TTC TETRA network expanded by Sepura

Tuesday, 01 November, 2016

The TETRA network of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) will be expanded by PowerTrunk, part of the Sepura Group.

Existing infrastructure was deployed by Sepura in 2013, providing voice and data services above and below ground for the metro and bus and tram networks. This contract will build on these services.

“This project will address TTC’s evolving operational requirements while making a vital contribution to the safe transportation of millions of passengers,” said David Torres, PowerTrunk senior VP of sales.

Under the first phase of the expansion, Sepura supplied 1000 hand-portable and 600 mobile radios to improve communications across the network, including Wheel-Trans vehicles which are now fully operational on TETRA.

The next phase will see the deployment of a number of base stations and additional carriers to support TTC’s computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and automatic vehicle location (AVL) project, currently being rolled out across the metro network.

A further 1000 hand-portable radios have been ordered to expand communication with metro staff and eventually replace some analog data communications systems.
