Huawei has been selected to lead Turkmenistan’s Buzhun-Serehtyaka and Bereket-Cilmammet integrated railway communications project.
The company will implement its advanced GSM-R solutions on the Buzhun-Serehtyaka and Bereket-Cilmammet railway lines to support technological evolution of the local railway industry.
Huawei had successfully implemented its GSM-R technologies in Turkmenistan’s Turkmenbasy-Ashgabat (east-west) Line and Cilmammet-Buzhun (south-north) Line in 2012.
Turkmenistan has a total of 3,600km of railway lines, but the country’s transportation capacity have been majorly affected by the outdated and aging communications systems.
Huawei Enterprise Wireless GSM-R product line general manager Wu Ling said: "We are looking forward to working with the Turkmenistan Government on the modernisation of the existing railway system. Huawei is committed to innovation and we will continue to optimise our GSM-R solution offerings, providing high-quality customer-centric solutions and services for railway operators around the world."
Huawei’s GSM-R solution will feature the DBS3800 distributed base stations and remote radio units to reduce the impact of antenna feeder loss on radio network coverage.
