Danish City Deploys TETRA Network for New Light Rail System
Wednesday, February 21, 2018 | Comments

Teltronic, a subsidiary of Hytera Communications, will deliver a system composed of TETRA infrastructure and onboard radio equipment for the new light rail trams in Odense, Denmark. The system will be able to simultaneously handle voice services for the drivers and network staff, along with data to support traffic control and regulation.

The city of Odense is establishing new infrastructures, including the light rail system, to alleviate traffic congestion by improving the connections to the city center and Odense main railway station.

The TETRA communications system is integrated with the intelligent transport system (ITS) application TimeKeeper from Portuguese company Efacec onboard the trams and in the control center, where the traffic control and regulation application FMS will be installed. This application will have line connection to the radio system and its TETRA services through the interface and N2A protocol.

Outdoor equipment in certain parts of the track, where there is no access to technical rooms, support extreme environmental conditions of low temperatures and salinity conditions of the coast zone. Similarly, the city demanded installation of rail-certified equipment within the trains.

“The opening of the line based on digital TETRA communications will be a step forward in the improvement of the current public transport system in Odense and incorporates the first Teltronic transport reference in Denmark,” said Felipe Sanjuán, business development director for transport.
