New GSM-R Project in South Africa

The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) is in an intense process of modernizing its infrastructure. PRASA chose amongst others the digital telecommunication system GSM-R. It should be used for the carrying-out of operational voice communication as well as for the future implementation of ETCS in the regions Gauteng, Western Cape and Kwazulu Natal.

quattron management consulting was contracted with his South African partner Siyaya Rail Solutions for the technical assistance and supervision of design, installation and implementation of the digital GSM-R network.

quattron, which has longstanding project experience and expertise, supports the construction supervision. Furthermore, quattron assists its customer in technical and operational matters concerning this important technology implementation.
