Airbus to Supply TETRA Network for New Fujian Metro Line
Tuesday, April 07, 2020 | Comments

The capital of the Fujian province, China, signed a contract with Airbus for the supply of secure communications technology, this time for its newest metro line, which is under construction.

This contract is one of three won by Airbus for Fuzhou’s metro lines. Airbus already secures metro lines 1 and 2, which were put into operation in 2016 and 2019 respectively. Airbus has provided secure TETRA communications solutions to the metro lines of 18 Chinese cities.

Fuzhou’s new metro line will receive a TETRA system composed of a server, base stations, mobile radios and portable terminals for staff members. The new metro line 6 will be more than 36 kilometers long and will serve the about 7.74 million inhabitants of the Chinese city. The first section is planned to go into operation in 2021.

“Many of our customers in the transport sector in China acknowledge and appreciate the reliability and efficiency of our solutions,” said Marko Tiesmaki, head of the Asia-Pacific region for Secure Land Communications at Airbus. “This recent contract shows that they count on us as a trustworthy supplier in that domain and confirms our leading position in this market.”
