Teltronic´s TETRA will ensure critical communications in this APM project in close cooperation with AMR Asia.

Teltronic has been appointed by the leading System Integrator AMR Asia as TETRA provider of the Gold Line, an Automatic People Mover (APM) line which is under construction and will be the first feeder line of Bangkok's rapid transit system operated by BTS.

Teltronic will be providing its end-to-end solution consisting of its high capacity Switching Control Node, Site Base Stations that will ensure the full coverage along this new line, world class SC20 handheld terminals, and desktop units. The communications will be managed from the Teltronic´s Command and Control Centre (CeCoCo).

“We feel honoured to count on AMR Asia’s trust to provide the Mission Critical communications of the Gold line project. Thailand is a key country for us in coming years with a strong growth potential led by a good number of new railway projects” stated Josep Jonch, APAC Regional Director for Teltronic.

The state-of-the-art Teltronic system will provide Critical voice and Data services to support the operations from BTS in the Gold line, which will connect the existing Green Line new real estate, commercial developments and public healthcare facilities such as Iconsiam and Taksin Hospital and it is expecting 47.000 passenger per day. In a latter phase, a second stretch will be built to complete the full length of the project and will reach the Purple line.

“This project brings to light, one more time, the versatility and reliability of TETRA in transport environments, and the bright future that lies ahead for this technology. TETRA manufacturers keep innovating through new technology developments every year. Where other radio technologies are announcing its end of life in coming years, TETRA is a solid technology that will be there for many years to come” Felipe Sanjuán, Teltronic’s Transport Business Development Director.
