Sepura wins major order from Moscow Metro
Moscow Metro is to use Sepura TETRA radio terminals to improve communications across its underground network. This is one of the first projects for underground railways in Russia and the CIS to get the go-ahead. It follows a trial project for the evaluation and solution of technical issues with infrastructure and terminals installed in Moscow subway tunnels. Sepura’s SRH3500 hand-held radio, supplied and supported by Compas-Radio, Sepura’s long-standing distributor for Russia and the CIS, best met the customer’s expectations.
As result, a contract for Sepura SRH3500 terminals was won by Compas-Radio in co-operation with its partner UST-Telecom, the system integrator responsible for the maintenance of an integrated radio communication system on 7 lines of Moscow underground. This system has been implemented to meet the requirements of civil and public safety users.
Moscow Metro operates 12 train services, over 278 km of route length and 171 stations. As one of the world’s most heavily used metro systems, the state-owned carrier transports between 8-9 million passengers on a normal weekday. During peak hours, trains run every 90 seconds on most lines.
The Sepura SRH3500 hand-helds will be used to improve operational communications and safety management across the metro network. Selected for its ability to operate on the government-approved 440 to 473 MHz frequency range-a key requirement for Moscow Metro-the Sepura SRH3500 also incorporates a full Cyrillic language interface.
“Light-weight, versatile and designed for the harshest of public-safety and transport environments, the Sepura SRH3500 was the optimal solution for Moscow Metro” confirms Eugene Labutin, President of Compas-Radio. further corroborates the versatility of Sepura radio products in such a demanding operating environment.
