GSM-R Solution

As high speed railroad traffic grows, rail companies face many challenges. Trains must be more reliable and cost-effective, plus respond to customer demands for increased mobility and better services. Challenges include:

  • Interoperability between different types of equipment
  • Poor high-speed coverage
  • Inability to easily expand broadband service

The Huawei GSM-R Solution answers these challenges and more.

The Huawei GSM-R Solution is a digital wireless communication system optimized for railroads. It uses proven GSM wireless communication technology and is third-party certified and EIRENE compliant. It is built primarily for train engineers, dispatchers, controllers, and maintenance personnel and provides:

  • Group, multicast, function number, and emergency call services
  • Carrier network capability for train control signals to meet tough requirements for high-speed trains
  • Improved communications and operational efficiency
  • Ability to evolve as requirements change
  • Unparalleled stability and reliability

Major functions include:

High reliability: The solution meets European Train Control System (ETCS) requirements with three levels of reliability policies:

  • Board
  • NE
  • System

The backup network is also 99.9999% reliable.

Professionalism: The solution complies with the latest version of EIRENE specifications and has passed:

  • Third-party certification
  • TUV certification that meets the latest EU regulations
  • Comprehensive IOT tests with devices from other vendors

Evolution: GSM-R will eventually evolve to a higher standard for broadband services, such as video transmission. The International Union of Railways (UIC) says LTE is the technology of the future:

  • The GSM-R Solution supports LTE
  • Huawei’s single-cabinet and single-subrack eCNS300 Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA) platform works with LTE platforms for easy integration and high performance
  • The BTS3900 Base Transceiver Station supports GSM and LTE modes for GSM-R-to-LTE evolution that protects customer investment
