Solving the Challenges of Railway Communications
The more people use rail and metro systems, the greater the need for robust and reliable railway communications becomes.
DAMM® Cellular Systems A/S has through its partner Consort Digital been awarded the contract to provide TETRA based mission-critical radio communication system for the second phase of Mumbai Monorail between Wadala Depot and Gadge Maharaj Chowk.
The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has awarded India’s first Monorail Project in Mumbai, to a joint consortium between SCOMI and L&T. The Mumbai Monorail Project will have 2 lines and cover 19 Km with 17 stations when Phase II is completed. Consort Digital is an established TETRA system integrator, and will be responsible for supply, installation, integration and commissioning of the entire project.
DAMM® will supply a future-proof, state-of-art TetraFlex® solution to meet the requirements of the customer for a feature rich, reliable and safe communication system. The DAMM® TetraFlex® solution is a completely IP based solution with distributed architecture that provides the much needed fault tolerance to communication networks, such as the one being installed for the Mumbai Monorail. The DAMM® TetraFlex® solution is integrated to the signaling system, public announcement system, onboard train communication system, telephony system and centralized recording system.
Kjeld Pharao, CEO of DAMM® states:
“We are proud to continue the success in India with our experienced and trusted Partner, Consort Digital. Key to our successful rail solution is our decentralized architecture, being interconnected on pure IP based backbone.”
Devdarsh Jain, Director Marketing, Consort Digital:
“Award of Phase II contract demonstrates the successful and reliable operation of the DAMM® solution deployed for the first phase since 2012. The project will be completed in record time due to modularity and ease of deployment of the DAMM Outdoor base stations.”
The Mumbai Monorail Project was proposed by the MMRDA with an objective, to support public rapid transit system such as suburban rail system and metro rail system. Scomi Engineering Bhd and its consortium partner Larsen & Toubro secured the Mumbai Monorail Project from MMRDA. The first 20-Km corridor of the monorail system is set to act as a feeder service to connect the mass transport systems like the existing suburban rail and the upcoming metro rail in the city. This complementing public transportation system is likely to de-congest the traffic in the area, improve connectivity and reduce travel time for commuters.
The Mumbai monorail project is a 19 Km route between Chembur and Gadge Maharaj Chowk with one central depot. Each monorail with four coaches will have a capacity to accommodate about 600 passengers thereby carrying nearly three hundred thousand commuters on a daily basis in the proposed route.
