Metro line operators in Europe, Middle East and China get the benefits from good radio coverage and reliable communication products which are integrated into metro traffic management systems.
Airbus Defence and Space has built more than 40 TETRA networks for metro line operators in the following cities: Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Shenyang, Zhengzhou, Qingdao, Nanjing, Ningbo, Fuzhou, Wuhan.
Shenzhen Metro network is the first city in China where all TETRA radio communication systems from all metro lines are interconnected. Shenzhen now has 5 metro lines operational, spanning around 178 km. Every day, the metro lines serve around 2 million passengers.
The metro operator MRT Corporation has used a TETRA radio communication solution from Airbus Defence and Space for more than 4 years.
Many countries in Europe have built natiowide authority TETRA or Tetrapol networks. These public safety networks cover many critical underground areas such as metro stations.
In addition, many public urban transport companies have set up their own communication networks in metro lines and underground areas.
Every year, Régie Autonome des Transport Parisiens (RATP) serves around 2.6 billion travels in metro, trams and buses in the Paris region. RATP has used their own TETRA network more than 10 years.
Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) is the leading municipal public transport company in Germany. Special indoor location solution has been integrated into their TETRA network.
