Jun. 21 –  Communications solutions developed by Israeli IP business telephony and communications supplier Tadiran Telecom, have been chosen as part of the Beijing Subway’s expansion plan. Beijing is planning to build the world’s biggest subway by 2015, spending over $7.6 billion in track transport development this year alone. Subway Line 15 and Daxing, Beijing’s southern city quarter Subway Line, will be equipped with 87 units of Tadiran Telecom’s IPx 3000 system and a FlexiCom 5000 system connected across about 57 kilometers of track. Tadiran’s system will provide converged voice, data and video communications, dispatch and system-wide management applications that will enable real-time monitoring of the entire network. Petah Tikva based Tadiran is already providing communications to much of Beijing’s public transportation including the Beijing Subway Lines 4 and 5, the Airport Express subway line, and the Beijing Airport Command Center. As a result of this success, Tadiran was picked for the latest expansion from competitors like Siemens, Alcatel, Feihong, Ericsson and Harris. Line 15 is the sixth line awarded in the Beijing subway to KTT, Tadiran?s subsidiary in China. Tadiran?s telephony solutions have already been deployed in other transportation projects in China, including Dalian International, Hohhot, Tianjin, Wuhan, Zhenzhou, Hainan Phoenix and Wuxi airports and Internal Metro Express in Beijing airport.
