Hytera Mobilfunk has been awarded a contract by ASK NT, a Kazakhstan based company specializing in secure communications, to supply a fully digital TETRA radio communication system for the Kazakhstan Temir Zholy (KTZ) – the Kazakstan State Railway organisation.
The ACCESSNET®-T IP TETRA radio system developed by Hytera Mobilfunk will be used for the Kandyagash – Nikaltau railway line in the north of the province of Aktobe (Oblast Aktjubinskaja) where it will be deployed alongside a 150km length of rail track to replace an existing analogue radio system. The new system will be used for voice communications and data applications for train signalling and telemetry data of trains.
The TETRA infrastructure from Hytera Mobilfunk includes eight base stations, one centralized IP Node for switching and connection to applications, the application interface A-CAPI, and the comprehensive Network Management System (NMS) from Hytera. The project rollout is planned to continue until the end of 2012.
