Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has entered into an agreement with Boldyn Networks, headquarted in London, to upgrade and maintain the wireless network on the FrontRunner line, which serves 83 track miles along the Wasatch Front from Ogden to Provo.

The enhanced Wi-Fi network, which leverages 5G and trackside technology, is expected to provide greater reliability and enhanced connectivity for traveling FrontRunner passengers.

Boldyn Networks designed and deployed the upgraded network. It provides operations and maintenance services, including field support and 24/7/365 monitoring, at its National Operations Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The network is built to scale and accommodate future growth as the region is an official bidder to host the 2034 Winter Olympics.  

“This unique and transformative project requires multiple technologies and advanced infrastructure to ensure a seamless experience for FrontRunner passengers to stay connected throughout their journey,” said Nadia Sa’d Mulaire, Boldyn Networks' Vice President of Transit Strategy and Business Development. “Our technology, paired with UTA’s forward vision, delivers an enhanced experience and should drive ridership growth. We’re excited to have partnered with UTA on this important effort.”

A global leader in transit connectivity, Boldyn Networks is one of the world’s largest neutral host providers and has designed, built, and currently manages two of the most advanced wireless transit networks in North America, including MTA’s New York City Subway and BART in San Francisco. Boldyn Networks brings together the combined scale and expertise of six companies: BAI Communications in the Northern Hemisphere, Mobilitie, Signal Point Systems, Transit Wireless, Vilicom and ZenFi Networks. The company's portfolio focuses on harnessing fiber, advancing 4G/LTE, accelerating 5G, preparing for 6G–and looking beyond to the next breakthroughs. Headquartered in London, the company's operations span the US, the UK, Ireland, Italy and Hong Kong.
