The Subway Guys

Phase I Launch at Toronto Subway

With all apologies to Jared, we’re the subway guys.

At least that’s how an attendee at this summer’s New York State Wireless Association Wireless Forum 2013  referred to us.

It’s hard to argue… SOLiD enables wireless at the world’s largest subway systems including the Seoul Metro (the world’s longest system by length) and the New York City Subway (the world’s largest subway system based on the number of stations).

SOLiD also empowers wireless in the Sofia Metro in Bulgaria.

And now the Toronto Subway, where we were recently on-hand with other project partners and stakeholders to help celebrate the launch of wireless service at the busiest two stations of the Toronto Subway: St. George and Bloor-Yonge stations.

BAI Canada was awarded the project from the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) to build and operate the network which will deliver Wi-Fi and cellular coverage to all the subway stations including platforms, mezzanines, walkways and stairwells. The TTC anticipates that the design, installation, construction and full implementation of the new wireless network will be completed by the end of 2017.

Here’s a list of news releases and media coverage:
