Indian Railways implements Nokia Siemens Networks signaling system

Nokia Siemens Networks has implemented its GSM Railways communications system under the Mobile Train Radio Communication project for North Central Railways.

By CBR Staff Writer

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.
