Nokia Supplies Network for Malaysian Mass Rapid Transit Line
Tuesday, March 28, 2017 | Comments

Malaysia launched its first mass rapid transit line with the help of Nokia and LG CNS. Nokia supplied a mission-critical communications network to LG CNS, a South Korean-based systems integrator, which is supporting railway operations on the new SBK line that will ultimately cover 51 kilometers and serve the 1.2 million residents in and around Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur.

The northern section of the SBK line (phase one) has been in operation since December 2016, and the southern and underground section (phase two) is planned to be operational by the end of July.  

For the project, Nokia is providing a backbone transmission network based on IP/multiprotocol label switching (IP/MPLS) technology to support a variety of both passenger and operational services, including passenger information and security systems, wireless transmission and operational support subsystems such as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), maintenance management system (MMS), automated fare collection (AFC) and more.

The network provides scalable Layer 2 and 3 virtual private network (VPN) services to support the different railway subsystems. Nokia also handles end-to-end network and services management and provided a range of professional services for the project, including network design, installation, test and commissioning and training
