Nagpur Metro deploys DAMM TetraFlex Radio System; begins passenger service
Maha Metro Rail Corporation has deployed a DAMM TetraFlex® radio solution for its flagship Nagpur Metro Rail project. The solution is provided for a total of 37 stations and two depots, as well as onboard equipment for 23 three-car trains.
Nagpur Metro is a rapid transit system for the city of Nagpur, India. It is estimated at a cost of 1.18 billion USD. Nagpur Metro Phase 1 comprises of North-South and East-West corridors totalling 37 km. The first section, covering a distance of 13.5 km from Khapri to Sitabuldi stations, is now operational, with Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, performing the inauguration on 8 March 2019.
The major benefits of the DAMM TetraFlex radio solution for the Nagpur Metro is its decentralized architecture, which ensures that there is no dependency on a central switching equipment for section-wise commissioning and operation of the radio system.
Because the DAMM TetraFlex solution is based on an open ETSI standard, Maha Metro Rail Corporation is also free to choose the devices that best suit its needs rather than being limited to particular brands and models. Through DAMM’s flexible Application Programming Interface it is easy to integrate to other telecom systems such as telephony, external radio network and central voice recording systems. Another benefit is that the solution provides integration to signalling systems.
Superior technology and strong partnerships
Consort Digital, regional partner for DAMM Cellular Systems and an established TETRA system integrator, will be responsible for the delivery, project management and execution of the project.
‘Nagpur Metro is a really exciting project for us,’ says Carsten Laursen, Regional Director at DAMM, and continues, ‘Once again we have proved the superior quality and flexibility of our solution in the rail industry. With the professional work provided by Consort Digital we have also yet again demonstrated the strength of our systems partner network, which is core to our business’, he concludes.
