Hytera TETRA rolled out on Brazil metro

Hytera has signed a contract with TRENSURB that will see it provide TETRA for the Porto Alegre Metro in Brazil.

The TETRA communications system will be provided and deployed by Teltronic Brazil, a subsidiary of Hytera. The system is based on the Teltronic Nebula System, composed of one main controller and one redundant, six base stations, eighty train borne radios, and a CeCoCo integrated command and control solution.

The new system will modernise voice and data communication along the metro lines, replacing the legacy analog system. It fully meets the requirements of ANATEL, Brazilian National Telecommunications Agency, and more functionalities are made available, such as GPS positioning, transmission of data messages, and secure and efficient communication.

“Users of the new system will benefit from higher quality calls, new functionality of both voice and data on a single system, improved security for all calls, GPS location with everything being constantly monitored, recorded and updated,” said Paulo Ferrão, Vice General Manager of Hytera Brazil and General Director of Teltronic Brazil.

The Urban Trains Company of Porto Alegre S/A - TRENSURB is linked to the Ministry of Regional Development. It operates in the segment of urban and metropolitan passenger transport with a line of Urban Trains with extension of 43.8 kilometres, in the north axis of the Metropolitan Region of Porto Alegre, with 22 stations and a fleet of 40 trains. It also operates the first line of the Automated People Mover (APM) technology, in commercial operation, connecting Trensurb Airport Station (integrated with the train) to Terminal 1 of Salgado Filho International Airport (Salgado Filho Station).
