Teltronic, a Sepura Group company, was selected by Siemens to supply a new TETRA system for the urban transport network in the city of Monterrey in Mexico. Consisting of 40 kilometres of metro lines, the Metrorrey network also covers Transmetro, the rapid transit bus system (BRT) with a fleet of around 200 buses.

Teltronic’s solution for the Metrorrey network comprises of TETRA infrastructure, a Control Centre application, video surveillance in stations, and advanced on-board radio equipment for trains and buses. The Nebula TETRA infrastructure will provide radio coverage to the metro network and the commuter buses.

The redundant design guarantees total immunity against failure, and allows the 12 operators in the Control Centre to manage radio communications with the vehicles, as well as the current telephone system via the Teltronic solution CeCo-TRANS.

RTP-Series on-board terminals will be installed in all 53 of the Metrorrey network’s trains and Transmetro’s 185 buses. This will allow management of routine and emergency voice and data communications between drivers and the Control Centre, transmission of GPS location information, and access to public address systems. Maintenance and operation teams will use HTT-500 hand portable terminals and DT-410 desktop radio units.

This project consolidates Teltronic’s position as one of the leading suppliers of professional radio communication systems in the Mexican market, and a major force in communications throughout the whole of South America.

Alfonso Reyes Santa Anna, Operations Manager at STC Metrorrey commented that Teltronic has exceeded their expectations in terms of technical development, product quality and dedicated customer service, with the solution addressing their technical and operational requirements. STC Metrorrey is confident the TETRA system will optimise their mission critical communications, augmenting the security of both passengers and employees of Metrorrey.

Felipe Sanjuan Pasamar, Business Development Director for Transportation Systems for the Sepura Group says that their cutting-edge solution leverages the power of TETRA technology to tackle Metrorrey’s daily operational challenges, making a vital contribution to the quick, safe and efficient transportation of millions of passengers.
