Teltronic Supplies TETRA Gear for New Istanbul Metro Line
Wednesday, March 14, 2018 | Comments

Teltronic, a subsidiary of Hytera Communications, will supply the system control node, control center operators and part of the train-borne radios of Istanbul Metro’s new Üsküdar-Ümraniye-Çekmeköy (UUC) line.

The UUC line, which connects the inland residential area of Çekmeköy with the Üsküdar coastal area, will be 17 kilometers in length, including 16 stations and one depot. Using driverless trains for the first time in Turkey, the line will host 21 driverless trains and a total of 126 metro cars. It promises to ease congestion and improve journey times for millions of passengers.

Teltronic, working with long-term partner Eltisel, provided a complete TETRA solution, allowing communications between passengers and the control center — a necessity for driverless vehicles — as well as security, maintenance and operational staff. Driver communications are also provided where the train is operated in manual mode.

The solution comprises TETRA infrastructure; CeCo-TRANS, a control center designed for the transportation market; broadband-ready TETRA portable radios; mobile radios; and onboard radio equipment.

“We are delighted to have had the opportunity to work on this ground-breaking project,” said Ignacio Callén, Teltronic’s regional sales director. “This new digital TETRA system will significantly enhance critical communications for Istanbul Metro, driving efficiency and promoting safety whilst contributing to an improved service for passengers. This win also builds on our long-term relationship with Elsitel, with whom we are working on numerous metro projects.”
