Huawei announced that its GSM-R solution has won the bid for the Turkmenistan Buzhun-Serehtyaka and Bereket-Cilmammet integrated railway communications project.
In 2012, Huawei deployed GSM-R technologies in Turkmenistan’s Turkmenbasy-Ashgabat (east-west) Line and Cilmammet-Buzhun (south-north) Line in 2012.
The peak speed of the railway line will increase from 60 km per hour to 120 km per hour, which improves the efficiency of the transportation of the specific railway lines. Turkmenistan has 3,600 km of railway lines.
Huawei has supplied GSM-R solution including the DBS3800 distributed base stations and Remote Radio Units (RRUs) which are installed on top of the towers, reducing the impact of antenna feeder loss on radio network coverage while satisfying the special local requirement that equipment rooms cannot be located close to the towers.
Huawei also re-utilizes the core networks implemented in the 2012 projects, which reduces network construction cost and ensures reliability of the railway communications network, meeting the trunking dispatch needs on Turkmenistan’s live networks.
