Teltronic to equip Delhi-Meerut RRTS with Mission Critical Services MCX

11 October 2022

Alstom has selected Teltronic to supply and integrate the on-board equipment, radio terminals and control centre solution that will deliver Mission Critical Services MCX (MCPTT & MCData) for the Delhi to Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS), a high-speed commuter rail that will, once construction is completed, link these two Indian cities via an 82km rail corridor.

This project demonstrates the validity of Teltronic’s communication solutions over MCX (critical broadband communications applications and the infrastructure that supports them) defined by the 3GPP standard; a technology that will allow the line operator a smooth transition to FRMCS (Future Rail Mobile Communication System) in the future.

“This project is a clear demonstration that our solutions for railway environments comply with the 3GPP standard for MCX services,” said Felipe Sanjuán, transport business development director. “Teltronic reaffirms its commitment to standards as a reference framework and after a clear target to R&D to evolve our solutions to the technologies of the future, we are proud that Alstom has selected us and that we can demonstrate that Teltronic will continue to play a key role in private communications.”

Teltronic will provide its control centre solution, CeCoCo, with ten operator stations. The onboard communications management platform is based on 3GPP MCX and connected to third party MCX server. It incorporates a Geographic Information System (GIS) which enables real-time visualisation of the location of terminals and trains and will be integrated with the Train Management System. It will also allow communications with the public address and intercom systems.

Teltronic will also equip the trains with its on-board solution, which consists of an RTP-800 on-board unit in each cabin, RCC-3000 touchscreen control console and audio accessories that will be integrated with the public address and intercom systems on the train, and with the TCMS (Train Control & Management System). The Teltronic onboard units will be connected to the Alstom NetBox mobile router managing the train-to-ground connectivity for all services.

Teltronic will supply more than 600 LTE terminals, both desktops and rugged portable terminals that will be used by the line’s operations and maintenance staff.
