Geo-redundant GSM-R core networks and base stations implemented
More and more parts of the European railway network are becoming part of the standardised ETCS safety system. Since the end of June 2014, two important sections in the Czech Republic are now fully equipped with GSM-R technology.
It’s the railway sections Lanžhot (CZ) – Kúty (SK) and Břeclav (CZ) – Hohenau (A).
Kapsch CarrierCom, an Austrian supplier of radio communication systems for railway operators around the world, equipped the two routes with GSM-R (GSM for railways) technology. This is a further contribution for standardised signaling, control and train safety system on Europe’s railway network. The two projects consisted of the implementation of geo-redundant GSM-R core networks and base stations and were recently finalised in time and on budget.
The section between Břeclav (CZ) and Hohenau (A) is 15 kilometers long and extends further into Austria. It is an important passenger railway connection to Austria’s capital Vienna and its second largest city Graz.
Kapsch implemented the geo-redundant GSM-R core network and one additional base station (BTS) on that route. Optic cabling is being used for transmission of signals. For the 15 km route between Lanžhot (CZ) and Kúty (SK) which then heads towards Hungary – an essential route for passenger traffic to Bratislava (SK) and to the South, e.g. to Budapest (H) – the same setup was applied.
