Nagpur, India Metro Line Deploys TETRA Networks
Tuesday, May 14, 2019 | Comments

The city of Nagpur in India celebrated the first services on its new metro line, on a citywide network that will eventually cover more than 40 kilometers. In March, the first train line was inaugurated using a TETRA communications network using Sepura mobile and hand-portable terminals on a Damm Cellular Systems TETRA system.

Once completed, the project will consist of two routes servicing 40 stations and encompassing two service depots for the metro vehicles. A TETRA system was chosen to offer the robust, secure communications solution, already proven in rail systems around the world to support and enhance metro operations.

More than 100 mobile TETRA terminals will eventually be deployed on the network, either integrated into the vehicles or positioned at stations within control facilities. In addition, 400 portable radios were delivered to the customer for use across the entire operation including within control rooms, metro stations and metro vehicles. Sepura along with partner Consort Digital delivered the radios.

The metro operators are now focusing on having the second line constructed and in operation as soon as possible.

“Nagpur Metro is a great project for Sepura to be involved in, delivering critical communications for the first rapid transit system in Nagpur, India,” said Koh Cheng Soi, business development manager for Sepura in India. “TETRA perfectly matches the users’ requirements for secure, robust, proven devices with exceptional audio capability. Working with our partners Consort Digital, we have implemented an outstanding network for the first part of the project and look forward to expanding the network to encompass the second line.”
