Huawei to supply rail wireless system in Germany

DB Systel, a subsidiary of German rail network operator Deutsche Bahn, has acquired an IP-core based GSM-Railway (GSM-R) system from Chinese vendor Huawei. The system will be used in DB Systel's test laboratory to examine future-oriented network architectures for GSM-R.

DB Systel plans to conduct product and interoperability testing for its own purposes to examine interaction between Huawei`s system architectures and existing architectures in the GSM-R network. With the purchase of this system DB Systel's test laboratory provides access to GSM-R equipment from Huawei for the first time. Huwaei has already won GSM-R contracts in China and Australia.
