French manufacturer with a strong know-how, ACKSYS Communications & Systems provides a comprehensive range of rugged WiFi communication solutions dedicated to the railway industry: access points, Mesh points, WiFi routers, WiFi devices with multi-operator 3G/4G cellular router, clients and repeaters.

Designed for ground and on-board use, these solutions enable the creation of highly-available wireless network infrastructures for train-to-ground communication and on-board networks (carriage bridging). These ensure a continuous transmission of critical data even in motion thanks to the advanced features implemented in ACKSYS’ products: fast roaming, pre-authentication and fast transitions protocols to optimize the connections with the access points, equipment or radio link redundancy protocols (VRRP, PRP ...) etc.

ACKSYS’ devices can be integrated into systems offering new services, improving passenger security and allowing an optimization of operating costs for applications such as: CCTV recording, dynamic passenger information systems, automated vehicle monitoring systems, etc.

Essentially based on 802.11n standard, ACKSYS’ products take full advantage of the MIMO technology: expanded coverage, higher data throughput, increased radio link reliability and robustness of the wireless communication. Designed with rugged aluminum enclosures, they fulfill the most severe requirements in terms of operating environment (shock and vibration proof, EN 50155 [IEC 60571] / EN 50121-3-2 / EN 50121-4 compliant for light rail/railway applications). Weatherproof (IP66), they resist to water projections and can work in tough climatic conditions from -40°C to +75°C.

Some facts
Founded in
Founded by


ACKSYS starts its activity by developing high-performance CPU powered synchronous communication controller boards. These controllers are dedicated to the management of specific serial links and allow military, aeronautical or telecom equipment connections. For 15 years, the company is likewise very successful in the transportation field (railway signaling, crossroad lights management…).


ACKSYS increases its expertise in networks and develops the first multiport serial-to-Ethernet device server.


Demonstrating intuition, ACKSYS quickly understands that wireless communications based on WiFi technology will grow exponentially in the industrial environment. That is why the company innovates again and launches one of the first WiFi access points and Ethernet bridges dedicated to industry. Boosted by the success met and always listening to its customers, the company quickly extends its WiFi offer for road and railway transportation markets (buses, trains, subways and tramways).


ACKSYS’ strong desire to provide industrial communication solutions tailored for each market enables it to have a relevant and comprehensive offer for transportation, industrial processes, mining, oil & gas…
