Trapeze and Würzburger Straßenbahn have partnered to improve mobile radio infrastructure on the public transport system in Würzburg.

In addition to voice communication (radio), the new system is also responsible for the data communication of streetcars and buses. 

Hytera Mobilfunk was the system supplier for the five new DIB-R5 compact base stations. A redundantly designed IP node that provides the software-based routing function centrally in the radio system has created a fail-safe network in Würzburg. The IPN redundancy also works to protect the voice recorder operated within the IP node equipment rack from failures as well.

Application partner Trapeze took over the set-up of the intermodal transport control system (ICTS) over the ACAPI interface provided by Hytera. The ICTS system is responsible for all communication between the control room, trains and buses and therefore the lifeline of all state-of-the-art transport companies.

“We are delighted that Würzburger Straßenbahn GmbH has once again placed its trust in us for this upgrade and we look forward to more positive collaboration in the future,” said Udo Freyberg, project manager at Hytera Mobilfunk.
