Eurotech Wins $1.4M Contract in the United States with King County Metro

King County Metro Transit Uses Eurotech Mobile Router to Deliver Secure Data, Voice and Video Communication 

Amaro (Italy) – April 21st, 2016 – Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products and IoT systems, today announces a contract with King County Metro Transit to deliver its mobile access router to buses in the greater-Seattle area. The 12-month contract is valued at $1.4 Million USD. King County Metro Transit has been working with Eurotech since 2010 to enable wireless communication with diverse on-board systems such as vehicle diagnostics, GPS and fare collection through a single mobile access router installed on each bus. 

The product chosen by King County Metro Transit is an integrated rugged Cisco mobile IP router specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of trains, buses, first responders and other service vehicles. Combined with a Eurotech embedded Linux wireless communication controller, the router supports King County Metro’s fleet communications for many years to come. 

King County Metro Transit serves more than 2 million area residents, with a daily weekday ridership of approximately 400,000 boardings. Eurotech’s modular mobile access router is used to seamlessly connect vehicles to the agency’s IP network through a 4.9 GHz wireless corridor. This product will be used to transfer electronic fare payments and other operational data to and from transit buses, provide seamless network roaming for transit signal priority operation and display bus departure information on electronic signs along selected corridors. 

“King County Metro is a public transit agency that is using technology evolution to improve the rider experience,” explains Larry Wall, CEO of Eurotech Inc. “As Eurotech continues our relationship with King County Metro, together we evaluate upcoming requirements and deliver solutions that serve the region’s transit passengers, who rely on King County Metro on a daily basis.” 

Under the contract, Eurotech will deliver the routers to King County Metro Transit in 2016 and 2017.
