Motorola to provide advanced tech for MRT

By TMR 

Motorola Solutions will deliver a secure and reliable TETRA two-way radio communications network for the country’s first Klang Valley mass rapid transit (KVMRT) line.

The US-based communications solutions provider is the technology partner to the APLG consortium.

The 51km Sungai Buloh-Kajang line comprises 31 stations including seven underground stations.

The network is planned as part of an integrated mobility project that will provide seamless urban transportation for residents in the Greater Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley region.

“Cooperating with Motorola Solutions enables our companies to combine their local and global expertise. Working together, we will deliver a highly-customised communication system providing timely and secure transportation services for the Malaysian public,” said APLG consortium project director Byung Il Park.

Motorola Solutions (M) Sdn Bhd country president Datuk Mohd Rauf Nasir (picture) said resilient and reliable communication would ensure the KVMRT project is delivered without compromising the safety of commuters and rail workers.

“Throughout the project’s four-year construction and in its daily operational use, our communication network will provide security, safety and convenience for workers and users of the urban transportation system,” he said in a statement.

Motorola Solutions will supply, design and install the complete, digital two-way radio communications network for the new MRT line, including more than 500 TETRA radio devices and base stations.

“Motorola Solutions has a strong track record of innovation and exceptional engineering talent in Malaysia. This is the first time that our all Malaysia-based team of engineers will manage an entire metro rail project from end-to-end,” said Mohd Rauf.

Public rail transportation represents a key part of Malaysia’s economic development programme in the Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley area, with two additional MRT lines proposed under the KVMRT project.

Line 2 is expected to be completed by 2022.
