Thailand’s monorail projects’ aim is to implement state-of-the-art signalling and telecommunication technologies, to further improve safety and passenger throughput of these important new transit lines.
Huawei will take charge of design and integration of a number of information and communications technology (ICT) rail solutions such as IP/MPLS multi-services bearer network, Intelligent Video Surveillance System (IVS), Digital Radio System (DRS), OA network, Master Clock System (MCS), Public Information Display System (PIDS), Public Address System (PAS) and Telephone System.
President for Huawei Enterprise Business Group Transportation Business Dept. Eman Liu states, ”Our Metro & light rail solution for the Pink and Yellow Lines perfectly addresses rail communication demands on security, reliability and efficiency using our state-of-the-art technologies successfully implemented in projects across more than 120 lines on five continents. With our extensive experience in providing communication solutions to the mass transit market we are keen to further extend our partnership with Bombardier, helping to maintain a safe, reliable and efficient service for the Pink and Yellow Lines”.
Bombardier Transportation is delivering the turnkey electrical & mechanical system for the two monorail lines, including 72 four-car BOMBARDIER INNOVIA Monorail 300 trains equipped with BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 650 communications-based signalling system.
Operating in the city’s northern and eastern areas, the monorails will integrate with the existing transportation network and run at speeds up to 80 km/h with a maximum capacity of over 28,000 passengers per-hour, per-direction.
