Monday, June 24, 2019 | Comments

Motorola Solutions was awarded a tender for supplying Israel Railways Co. with a new push-to-talk over cellular (POC) communications solution to improve efficiency and safety of operations.

The company will supply up to 3,000 devices powered with WAVE, Motorola Solutions’ work group communications service, allowing operational communications across the railway’s lines, offices and maintenance and logistical compounds. The solution is set to replace the railway company’s previous communication service Mirs, based on iDEN technology.

According to the contract, Motorola Solutions will supply, install, operate and maintain the POC-based wireless communications system for Israel Railways for three years, with an optional extended period of five years. Hot Mobile will serve as the mobile network carrier.

I understand that they will be using the network provider Hot Mobile. This does not sound like a secure way to go about using a cellular network in this capacity. Israel has many problems on trains and buses. Security here would be essential.
