ZTE’s new generation SDR-based GSM-R system has passed European Integrated Radio Enhanced Network (EIRENE) specifications and received a certification from TÜV Rheinland, a global technical, safety and certification service provider. GSM-R, based on the GSM standards, provides industry-leading technology for precise railway scheduling and communications. Currently, ZTE provides BSCs, BTSs and engineering services for rail operators in Southwest China.
With the new Nanning Railway contract, ZTE will deploy its GSM-R technology on a key transport link in Southwest China. The Nanning Railway section will include six rail lines that support train speeds exceeding 200km/h, and enhance China’s high-speed rail links with countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
“This GSM-R contract strengthens the partnership between ZTE and Nanning Railway Bureau,” said ZTE Vice President Li Jian. “ZTE’s GSM-R system can overcome the wireless communication challenges in mountainous and undulating terrains, and ensure robust network connections. We will work closely with Nanning Railway Bureau to help our client fulfill their role as a key regional transport hub linking major international cities.”
