly owned subsidiaries, Ondas Networks Inc. ("Ondas Networks") and American Robotics, Inc. ("American Robotics" or "AR"), announced today that Ondas Networks has received a development order from Siemens Mobility on behalf of MxV Rail ("MxV"), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Association of American Railroads (AAR).
The order is for the design and development of a software-based "Network Controller." The Network Controller enables the Class 1 Railroads to optimize the use of their FCC-designated licensed frequencies within and across multiple frequencies, networks, railroads, and applications.
"Ondas Networks continues to support the North American Class 1 Railroads in the migration of legacy narrowband private wireless networks to flexible, higher capacity, general purpose IP-based systems," said Eric Brock, Chairman and CEO of Ondas. "The Network Controller is a significant step that enables the efficient sharing of network resources. Sharing of spectrum resources across multiple networks - including those deployed in the 900 MHz, 450 MHz, 220 MHz and 160 MHz bands - offers significant data capacity and spectrum efficiency benefits for our rail customers."
The Network Controller software is an expansion of the previous capability delivered to MxV by Ondas Networks and Siemens Mobility. It will be developed according to MxV's requirements, which will serve as the basis for a new AAR standard. The Network Controller will enable the railroads to fully optimize the use of critical shared spectrum resources and maximize the performance and efficiency of their wireless networks.
