Delivery of TETRA communications systems to metro lines in China will be carried out by Airbus.

The company has signed two new contracts which will see it providing TETRA technology for metro line 11 in Wuhan and metro line 2 in Fuzhou.

The metro lines are expected to enter operation in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

“China’s transportation market for radiocommunication is growing significantly and we have positioned ourselves successfully,” Airbus Head of Sales and Program Delivery for the Middle East and Asia-Pacific of Secure Land Communications Selim Bouri said.

The communication system for the metro line in Wuhan, with a total length of nearly 32 kilometres, will consist of one TETRA switch, 25 TB3 base stations, 670 TH1n and 126 TMR880i radios. Wuhan, the most populous city of central China, is extending its metro network. Metro line 11 will be the city’s fifth line with a TETRA radio system from Airbus.

In Fuzhou, Airbus will provide 24 TB3 base stations, 400 TH1n as well as 102 TMR880i radios. The system will cover a total length of nearly 31 kilometres.

The new system for Fuzhou metro line 2 will share the switch centre with line 1, which was put into operation at the end of 2016.
