Advanced communications for Chilean underground

Zenitel : 04 September, 2008  (Application Story)
A ground to train communication system is to be installed by Zenitel on the Metro de Santiago, Chile's underground railway system
Advanced communications for Chilean underground
Metro de Santiago, one of the major players in the public transportation system of the Chilean capital, daily transporting more than 2.2 million passengers, is building two new extensions to its existing network. To make sure that all these passengers can rely on secure and fast transport, Zenitel, in cooperation with the Chilean company Sometec SA, will supply "behind the scenes" communication essential for smooth, reliable and uncomplicated operation.

Zenitel and Sometec SA have signed a contract to install a new ground-to-train communication system for both extensions; the contract also includes the improvement of the existing Control Centre of the Santiago Metro. Zenitel will take care of the critical communication between the train drivers and the control centre supervisors and thus help the "Empresa de Transporte de Pasajeros Metro S.A", owner of the Santiago Metro, to provide a service of excellence to his passengers.
The Metro of Santiago critical communication system which uses electrical power lines as transmission means, falls completely within Zenitel's expertise and is based on other references such as the Paris Subway, Marseille Subway and Mexico City Subway. The contract, including a ten year maintenance contract, is worth 2.9 million Euros for Zenitel.

With both extensions in operation, the Santiago Metro network will reach by 2010, a total length of 104.5 km with 105 stations.
