Maha Metro chooses DAMM TetraFlex for rail project

A DAMM TetraFlex radio system has been deployed by Maha Metro Rail Corporation for its Nagpur Metro rail project.

The solution will cover 37 stations and two depots, as well as onboard equipment for 23 three-car trains.

Nagpur Metro is a rapid transit system for the city of Nagpur, India. It is estimated at a cost of US$1.18 billion. Nagpur Metro Phase 1 comprises North-South and East-West corridors totalling 37 km. The first section, covering a distance of 13.5 km from Khapri to Sitabuldi stations, is now operational, with Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, performing the inauguration on 8 March 2019.

The major benefits of the DAMM TetraFlex radio solution for the Nagpur Metro is its decentralised architecture, which ensures that there is no dependency on a central switching equipment for section-wise commissioning and operation of the radio system.

Because the DAMM TetraFlex solution is based on an open ETSI standard, Maha Metro Rail Corporation is also free to choose the devices that best suit its needs rather than being limited to particular brands and models. Through DAMM’s flexible Application Programming Interface it is easy to integrate to other telecom systems such as telephony, external radio network and central voice recording systems. Another benefit is that the solution provides integration to signalling systems.

Consort Digital, regional partner for DAMM Cellular Systems and an established TETRA system integrator, will be responsible for the delivery, project management and execution of the project.

“Nagpur Metro is a really exciting project for us,” said Carsten Laursen, Regional Director at DAMM.

“Once again we have proved the superior quality and flexibility of our solution in the rail industry. With the professional work provided by Consort Digital we have also yet again demonstrated the strength of our systems partner network, which is core to our business.”
