Teltronic lands comms deal for Brazilian capital's metro network

Transport communications provider Teltronic has been selected to provide a complete communications solution for the Brasilia Metro as part of an ambitious project to modernise and expand the Brazilian capital’s transport network.

The solution provided by Teltronic consists of Nebula TETRA infrastructure, a CeCo-TRANS control centre, RTP-300 onboard equipment, STP9000 hand-portable radios and SRG3900 mobile radios.

Replacing the Metro’s ageing analog system, the upgrade is expected to improve coverage as well as enhance communications between drivers, station staff, the control centre and passengers.

It will cover Line 1, which currently carries 160,000 passengers per day — a figure that is set to increase as a further five passenger stations are added under the expansion project spearheaded by the Metrô-DF operator.

“We are confident that this TETRA system will optimise critical communications within the network, augmenting the security of both our passengers and our employees,” said Daniela Diniz, director of the technical board of directors for Metrô-DF.

Teltronic said the the tailor-made solution leverages the power of TETRA technology to tackle Brasilia Metro’s daily operational challenges, making a “vital contribution to the safe transportation of millions of passengers”.

Part of the Sepura Group, Teltronic offers critical communication solutions for the transportation, public safety, utilities and industrial sectors based on TETRA, P25 and LTE technologies.
