Belgian Transport Company Selects Simulcast DMR Tier 3 Network from Leonardo
Thursday, November 30, 2017 | Comments

TranzCom and Leonardo will supply the Flemish public transport company De Lijn in Belgium with a Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) network and onboard equipment for more than 4,000 trams and buses.

De Lijn awarded a contract to Brussels-based TranzCom, which in collaboration with Leonardo, will update the network and onboard communications equipment on De Lijn’s fleet in northern Belgium.

The new system will be based on regional multisite simulcast trunked technology, including more than 160 base stations and more than 4,000 radio modems. The system will be smoothly migrated from the current analog trunked network to DMR Tier 3 technology. Simulcast technology will ensure high reliability and optimized frequency use. The new onboard equipment will manage data and voice communication over DMR through Tranzcom’s DMRCab onboard module.

Transporting more than 520 million passengers a year and spanning five provinces, De Lijn is one of the largest public transport companies in Belgium. The company manages all urban, suburban and intercity buses in Flanders, the coastal tram system in Belgium and the tramway in Antwerp and Ghent.

TranzCom provides telecommunications solutions and integrates equipment such as radio infrastructure and applications, in-vehicle embarked radio and voice solutions, voice infrastructure and applications, dispatching infrastructure and applications, and passenger information systems.
