Bilbao metro Line L3

SPAIN: CAF Signalling has certified the integration of its communications-based train control platform with Teltronic’s eNebula LTE infrastructure and RTP-800 onboard terminal, following laboratory tests and field testing on Bilbao metro Line 3.

‘In the face of the shortcomings and drawbacks of the wireless systems currently used in signalling applications, such as wi-fi, LTE technology provides an end-to-end solution that combines trackside infrastructure and onboard equipment, and which meets both the requirements of railway signalling data management and compliance with railway standards’, said Teltronic’s director of Transport Business Development, Felipe Sanjuán.

Teltronic said the project may also be applicable to ETCS or PTC signalling systems.
