Firms Show Caltrain WiFi Service
San Diego-based Sensoria Corp, a provider of mobile mesh networking software and equipment, Nomad Digital, Intel, and Redline Communications said that the firms have successfully completed a "proof of concept" for providing WiFi to Caltrain commuter rail service. The firms have created a high-speed, Internet access network between Millbrae and Palo Alto stations. Sensoria said that the demonstration is the first of a rail service in the U.S. to provide broadband service. The firm said that Caltrain will continue to work on engineering before offering the wireless access along the entire rail mainline. Sensoria is backed by Hummer Winblad Venture Partners.
