Meeting the railway interoperability policies of the European Community, REFER Telecom made its first call on the GSM-R network (GSM for Railways) on the Cascais Line section, the first railway line to use digital network mobile coverage.
REFER Telecom will implement the alternative Data Processing Centre nationwide, also called disaster recovery (DR) site by the Tax and Customs Authority (AT).
In the scope of the consulting service provided by REFER Telecom to UIC - International Union of Railways, a model document on the adoption of telecommunications networks based on IP technology (Internet Protocol) to support railway telecommunications was produced.
With the objective of making its integrated communications platform for Railway Exploration - netrail-m - more versatile, robust and secure, REFER Telecom has developed a set of new functions and redesigned the architecture of the solution to increase its level of availability.
Following the technical consulting service that REFER Telecom provides to UIC in March 2012, the first edition of the reference document on the adoption of telecommunications networks based on IP and MPLS technology to support Railway System communications (Voice and Data) was publically presented.
