Under the contract, Cassidian, an EADS company, will provide the state-of-the-art DXT3c switch with five TETRA base stations (TB3), Network Management Software (NMS) and an Automatic Vehicle Location Service (AVL).

Cassidian has already started deliveries and the system will be integrated by mid 2013, before the planned opening of the first phase of the new metro.

The radio communication system will support train dispatching, operations and management.

“Cassidian is a leading supplier of TETRA communication system for the emerging mass transportation market in India. We are committed to contribute to further developments of secure mission critical communication solutions for public safety in India,” said Peter Gutsmiedl, Cassidian India chief executive.
