Project Overview

Client: JCV, authorized distributor of Mercedes Benz in Saudi Arabia

Operator: Public Transport Company (PTC), Riyadh

Fleet: PTC manages a fleet of 600 buses (12m and 18m) manufactured by EvoBus, deployed for public transport operations in Riyadh.

Uninterrupted Data Transfer Under Challenging Operating Conditions

To enhance the connectivity across PTC’s diverse bus fleet, TRONTEQ provided JCV with 700 ROQSTAR 8-Port  Unmanaged PoE Switches with M12 connectors. The switches play a crucial role in connecting the CCTV system with the recorder in the EvoBus vehicles, ensuring uninterrupted and efficient video data transfer. Compliant with the ITxPT standard, E-Mark standard (E1), and IBIS-IP specifications, these switches are engineered to deliver reliable performance in public transport, even when the operating conditions are challenging.

Network Switches Made for a Seamless Integration

The implementation of ROQSTAR Ethernet switches was marked by seamless integration, thanks to their plug-and-play functionality. With a robust operating temperature range of -40°C to +60°C and a weight of 750g, these switches demonstrated exceptional resilience, making them an ideal solution for PTC’s demanding operational environment.

Sami Hundekar, Regional Service Manager Bus & Coach at JCV and the Aftersales Key Account Manager for PTC commended ROQSTAR Ethernet switches:

“TRONTEQ’s solutions have significantly elevated our fleet’s connectivity, allowing us to ensure a seamless and secure transport experience for our passengers.”

A Partnership with Persistence

Both TRONTEQ and JCV express enthusiasm about extending their business relationship. Plans are underway to incorporate more ROQSTAR network switches to further enhance the connectivity and operational capabilities of JCV’s growing bus fleet. TRONTEQ remains dedicated to providing innovative and reliable solutions tailored to the unique demands of the public transportation industry.
