Monday, December 07, 2020 | Comments

Airbus signed seven new contracts to provide secure communications technology and infrastructures to metro lines in four different cities in China.

The cities of Fuzhou, Zhengzhou, Chongqing and Hefei selected Airbus to provide a secure and reliable TETRA communications system and equipment such as TB3 base stations, TMR880i mobile radios, TH9 terminals and Airbus TETRA Taira servers.

For Fuzhou, the capital of the Fujian province, Airbus will provide a TETRA communications system and equipment to cover the city’s metro line five. Fuzhou metro lines one and two are already equipped with Airbus TETRA communication systems, respectively in operation since 2016 and 2019. In addition, Airbus deploys the TETRA communication system for Fuzhou metro line six, which is planned to be put in operation in 2021.

Airbus will also provide three new metro lines in Zhengzhou city (lines three, six and 10) with TETRA systems composed of a Taira server, TB3 base stations, handheld TH9 and TH1n terminals, and TMR880i mobile radios. Five operating metro lines (lines one, two, five, 14 and the Chengjiao line) of the Henan Province capital already benefit from Airbus TETRA systems that ensure the metro lines’ daily operations.

TETRA technology and equipment will also be implemented for Chongqing city metro line nine, as well as Hefei’s metro lines four and five, in addition to the existing lines which already use Airbus secure communications technology.

“Despite the unprecedented times we are all facing with the global pandemic, the metro market in China continues to flourish,” said Marko Tiesmaki, head of the Asia-Pacific region for Secure Land Communications at Airbus. “We are glad to see that Chinese cities are turning to our solutions to ensure the safety of their metro lines. Since they serve millions of passengers every year, they need performant communication solutions.”
