INDIA: Alstom has awarded Teltronic a contract to supply and integrate onboard communications equipment, radio terminals and control centre technology for the Delhi – Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System.

The Spanish supplier said the order demonstrates the validity of its critical broadband applications and supporting infrastructure defined by the 3GPP standard, with provision for a smooth transition to the Future Railway Mobile Communication System.

Teltronic’s CeCoCo control centre architecture will have 10 operator stations. Its geographic information system will provide real-time visualisation of the location of terminals and trains, and will be integrated with the train management system and will also allow communications with the public address and intercom systems.

The Alstom EMU fleet now being produced for RRTS will be equipped with an RTP-800 onboard unit in each cab, with RCC-3000 touchscreen control console. This will be integrated with the public address and intercom systems and with the Train Control & Management System, and connected to the Alstom NetBox mobile router managing the train-to-ground connectivity.

Teltronic will also supply more than 600 LTE desktop and rugged portable terminals for use by operational and maintenance staff.
