Information and communications technology solutions provider Huawei has launched the first urban rail transportation solution featuring enterprise LTE (eLTE) for Zhengzhou Metro in China.
The solution features anti-interference technologies, passenger information system, closed-circuit television, vehicle-mounted video surveillance, communication-based train control, and broadband trunking. In addition, the solution also features bilateral radio transmission channels for train-to-ground voice, data, and video transmissions.
Huawei marketing and solutions department president Patrick Zhang said: "The traditional metro communication platform with segregated transmission networks can no longer meet the requirements of an evolving metro industry.
"With the increasing reliance on wireless communication network in the rail transportation industry, metro operators are looking for a rail transportation solution that can simultaneously carry out a number of application management services, as well as data, voice and video transmissions.
"With Huawei’s highly mobile eLTE urban rail transportation solution, Zhengzhou Metro is able to enhance quality of service across multiple levels of operations, achieving safe operation, agile dispatching and convenience for passengers."
Zhengzhou Metro will deploy the project on its Line 1 to resolve problems caused by disconnected communication networks between train and ground communication systems, interference, and service intermittence.
A Zhengzhou Metro representative said: "Zhengzhou Metro and Huawei will strengthen our collaboration in the technological advancement of the rail transportation industry, contributing to the development of a fully modernised and innovative metro line in China."
