“Indian Railways has asked VoICE for setting up a 5G-based mobile communication network on the Palwal-Mathura sector of (82 km) Indian Railways in a consortium mode on 700 MHz band as Proof of Concept. Implementation target is 9 to 12 months,” Bhatnagar said.
VoICE members include companies such as Himachal Futuristic Communications Ltd, Telecommunications Consultants India, Signaltron, Lekha Wireless, Coral Telecom, Sparsh, Astrome, Dyotis etc.
The successful trial will help association members to scale up their businesses and benefit from Indian Railways Rs 59,000 crore modernisation plan.
How will the pilot help
“Railways will share their existing infrastructure including spectrum. It is no cost to Railways,” Bhatnagar said.
The pilot will cover various Railway communications like train control communication, emergency communication, gate phone, communication between train controller/station master and driver/guard, track maintenance staff, mission-critical push to talk, group cast mass notification.
Mission Critical services like floor control, audio and video broadcast, push to talk services. special priority calls also will be covered.
This is the first 5G pilot for a private enterprise network that will be conducted by Indian telecom gear makers.
