Always-On, Reliable OnBoard Wi-Fi Connectivity
Onboard, always-on Wi-Fi connectivity is provided by LILEE’s service, which consists of a modular gateway, a sophisticated virtual back-end, live help desk, and support services.
The primary platform is the LMS-2450-ME-100 Gateway, equipped with eight 4G-LTE radios, connected to the cloud-based virtual LILEE Mobility Controller (vLMC). LILEE’s dynamic weighted load balancing algorithm efficiently aggregates the capacities of each radio into one virtual communications channel.

LILEE optimizes the mobile connection across multiple service providers, increasing both reliability and quality. LILEE also provides robust management tools for bandwidth demands, optimization for different applications, and VPN support.
For corporate passenger bus fleets, high-quality, high-reliability, always-on connectivity is a prerequisite for overall customer satisfaction, and a true competitive advantage.
