Tadiran Telecom introduces, for the first time in China, an advanced Softswitch communications solution to the Kunming subway

Tadiran Telecom, a leader in IP telephony and telecommunications, has been selected to provide Kunming Subway in China with a customized solution for all three of its subway lines. The solution is both a mission-critical dispatching control and administrative communications system and includes, for the first time in Chinese subway history, an advanced softswitch communications system. The system, which will be installed by Tadiran’s subsidiary KTT, is currently in the first stage of deployment.

Kunming Subway is a rapid transit system currently under construction in Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province. Kunming has a population of over 3 million and is currently one of the largest cities in China without a subway system. The first phase of the project is planned to be completed in the middle of 2012. The Kunming Subway system has selected Tadiran Telecom’s solution to simultaneously serve all of the three lines, numbers 1, 2, and 6 in this complex and multi-level project. The Kunming Subway communications system project will include over 125 IPx 3000, IPx 500M, and Tadiran softswitch servers.

Tadiran’s President and CEO Eldad Barak: “Thanks to our vast experience with the requirements of the Chinese railway industry, we are able to provide high-quality solutions and one of the highest standards of service in the market. Tadiran was awarded the project in Kunming due to past successful deployments in China’s transportation field. Today we specialize in several vertical markets in China including transportation and power; we are confident we will strengthen our presence even further in these and other vertical markets”.

Bill Miao, General Manager of KTT: “We are pleased to receive an additional subway project in China that includes Tadiran Telecom solutions. This project is to be executed in the home town of KTT- Kunming. It’s a special feeling to have the opportunity to serve the people of our home region. In this project, for the first time in China, Tadiran will provide communications solutions for all the lines in the same transit system. An additional characteristic of this project is that it’s the first in China to integrate softswitch servers in constructing the PBX network and as such it provides new possibilities for the even larger Chinese railway market. This project extends a series of Tadiran’s successful deployments in the transportation field in China and enables us to once again deliver high-quality service and enhance our credibility among our customers”.

Mr. Miao added, “The administration of the Kunming Subway has selected Tadiran Telecom for its reliability, stability, mission-critical capabilities and the most cost-effective solution”.
