PUNE: Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation Limited (Maha Metro) has selected DAMM TETRA based radio communication system for the Pune Metro Rail Project. The system comprises a combination of high-power DAMM Indoor Systems, Consort Digital Train Radio Systems and Sepura TETRA handheld and mobile radios.
The high-power DAMM Indoor System ensures sufficient coverage for the entire railway, above and below ground, while the distributed architecture, open API and modular configuration provide a customized solution that fully meets the customer’s needs.
According to Arpit Kumar Srivastava, Head (Direct Sales) at Consort Digital, “Key to the success of projects like this is the distributed architecture in the DAMM TetraFlex® system, which allows us to implement a phased commissioning of the radio system, even if the control centres are not fully ready and equipped”.
According to DAMM Regional Director Carsten Laursen, “Winning this project once again bears witness to the strength of our DAMM System Partner programme and to what can be achieved through close collaboration”.
This system will be used to provide radio communication to the under-construction Line-1 (Purple Line) and Line-2 (Aqua Line) of Pune Metro consisting route length of 33 km along with 34 cabs, 29 stations and two depots.
Both lines are expected to become operational by the end of this year with expected daily ridership of 6 lakhs commuters.
