Siemens has selected Teltronic, part of the Sepura Group, to supply, install and commission a video surveillance solution for part of the Monterrey Metro system in Mexico. The deal follows an earlier contract for the deployment of a Teltronic TETRA critical communications system within the Metro.
Monterrey, the main city of the State of Nuevo León, is finalising the successful construction of Line 3 within its rapid transit system, referred to as Sistema de Transporte Colectivo Metrorrey. Line 3 will have 7.4 km of double tracks, with electric trains operating on 6.5 km of elevated structure and 0.9 km of tunnels.
Siemens is responsible for implementing the signalling, telecommunications and control systems of the metro line, ahead of completion next year.
An integrated IP video surveillance system will provide high-quality video throughout Line 3’s eight stations, as well as an additional station in Line 2. The system will enable remote real-time monitoring, as well as recording and long-term storage of all video footage. Teltronic will also supply the solutions and applications required within the Metrorrey command and control centre.
Felipe Sanjuan Pasamar, Business Development Director for Transportation Systems, commented: “This extension to Metrorrey’s existing TETRA system provides a complete, integrated solution, combining radio solutions and CCTV, and demonstrates our continued ability to enhance passenger safety through the provision of effective subsystems and applications.
“This agreement also reinforces the close collaboration between Siemens and Teltronic in the transportation market, acting yet again as technical partner for the operation of essential systems in mass transit infrastructures.”
