Cas­sid­ian to pro­vide TETRA ra­dio com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tem to Jaipur Metro


Cas­sid­ian, an EADS com­pany, and its In­dian sys­tem in­te­gra­tor part­ner Fib­com In­dia Ltd. have been se­lected to pro­vide dig­i­tal TETRA ra­dio com­mu­ni­ca­tion cov­er­age for the new Jaipur Metro Rail in Ra­jasthan. The TETRA ra­dio com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tem will sup­port train dis­patch­ing, op­er­a­tions and man­age­ment, thus en­sur­ing an ef­fi­cient and safe run­ning of the Jaipur Metro. De­liv­er­ies will be­gin in Novem­ber 2012 and the sys­tem will be in place in time for the planned open­ing of the new metro by mid-2013.

As the sys­tem and tech­nol­ogy sup­plier, Cas­sid­ian will pro­vide sta­teof-the-art DXT3c switch with five TETRA base sta­tions (TB3), a Net­work Man­age­ment Soft­ware (NMS) and an Au­to­matic Ve­hi­cle Lo­ca­tion Ser­vice (AVL). In ad­di­tion, 350 spe­cialised TETRA ra­dios (THR9i & TMR880i) will be de­ployed on the trains. Cas­sid­ian will also be in charge for train­ing and on­site tech­ni­cal sup­port ser­vices and will join forces with the sys­tem in­te­gra­tor, Fib­com In­dia Ltd. to meet the spe­cial needs of metro op­er­a­tions of the Jaipur Metro Rail Cor­po­ra­tion (JMRC).

“This land­mark win has po­si­tioned Cas­sid­ian as a lead­ing sup­plier of TETRA com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tem for the emerg­ing mass trans­porta­tion mar­ket in In­dia. We are com­mit­ted to con­trib­ute to fur­ther de­vel­op­ments of se­cure mis­sion crit­i­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tion so­lu­tions for pub­lic safety in In­dia.” says Peter Gutsmiedl, Cas­sid­ian In­dia CEO.

“We will draw on our wide ex­pe­ri­ence in de­ploy­ing ad­vanced TETRA-based mis­sion crit­i­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tems for metro rail net­works in­ter­na­tion­ally to make the Jaipur Metro project a success. Our team based in In­dia is build­ing lo­cal ex­per­tise in col­lab­o­ra­tion with our part­ners and is de­liv­er­ing cus­tomised TETRA so­lu­tions to our In­dian cus­tomers on time and on bud­get,” adds Ehud Weiz­man, Head of Sales for Mis­sion Crit­i­cal Com­mu­ni­ca­tion So­lu­tions, Pub­lic Safety, In­dian Sub­con­ti­nent.
