Hytera signed a contract with Trensurb, the urban trains company of Porto Alegre, to provide a TETRA communications system to the metro of the capital city of the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

Teltronic Brazil, a subsidiary of Hytera, will deploy the system composed of one main and one redundant controller, six base stations, 80 train-borne radios, and an integrated command-and-control solution. The new system will modernize voice and data communications along the metro lines, replacing the legacy analog system.

The network fully meets the requirements of ANATEL, the Brazilian national telecommunications agency, and more functionalities, such as GPS positioning, transmission of data messages, and secure and efficient communications, are made available.

"Users of the new system will benefit from higher quality calls, new functionality of both voice and data on a single system, improved security for all calls, GPS location with everything being constantly monitored, recorded and updated," said Paulo Ferrão, vice general manager of Hytera Brazil and general director of Teltronic Brazil.

Trensurb is linked to the Ministry of Regional Development and operates in the segment of urban and metropolitan passenger transport with a line of urban trains with extension of 43.8 kilometers, in the north axis of the metropolitan region of Porto Alegre, with 22 stations and a fleet of 40 trains. The agency also operates the first line of the Automated People Mover (APM) technology, in commercial operation, connecting Trensurb Airport Station to Terminal 1 of Salgado Filho International Airport.
