Malux Finland delivered first GSM-R phones and customised accessory solutions to Finnish Railways during 2010 GSM-R Network utilisation in Finland. Malux Finland delivered Sagem GSM-R phones and Kapsch GSM-R Cab Radio solutions to Finnish Railways. Malux developed TrainTalk™ system integration between cab radio and handheld GSM-R phone that still brings value to global railway customers.
