Motorola to supply radio communications system for Klang Valley MRT

As a technology partner to the APLG consortium, Motorola Solutions will deliver a highly secure and reliable TETRA two-way radio communications network for Malaysia’s Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) line.
Motorola Solutions will supply, design and install the complete, digital two-way radio communications network for the new MRT line, including more than 500 TETRA radio devices and base stations.
The 51 kilometre SBK line comprises 31 stations including seven underground stations. It is part of an integrated mobility project that will provide seamless urban transportation for 1.2 million residents in the Greater Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley region. The landmark rail modernisation project will bring significant benefits to Malaysia, including greatly improved transport services while reducing traffic congestion in the Greater Kuala Lumpur metropolitan area.
“Cooperating with Motorola Solutions enables our companies to combine their local and global expertise. Working together, we will deliver a highly-customised communication system providing timely and secure transportation services for the Malaysian public,” Byung Il Park, Project Director for the APLG consortium, said.
