Teltronic to Supply TETRA Network for Manila Metro
Wednesday, July 26, 2017 | Comments

Teltronic, a subsidiary of Hytera Communications, was selected to provide a complete TETRA communications solution for the Manila Metro Rail Transit Line 7 in metro Manila, Philippines, a project being developed by SMC Mass Rail Transit 7.

The contract, awarded to Teltronic by rolling stock manufacturer and E&M turn-key provider Hyundai Rotem, will see the provision of Teltronic TETRA infrastructure, onboard equipment, portable and fixed radios, and a control center. The onboard equipment will be fully integrated with both the train control and management system, allowing remote vehicle monitoring from the control center, and the public address and intercom systems, providing communications between passengers and control in emergency situations.

MRT-7 is set to serve around 350,000 passengers a day when operations begin in August 2019, potentially increasing to 800,000 per day upon completion of a series of planned upgrades. The 22.8-kilometer 14-station line will run northeast from an interchange with Line MRT-3 at North Avenue, serving Quezon City, Caloocan City and San Jose del Monte in Bulacan province.

“This prestigious win builds on our strong working relationship with Hyundai Rotem, proven over previous projects such as Seoul Metro (Korea) and Salvador Bahia Metro (Brazil),” said Josep Jonch, business development manager Asia Pacific. ”By leveraging the power of TETRA technology, this end-to-end solution will enable SMC to communicate in a mission-critical way with the personnel involved with the operation of the MRT-7. It will also allow real-time monitoring of vehicle and the location of the train among other functionalities, making a vital contribution to the safe transportation of thousands of passengers each day."
