New Delhi, May 20 (UNI) Nokia Siemens Networks today said it has implemented GSM Railways (GSM-R) communications solution under the Mobile Train Radio Communication (MTRC) project for North Central Railways.
The solution will replace earlier communication methods with a single streamlined digital radio system, which carries directly signaling and operational information between the moving train driver, guard and train controller on ground enabling higher speeds, and greater traffic density with improved safety, security and reliability.
''We are very proud to have implemented the first GSM-R based signaling solution in India. GSM-R is the basis on which the future signaling and communication needs of Indian Railways will be built,'' Nokia Siemens Networks, Head, Sub-region India, Michael Kuehner said.
Under this project, Nokia Siemens Networks supplied an end-to-end GSM-R radio solution, including switching, base stations and controllers, cab radios and hand held devices.
The solution has currently been deployed on a 270 kilometer stretch between Mathura and Jhansi under North central railways.
