Huawei Drives Rail Technology Innovation in the Gulf

Huawei Drives Rail Technology Innovation in the Gulf :Huawei Technologies aims to place passengers at the center of new transformations by emphasizing safety, comfort and reliability as critical components of railway infrastructure.

At a recent event in Riyadh, Huawei Enterprise revealed its latest railway communication solutions, including its GSM-R, metro solution and Long-Term-Evolution (LTE) based technologies, otherwise better known as 4G.

Rabii Ouadi, Head of Business Development, Transportation Solutions at Huawei Enterprise, Middle East and North Africa commented at the event “Within the next 10 years transportation infrastructure in the Middle East and especially Saudi Arabia will dramatically change. According to market studies it is estimated that the worth of the projects railways telecoms systems reach several hundred million dollars. Huawei looks forward to being more involved in helping shape the future of Saudi rail transport.”

At the conference, Huawei’s railway experts demonstrated how 4G technology is set to dramatically enhance passenger experience onboard the train. Another focus was Huawei’s GSM-R solutions, a reliable and secure communication system developed specifically for railways to enable seamless contact between train drivers and control dispatchers on station platforms. Datacom, transmission networks; ICT solutions for metro and urban rail, and Intelligent Video Surveillance solutions were also addressed at the show as critical to the construction and operation of modern railway infrastructure.

Train-ground wireless network, based on LTE technology, enhances the passenger’s experience on board a high speed train by allowing for onboard broadband internet and mobile coverage. Enabling passengers to video-call home and connect to the office over wifi or cellular networks, passengers can also keep track of their travel itinerary through integrated scheduling and ticketing systems: all accessible by downloading an application on their smart phones. Railway operators will also have the ability to share information on journey updates, passenger and train status as well as being able to keep a close eye on physical security issues by using the latest CCTV monitoring equipment.

Huawei recently won the prestigious Etihad rail project to provide the core network infrastructure with GSM-R, MSN (Multi-Service Networks) and a Masterclock. The entire railway project is expected to finish in2013.
