Airbus signed two new contracts to deliver TETRA communications systems to metro lines in China. The company will provide technology for the metro line 11 in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province in central China, and metro line 2 of Fuzhou, the capital of Fujian province on the southeast coast of China.

The lines are expected to enter operation in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

Wuhan, the most populous city in central China, is extending its metro network. The communications system for the metro line in Wuhan, with a total length of nearly 32 kilometers, will consist of one switch, 25 base stations, 670 portables and 126 mobile radios. Metro line 11 will be the city’s fifth line with a TETRA radio system from Airbus.

In Fuzhou, Airbus will provide 24 base stations, 400 portables and 120 mobile radios. The system will cover a total length of nearly 31 kilometers. The new system for Fuzhou metro line 2 will share the switch center with line 1, which was put into operation at the end of 2016. The latter was supplied with TETRA technology from Airbus.

“China’s transportation market for radio communications is growing significantly, and we have positioned ourselves successfully,” said Selim Bouri, head of sales and program delivery for the Middle East and Asia-Pacific of Secure Land Communications at Airbus.
