Iridium Links Aussie Rail Infrastructure

13 июня 2007
Australian telecommunications company Telstra awarded an eight-year contract valued around $3.5 million to Beam Communications to supply Iridium-based satellite equipment as part of a new interstate

communication infrastructure for the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC). The new rail system is designed to provide a single integrated network covering more than 10,000 kilometers of track nationwide.

Telstra said it will integrate the Iridium circuit-switched data service into its network infrastructure, providing satellite interfaces for real-time data transmission and backup voice channels

for emergency communications. Beam will fit the system with satellite voice and data terminals and supply its SatRADIO system for use in tunnels.

The ARTC contract is the second multimillion dollar deal Beam landed from Telstra this year. Last month, Beam unveiled a $4.2 million order to supply fixed-site and in-vehicle satellite telephones for the Telstra Universal Service Obligation program and other in-field support services in Australia.
