  • Signalling Telecommunications Supplement 2013Total renewal in Denmark is on time and on budget
    Henrik Holtermann, Head of Secretariat in the Signalling Programme, Banedanmark
    In 2009, a broad political majority decided to fund a total replacement of the entire signalling system on the Danish national network with ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System) and all the signalling on the Copenhagen S-bane with a CBTC system (Communication Based Train Control).

    Éric Le Moal, Head of ERTMS and Telecom Services, RFF
    Over the years, telecommunications systems have become a vital factor in rail network reliability. A mere boon in the past, they are now essential to railway operating safety and network coordination. Modern telecoms systems have to combine ever higher throughput with exemplary reliability and with that other key factor: mobility. Although there are technologies on the market capable of meeting these needs, modernising a huge network in constant operation represents a major challenge. In 2009, recognising the importance of telecoms in the railway system, Réseau Ferré de France (RFF) joined forces with SNCF to draw-up an overall inventory of all railway telecom equipment and came to the conclusion that looming obsolescence called for urgent action…
