Huawei GSM-R Wins Turkish TCDD Kayas-Kayseri Line

SHENZHEN, China, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced that Huawei GSM-R solution has been selected by the Turkish State Railways (Turkiye Cumhuriyeti Devlet Demiryollari, TCDD), to support the implementation of a modern digital railway communication network for the Kayas-Kayseri railway project, contributing to the technological advancement and improved efficiency of the national railway operations. The contract marks another milestone in the Turkish market by Huawei following the Eskisehir-Alayunt-Kutahya-Balikesir project and Alsancak-Cumaovasi-Torbali-Tepekoy project. This continuous success in Turkey's rail market underlines Huawei's strength on seamless integration of multi vendor GSM-R networks, swift delivery of complex European Railway Transportation Management System (ERTMS) projects and railway ICT experience from customer projects all across the globe.

This is the first project in Eastern part of Turkey for Huawei GSM-R. TCDD's Kayas-Kayseri railway line is located on the Anatolia plateau and concludes with a total length of 367 km, 34 stations and 22 tunnels connecting the cities of Ankara and Kayseri. The GSM-R solution for the Kayas-Kayseri line will be designed by Huawei to meet the stringent ETCS L2 signal system requirements for operational speeds of up to 160 km/h and will interoperate with the existing GSM-R core network infrastructure provided by NSN (Nokia Solutions and Networks).

The Kayas-Kayseri line in Anatolian plateau is known for its geographically complex environment. Huawei's radio design therefore applied a mix of indoor macro base stations to benefit from wide coverage scenarios and Huawei's innovative distributed base station mainly applied in tunnels, cuttings and at railway junctions. Besides GSM-R BSS and integration services Huawei will supply SDH nodes for up to STM-16 capacity. This carefully applied design will allow TCDD to take maximum benefit from an efficient and reliable operation and minimized operating expenditure. With GSM-R put into operation on the Kayas-Kayseri line interconnectivity between the cities will be significantly improved and support economic development within the region.

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions.

Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessio...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
