NSN powers Spain's GSM rail network

Nokia Siemens Networks said it will boost traffic safety and operational efficiency for a new railway link from Madrid to Valencia and Albacete.

Nokia Siemens Networks will provide, operate and maintain a complete railway mobile communications solution for Spain's rail administration ADIF to cover some 450 kilometres of the newly constructed high-speed tracks linking Madrid with the cities of Valencia and Albacete.

The system will provide communications for trains running at up to 350 km/h. The single streamlined digital radio system for railway communications, or GSM-R, carries signaling and operational information directly to the driver,the company said.

Under the current contract, Nokia Siemens Networks will supply a complete GSM-R radio solution with network management as well as services including network implementation.
