Indra has implemented a communications and security network in the city of Buenos Aires

(15/06/2017)  The project amounts to 18.9 million euros and is for the exclusive use of the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires (AMBA) rail network, one of the world's largest. Specifically, it provides services for the Sarmiento, Mitre, San Martín, Belgrano Sur and Roca lines, with a total of 1.2 million passengers daily, over 250 stations connected to the network and more than 300 communicated trains.

The new system facilitates the transfer of voice and data with neither losses nor delays, both for usual rail operations as well as during emergency situations, and it improves control and coordination.

The system also enables the permanent localization of vehicles and operators through georeferencing signals of the communication terminals with which they are fitted. This way, this technology allows for counting with an exact overview of available resources at any given time and place, and facilitates suitable responses in the face of any incidents. A communication recording system contributes to investigating what actually happened in the event of an accident, for example.
