Teltrobnic at Russian Communications sector fair

Teltronic presented its technology at the largest Fair of the Communications Sector that is held in Russia

  • The TETRA technology developed by Teltronic is present in more than 30 countries all over the world.
  • Recently the second phase of the project has been signed to equip the Russian railway line with TETRA infrastructure, representing an investment of 12 million euros.

Zaragoza, May 2006.- Teltronic was present at Expocomm Moscow for the sixth consecutive year. This fair, which is the most important in the sector on a worldwide level, was held from 10 to 13 May.

At the Teltronic stand (3B06), located in the Spanish pavilion, information was offered about the TETRA product range, developed by the company, which provides services within communication networks installed in more than 30 countries all over the world. The new portable equipment, TETRA HTT-500, which has been placed on the market this very year and which has represented a revolution for emergency communications, was also presented at this fair.

In May 2005, Teltronic was awarded the contract to supply the TETRA infrastructure for the Russian railway line, Moscow – St. Petersburg. The system comprises 51 Base Stations, each one with 4 bearers, 2 central nodes with redundancy and several gateways to other local systems. Two Russian companies participate in the Teltronic project, Globalsvyaz and Microtest, the latter assembling and supplying the system in Russia. Interfaces with customer requirements have been developed, as well as a complex and strict monitoring system under SORM specifications, which has been developed and implemented by Teltronic and its associates in the project. The system is also integrated within the existing radiocommunication networks in the Russian railway.

The Russian railway is the first in the world to have made the decision to adopt TETRA after tests also performed with GSM-R technology, and the Moscow – St. Petersburg line, which is 800 kilometres long, will enter into operation very shortly.

The first project phase included the two central nodes and 19 base stations. Currently the second phase has been signed, which includes another 500 kilometres, making a total of 800 kilometres with an investment of 12 million euros. A total of 32 base stations are going to be placed in this second phase.

The TETRA technology is going to provide the Russian railway with greater power, it will improve the management of emergencies or critical situations and will offer greater quality in communications.
