Cobham Wireless Supplies TETRA Gear for Beijing Metro Line
Wednesday, March 28, 2018 | Comments

Cobham Wireless delivered a critical communications system on Beijing’s New Airport metro line.

Beijing’s New Airport line incorporates an 800 MHz TETRA system that provides essential communications for the metro line’s train drivers. Previous deployments have included both this system and a 350 MHz TETRA public-safety communications system.

Cobham Wireless’ TETRA products can extend the reach of a base station into underground environments. The company has provided a cost-effective solution to delivering coverage throughout China’s metro system.

“Deploying connectivity on the 100th metro line in China is a landmark moment for Cobham Wireless,” said Bret Li, sales manager, China, Cobham Wireless. “China presents a unique set of challenges for comms technology; temperatures can soar to 50 degrees in the summer and plunge to minus 30 in the winter. To guarantee passenger and driver safety, equipment must be robust and reliable, and able to run 24/7 throughout the year. Cobham Wireless’ repeaters can withstand this tough environment, and thanks to this latest deployment, we’ll be helping to ensure the safety of the 12 million or so passengers which use Beijing’s metro daily.”

Cobham Wireless’ TETRA products are now providing coverage for driver and public-safety communications across an estimated 77 percent of China’s metro system. Since 2005, the company’s technology has been installed on metro lines across 30 cities in mainland China.
