Success Stories

Transit authorities trust Eastern for the industry's best technical sophistication, reliability, and security. Read more about our customers' successes below.

Delivering Custom Manufactured Solutions to Meet Strict Environmental Requirements

A major US transportation system had a highly specialized equipment need, unable to find a critical part that met stringent Low Smoke, Zero Halogen (LSZH) requirements. Unable to find any vendor capable of providing a workable solution, the end user reached out to Eastern, who took the time to process and understand operational needs and delivered a one-of-a-kind solution to their pain point.

Installation, Maintenance, and Cybersecurity for One of Nation's Largest Radio Systems

The police force of a major US transit authority was facing meaningful coverage challenges given the sheer size of their area of responsibility relative to the size of their force - all while placing a premium on retaining control and responsibility for their own private networks. Eastern assisted their communications team in installing and commissioning one of the largest 700 MHz systems in the US, providing the transit authority full, localized control of their communications, backed by ongoing 24/7/365 maintenance support from Eastern and its partners.

Extension of External Networks for In-Tunnel Connectivity

The transit authority of a leading US city was seeking support for their in-tunnel communications, and turned to Eastern to extend and continuously maintain their private network and interoperability with local law enforcement and adjacent agencies, resulting in an ongoing 24/7/365 support relationship.

Technical Expertise Solves An Unsolvable Coverage Problem

A leading national railway had worked with a series of third parties unsuccessfully attempting to solve a particularly technically challenging gap in their coverage area. After being referred to Eastern as a last resort, Eastern stepped in and successfully triaged the situation through a deep technical analysis and bespoke hardware and software solution.

Upsizing an Eastern Dealer's Offering to Help Dealer Secure a System Sale

An Eastern dealer secured a system sale with their local metropolitan transit agency, closing the deal with Eastern's sales engineering support (provided at no cost to all Eastern dealers). Throughout the successful implementation, the dealer leveraged Eastern's system engineering support - to include assistance on equipment sourced from different channels. Backed by Eastern, the dealer was able to support a customer too large to handle alone, and in turn enhanced their own regional credibility for subsequent opportunities.

Last-Minute, Instant Support for Eastern Dealer to Meet Shifting End User Timeline

A dealer helping integrate the public safety communications system at a leading US airport found themselves surprised with a sudden, radical change in timeline due to oversight by the end user. Without instant coverage testing and sophisticated follow-up engineering, the opening of an entire airport terminal was at risk of delay. Strained on technical internal capacity, the dealer turned to Eastern, who unhesitatingly jumped into action in support of the dealer and scaled the dealer's capabilities, successfully impacting a major transportation hub with meaningful security requirements.
