The LAT Group has developed a modern showroom concept close to the RAW site in Berlin. With the support of various partners, including Antonics GmbH and IT am Fahrzeug (organizational unit of DB vehicle maintenance), an old DDR S-Bahn wagon was technically modernized: From passenger displays to transmission technology (5G antennas) & passenger WiFi. In addition to the original seating, the wagon now has a meeting room and a bar. The 476 series car from 1929 can now be rented for customer appointments and events. Workshops are also held on site, where corporations, family businesses and start-ups from the mobility scene come together to be creative, brainstorm and mingle.
“We are convinced that we have to think about mobility from the passenger's point of view. We consciously practice how we can implement their wishes in existing vehicles in an old train - the existing vehicles are a challenge in themselves. In the spirit of Joint Innovation, we invite experts to help us shape the passenger experience. The transfer of knowledge benefits our entire industry." (Larissa Zeichhardt, Managing Director LAT Funkanlagen-Service GmbH)
Equipped with the latest network technology and supported by twelve companies, LAT makes public transport technology a live experience. Exhibitors include long-standing partners such as Antonics GmbH, Axis Communications and Luminator Technology Group and many more.
“We immediately supported the innovative idea of LAT to combine best practices of modern transport technology in an S-Bahn wagon. The smooth cooperation with LAT and Colibri was pure joy and lead to great results. Our technology is now clearly presented in the showroom. Visitors can see, try and feel our ultra-flat indoor antennas from the OmPlecs®-TOP 90 RAIL WiFi 2.4-5.8 MIMO 4x4 series in the meeting room and the outdoor antennas from the OmPlecs®-TOP 200 AMR-UB MF-05 -5 series on the roof of the train as well as our 5G MIMO 4x4 in combination with the Colibri technology. Together with LAT and IT am Fahrzeug, nothing stops us from the further digitization in the transport industry.” (René Röder, CTO at Antonics GmbH)
