High-speed train upgrade

Friday, 27 June, 2008

Andrew, the CommScope division, has won a multi-year contract for communications systems that will provide improved wireless coverage inside Deutsche Bahn AG's high-speed train ICE in Germany.

In-train repeaters will be installed in all 250 ICE train sets covering nearly 1500 carriages — the majority of the ICE fleet — that will feature high-quality, high-availability mobile telephony signal coverage for passengers and official rail communications.

The project is scheduled for completion in 2010 and is a common project between Deutsche Bahn and the German mobile network operators T-Mobile, Vodafone, the E-Plus Group and O2.

The repeater system will support five separate GSM networks, covering the four operators, plus the rail system's communications network, in the GSM-900, 1800 and R bands.
