GSM - Railway

GSM-Railway ensures safe and reliable operations

GSM-R is a proven digital platform that is now the standard for railway-specific voice and data operational services on five continents. Its total interoperability and compatibility is vastly improving the safety and speed of all railway operational services. And it allows train drivers to communicate freely throughout transcontinental journeys, regardless of the country they happen to be in. As well as providing a set of standardized operational and safety features for national and cross-border rail networks, GSM-R also enables the seamless integration of regional services and applications such as the European Train Control System (ETCS).

Nokia GSM-R solutions provide railway operators with a single streamlined digital radio system to replace all existing communication systems, thereby helping to reduce costs, improve interoperability and enhance safety. They also allow maintenance data to be transmitted to the depot in real time to reduce idle time, increase capacity utilization, and ultimately reduce OPEX.

Nokia Networks has deployed GSM-R networks in 21 countries serving over 78,000 km of railways, making it the World Number One GSM-R vendor in both number of commercial networks and length of operated GSM-R lines. With live projects in Australia, China, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Nokia Networks is the world leader in GSM-Railway.
