The system replaces earlier communication methods with a single streamlined digital radio system, which carries directly signaling and operational information between the moving train driver, guard & train controller on ground enabling higher speeds, and greater traffic density with improved safety, security & reliability.
Under this project, Nokia Siemens Networks supplied an end-to-end GSM-R radio system, including switching, base stations and controllers, cab radios and hand held devices. The Railway@Vantage Intelligent Network software enables the train controller and the driver/ guard to contact each other even without knowing mobile numbers or location of the locomotive.
To ensure network efficiency and stability, Nokia Siemens Networks will also provide a broad range of services including network design, installation and commissioning, project management, training, operations and maintenance, network integration and as well as management of the network for one year.
