Paris Metro Selects Nokia for Private LTE Network
Thursday, March 12, 2020 | Comments

The Société du Grand Paris (SGP) selected a consortium comprised of Nokia and ENGIE Solutions to deploy an industrial-grade Long Term Evolution (LTE) private wireless network for new automated lines of the Grand Paris Express metro.

The project will cover more than 200 kilometers of new lines, 68 new metro stations and all of the metro trains running on Paris metro lines 15, 16 and 17 routes.

The project will provide critical, high-speed wireless connectivity services that will meet all future Grand Paris Express operational and maintenance requirements, as well as its transportation network emergency and security needs.

Deployment of a private wireless network is part of an innovative approach by the Société du Grand Paris as it replaces conventional technologies traditionally used in metro transport with LTE technology. Nokia will deploy an LTE private mobile radio solution designed for operational communications and indoor/outdoor connectivity across all Grand Paris Express stations, lines and depots. These include voice, data and video services.

ENGIE Solutions will provide its expertise in design and construction of rail transport infrastructure. The company will rely on a team specialized in strategic support for the management of complex railway projects and the integration of systems.

Grand Paris Express, as an automated transit network, is the new metro of the Capital Region. Grand Paris Express also involves the extension of existing metro lines. Its four new lines circle the capital and provide connections with Paris’ three airports, business districts and research clusters. It will service 165,000 companies and daily transport 2 million commuters.
