DAMM announced that it's TETRA radio communication infrastructure has been selected as an integral part of the mission-critical communication solution for the “Namma Metro” project in Bangalore, India, which aims to alleviate heavy road congestion, reduce road accidents and lower pollution around the city.

The Namma Metro project is Phase II Reach 5 of the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL), a joint venture between the Government of India and the Government of Karnataka. It is a fully elevated metro line with a total of 16 stations, including the Hebbagodi depot, over a total length of 18.5km.

In partnership with Consort Digital, the DAMM TETRA radio communication infrastructure will be seamlessly integrated within the CONSORT’s MCX ONE Dispatch Centre, MCX ONE Core Application Server, Train Radio Systems, and Rail Integration Server, as well as end-user devices from Sepura, to deliver a highly-reliable, scalable and secure digital radio system.

The unique DAMM MultiTech BS422 Outdoor base station is one of the most modern TETRA systems that ensures minimal RF losses, consistent and reliable coverage and offers a very low-maintenance burden. Further, DAMM’s distributed architecture, open API and modular structure provide ease, full flexibility and a customised solution that fully meets the customer’s needs.
