Communication Systems

Communication Systems

In an underground urban railway system, the efficient and reliable operation of the telecommunications is of paramount importance to the operation of the entire Metro system. Even though there are acceptable telecommunications systems for a wide range of application, only those systems that fulfill the highest standards of manufacture and the special requirements concerning the operation of the railway and the associated installations are suitable to be used in the Metro Base Project.
Moreover, the appropriate provisions have been made during the design and installation of the equipment in the extensions of lines 2 and 3, so that these systems are fully compatible with the already operating systems of the Base Project.
