Airbus Upgrades Tetrapol Network for German Metro Operator
Tuesday, December 12, 2017 | Comments

Airbus began modernizing the radio communications network of German metro operator Hamburger Hochbahn. By the end of 2020, Airbus plans to upgrade the Tetrapol system to the latest version. The agreement encompasses the system’s technical upgrade, delivery of third-generation radio modules and devices, and a maintenance service.

Furthermore, Hamburger Hochbahn renewed the existing service contract, which will be in force until 2020. After 2020, Airbus will support the company until 2025.

Hamburger Hochbahn is a public transport operator in Hamburg, the second-largest city of Germany. Around 5,000 employees work for the corporation and its subsidiaries. The company operates a network of four metro and 111 bus lines of 1,000 kilometers.

The staff coordinates complex operations with the help of the Tetrapol radio network, which consists of seven Tetrapol base stations and one switching facility. In the underground train system, three IP base stations and a redundant second-generation main switch are an integral part of the radio system.
