Hytera, a provider of Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) solutions, signed a USD 30 million contract to provide the entire integrated communication solutions with systems, equipment, terminals and services for Shenzhen Metro Line 12.
The company will install and commission a complete 800M TETRA digital trunking solution including DIB R5 base stations, on-board mobile radios and handheld radios, as well as a 400M PDT station management system, which enables effective communication, dispatching and voice recording across the control center, train drivers, and station operation staff.
In the last few years, the Shenzhen-based company has provided its solutions for five Shenzhen Metro lines (Line 6, 7, 9, 10 and 11) including its TETRA and PDT on-board systems and a host of value-added services of secure radio communications to improve dispatching and operation efficiency.
Lines 7, 9, and 11 cover 107 km with 68 stations, which each plays an important role in the public transport of Shenzhen’s urban districts. Line 11, in particular, serves as both the airport line and the Guangzhou-Shenzhen intercity rail line.
As the first metro lines with full coverage of 5G signals in China, Lines 6 and 10 cover a length of 78.7 km with 47 stations, including the busiest metro interchange stations in Shenzhen. The objective is to cover as wide an area as possible and also provide easy connections to other metro lines, railway stations and surrounding cities.
Hytera says that it has applied both 800M TETRA solution and 400M PDT solution to provide reliable voice and data communication across control centers, station operators, train drivers and maintenance personnel, allowing individual and group voice calls with on-board terminals and handheld radios.
These solutions have improved both the management for the metro system operators as well as the services offered to the public.
The company has previously delivered its communication solutions for more than 10 cities in China to support the urban transport system.
