A testament of Huawei’s customer-centric innovation and strength in LTE adoption in the enterprise domain, the eLTE urban rail transportation solution deployed in Zhengzhou Metro was awarded the Technology Innovation Award by the World Railway Development and Research Society in April this year. The solution features professional anti-interference technologies, addressing the needs of metro operators on a number of applications, including passenger information system (PIS), closed-circuit television, vehicle-mounted video surveillance, communication-based train control (CBTC), and broadband trunking.

“The traditional metro communication platform with segregated transmission networks can no longer meet the requirements of an evolving metro industry,” said Mr. Patrick Zhang, President of Marketing and Solutions Department, Huawei Enterprise. “With the increasing reliance on wireless communication network in the rail transportation industry, metro operators are looking for a rail transportation solution that can simultaneously carry out a number of application management services, as well as data, voice and video transmissions. With Huawei’s highly mobile eLTE urban rail transportation solution, Zhengzhou Metro is able to enhance quality of service across multiple levels of operations, achieving safe operation, agile dispatching and convenience for passengers.”
