Huawei & Tianjin Release LTE-R Solution for Wireless Communication Trains

At the UITP Global Public Transport Summit 2019 in Stockholm, Huawei and its partner Tianjin 712 Communication & Broadcasting Co., jointly released an LTE-Railway (LTE-R) Solution for next-generation rail wireless communications. The solution which is already being deployed in China, enables high-speed, reliable and intelligent communications to ensure safety and efficiency for rail passengers.

The rapid development of high-speed rail has made it a fast, safe, and comfortable mode of transport for many people. The cornerstone of a safe and reliable rail operation is ensuring information synergy between passengers, trains, and infrastructure, and with the development of autonomous driving, intelligent trains, and smart stations this demands higher-speed and more intelligent wireless communications technologies. The LTE-R Solution was developed to address these needs and enable fully connected railways.

The LTE-R Solution supports 5G-oriented evolution and interconnectivity with GSM-R. The solution’s advanced features include multiple trunking services such as Mission Critical Push-to-Talk (MCPTT) voice, video, and data, and leveraging one LTE-R network to enable train control, train dispatching, passenger information system (PIS), CCTV, and other rail services. Together with 5G, the solution will enable a future of intelligent railways where all things are connected.

The LTE-R Solution released at the summit delivers safe, high-speed, and intelligent wireless voice and data communications inside trains, from train to ground and from train to train. The network facilitates the digital transformation of rail customers to help them thrive in the future.
