Wireless coverage solutions for railways

COMLAB provides a comprehensive range of wireless coverage solutions. COMLAB’s repeater systems are suitable for various applications such as railway and metro line tunnels, road tunnels, buildings and in-train coverage. Thanks to many international contracts, we are one of the market leaders in the railways sector.

The system ensures that radio signals can be received inside their areas of use. Radio signals are not able to penetrate rock strata and certain strongly insulated areas, for instance. Therefore, the external antennas pick up the provider signals and the system amplifies and distributes them via leaky feeder cables or internal antennas.

Modular radio systems for the rail industry

COMLAB’s systems consist of modular components that can be easily integrated and perfectly adapted to the client’s requirements. This modularity also facilitates subsequent expansion and retrofitting.

Mobile radio services and digital audio broadcasting

COMLAB supplies mobile radio services, intercom facilities for the police, DAB, VHF and GSM-R technologies, analogue and digital radio for the emergency services, as well as in-tunnel GSM services for passenger mobile communications. Various technologies can be combined in a single system.

Engineering consultations for rail radio solutions

COMLAB overlooks every stage of the development, production and implementation processes of its radio systems. Qualified and experienced graduate engineers guarantee innovative engineering, and are available to advise clients, design systems and develop new components.

COMLAB’s specialists provide clients with comprehensive solutions that are specifically designed for their needs.
