Project to improve operational services and reinforce security control

Alstom, Huawei complete LTE 4G pilot project for metros

DUBAI, July 2, 2015

Leader in the world of power generation Alstom and information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider Huawei have completed a pilot project to develop a Long Term Evolution (LTE) 4G multi-service broadband radio networking technology for metros.

The project was launched in the frame of a memorandum of understanding signed in April last year between telecommunications equipment producer Huawei, which supplied the LTE network, and Alstom which provided the train set and onboard signalling equipment, said a statement.

Alstom is the first rail manufacturer to integrate LTE 4G in its signalling solution, it said.

LTE technology enables a single wireless communication system supporting mission critical  voice trunking and video communications, communication-based train control (CBTC) and broadband data applications such as passenger information systems and live streaming of CCTV images.

It improves operational services, reinforces security control and enables remote diagnostic of the onboard equipment while reducing operational costs.

Alstom has integrated the LTE technology and carried out static and dynamic tests on the metro at its Valenciennes site in France.

LTE 4G technology enhances Alstom’s world-leading CBTC solution Urbalis that equipped cities all over the world, representing 25 per cent of CBTC solutions deployed worldwide. - TradeArabia News Service
