Nokia has been selected to supply Consortium Techint Dycasa UTE with communications networks for the Buenos Aires Metro line H extension in Argentina. 

The IP/MPLS network will support various operational and passenger services on Metro line H. Around 100,000 passengers a day use the metro line, which connects to several other rail lines.

Nokia’s network suite consists of data transmission infrastructure, operational telephony, radio communications (TETRA), passenger information display, PA systems, CCTV.

Consortium Techint Dycasa UTE is fully responsible for the expansion.

"Deployment of an IP-based network in Buenos Aires metro system will support a wide range of operational and passenger services."

The first phase of expansion will extend Metro line H from 5.5km to 7.7km and create three new stops.

Built with the Nokia 7705 Service Aggregation Router (SAR), an internet protocol/multi-protocol label switching (IP/MPLS) router, the data transmission infrastructure is managed by the company's 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM) system.

The SAR provides support for services such as mission-critical Tetra radio communication and interconnecting the Tetra base stations along the line.

As part of the contract, Nokia is also supplying and integrating components such as LAN switches, IP/PBX, intelligent billboards, and PA/GA from third-parties.

In addition, the company is providing project management, engineering, design, supply, commissioning, and integration testing and support services.

Nokia global enterprise and public sector LATAM sales head Javier Rey said: "The deployment of an IP-based network in the Buenos Aires metro system will support a wide range of both operational and passenger services for metro users in Argentina's largest city.

“Nokia has an extensive history working with railway operators, both freight and passenger, to improve the safety and efficiency of their operations, and we look forward to participating in a variety of such modernisation efforts throughout Latin America."
