Teltronic was awarded the contract by AMR Asia, which is the leading system integrator for the project. Tetra will provide critical voice and data services on the Gold Line.

Teltronic will provide its end-to-end solution comprising a high-capacity switching control node, site base stations, SC20 handheld terminals, and desktop units. Communications will be managed from Teltronic’s Command and Control Centre (CeCoCo).

The 2.7km Gold Line will run north from Krung Thonburi on the BTS Silom Line to Prajadhipok Road in the first phase. The line will be operated by BTS and is expected to carry 47,000 passengers per day. The Gold Line is due to open in 2021.

A second phase is proposed which will connect the Gold Line to the Purple Line.

“This project brings to light the versatility and reliability of Tetra in transport environments, and the bright future that lies ahead for this technology,” says Mr Felipe Sanjuán, Teltronic’s transport business development director. “Tetra manufacturers keep innovating through new technology developments every year. Where other radio technologies are announcing the end of life in the coming years, Tetra is a solid technology that will be there for many years to come.”
