"After a three year preparation and tendering phase, we look forward to the implementation of this major project in Poland. We are clearly the right partner and fully prepared for this project based on our extensive expertise and high level of innovation", explains Horst Kaufmann, Kapsch CarrierCom’s Vice President for GSM-R Sales in CEE. "This order is particularly important to us because Poland, measured in total kilometres of railway track, is one of the largest railway countries in Europe. Now that the order is signed, we can immediately begin with the delivery of the national core network and access equipment for a test system".
In addition to the deployment of GSM-R base stations on an 84km railway route in Lower Silesia, the confirmed order includes a redundant core network in Warsaw and Poznan as the basis for the further route expansion. The Polish railway plans to expand this route gradually and introduce GSM-R across the country after the completion of the pilot project.
