Introduction 

The TAP-6226 trackside wireless unit is designed for board to ground wireless communication. It is a highly compact and rugged wireless unit that integrates two access points, a managed fiber switch, and a wide-range AC/DC power supply, all into one box. The IP68 housing allows the unit to withstand the harshest weather, and M12 connectors make the unit shock and vibration proof. The TAP-6226 supports advanced controller-based Turbo Roaming technology for applications such as Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC). The unit can
supply power to up to 4 PoE devices while providing reliable LAN communication with Moxa’s Turbo Chain technology.

White Paper: The Four Most Useful Technologies for Train-to-Ground Communications 

Wireless networks are easier to deploy than wired networks, but they can only be used for demanding industrial applications if they meet high reliability and bandwidth requirements. Today, however, wireless technologies are now mature enough to support critical industrial systems and intense applications such as video-over-wireless.This guidebook provide greater insight into the benefits Moxa can offer customers who would like to implement seamless video transmission over high bandwidth wireless networks.
