Thursday 14 June: Noon-12.30pm
Ali Shamsizadeh — Senior Project Manager, MCS Digital
This presentation will include case studies from around the world and Australia.
Globally, the digital TETRA Voice and Data technology has emerged as the most used radio standard for transportation. It provides efficient digital communications that meets railway service availability and safety expectations. TETRA’s functionality, reliability, safety and security are key to critical railway communication and signalling in any rail environment, including driverless trains, and TETRA can be further complemented with a Broadband radio access layer.
In Australia TETRA Rail include long haul freight services of FMG Rail, Roy Hill, Aurizon and Light Rail services NW Rail (Sydney), Sydney Light Rail and the Gold Coast Light Rail services. TETRA’s cutting-edge solution leverages the power of the technology that tackles the daily operational challenges and the high long-term capital costs of long haul rail, urban, metro and light rail networks.
The Australasian TETRA and Critical Communications Forum is a chapter of the international Critical Communication Association (TCCA). The TCCA has 150 members globally in 34 countries promoting and supporting an open multi-vendor market that addresses the need for standardised mission critical such as TETRA narrow band/wideband (TEDS) technologies and development of mission critical mobile LTE broadband technologies.
