Sepura radios for Glasgow subway

The Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) has selected Sepura TETRA radios for its digital communications requirements in the Glasgow Subway.

The new digital solution saw a close collaboration between several of Sepura’s solutions partners. Arqiva was responsible for the train radio and the communication control systems, Schnoor from Germany delivered a special interface to enable switching between calls and public address announcements in the train, while Zetron, provided the technology for the touch-screen panels in the control room.

Sepura’s SRH terminals are used by operations (railway line and depot supervisors), station and maintenance staff. Sepura’s SRG mobile terminals have been installed inside the trains; these are mounted in a cradle inside each cab and interface with all the other applications within the cab.

All drivers have also been supplied with a hand-held TETRA radio to be
able to communicate with the control centre for normal operational requirements or incidents which take them on track or ‘out of cab’.
