Hytera Mobilfunk and its partner ADTEL have won an order from Metro Barcelona in Spain to supply a DMR Tier III two-way radio communications system. The metro network in Barcelona covers about 119 kilometres and supports a light-rail fleet of 171 vehicles and approximately 385 million journeys per year.
Working in close co-operation with ADTEL, the company will install 58 base stations throughout the metro system in the coming year. Hytera is also supplying around 1,000 PD785 hand portable and MD785 mobile radios, along with the radio infrastructure.
The DMR Tier III type of trunked radio is designed especially for sophisticated voice transmission and dispatcher communication. Apart from the fully IP-based system architecture and centralized networking, Hytera DMR Trunking is based on a modular design of the system components for ease of installation and maintenance.
“Our professional and perfect marketing efforts and the ideal selection of the right project partners were the key to our success in winning this significant metro reference project,” declared Marco Martinato, Vice President Sales at Hytera Mobilfunk.
