Mauritius Metro Deploys TETRA Network
Wednesday, May 20, 2020 | Comments

Sepura partner Consort Digital deployed a complete communications solution to the island of Mauritius, providing voice and data communications via Sepura TETRA radios to the new Mauritius Metro Express.

The initial 13-kilometer section of the island’s new line between Port Luis and Rose Hill is operational, with the second phase to Curepipe on course to be completed in 2021. In its early stages the service is expected to move 25,000 people a day, with this number increasing to between 55,000 and 60,000 when the line is completed.

Consort Digital worked with Sepura and infrastructure supplier Damm Cellular Systems to provide a complete communications solutions for the whole network, covering everyday tasks such as maintenance, cleaning and staff resources while also benefitting from TETRA’s ability to enable emergency calls as a priority when the need arises.

The fleet vehicles are equipped with Sepura TETRA mobile radios, enabling both voice and data communications back to the control center. Each vehicle contains an onboard AVL solution that communicates the vehicle location through the radio, enabling remote signaling and train control.

There are expansion plans in place for the Metro line, although there is not a set date to start construction on these. The TETRA network can be scaled up to increase the numbers of radio users. This will be vital to keep managing staff safety while increasing efficiency of operations.
