Nokia was awarded the infrastructure equipment contract for the railway network. To support this, ATDI designed a country-wide backbone transmission network for the GSM-R network. This optical fibre network consisted of 12-node Photonic service switches and 29 line Photonic service amplifiers. The network was based on DWDM technology and was equipped with IP routers and switches. The network was synchronized by time provider devices.
The ATDI team designed the three-phased network with ease.
The ATDI team analysed and planned a total of 3883.71km of line. This included:
