Friday 26 September 2014 | 10:23 CET | News
Dutch rail operator NS plans to replace its 1,700 GSM-R phones from 2006, according to a posting on the public procurement site TenderNed. The equipment is used in train engine rooms and rolling material. The phones support both standard GSM functions such as voice point-to-point communication and SMS as well as rail-specific features, such as alarm pages and short dial codes. The new contract will run until the end of 2024 with an option for another five years. Certification and adaptation of the equipment should be completed by Q1 2015.
