VicTrack and Maser’s partner Dali Wireless have announced the successful deployment of the new digital public safety communications system for the Protective Services Officers (PSO) working at selected Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM) railway stations.
VicTrack, which owns the state’s transport infrastructure and assets, selected infrastructure provider Dali Wireless to design and deploy a P25 Phase 1 & 2 public safety DAS for railway stations with known ‘black-spots’.
The new network provides coverage for nine PSO surveillance offices and the surrounding stations using its advanced digital DAS technology.
Tasked with addressing issues with station platform and underpass blackspots, VicTrack was looking for a fiber transmission solution for two-way radio communications that would overcome limitations of the previous “wireless-only” system.
Dali’s advanced digital DAS not only delivered on all the coverage requirements with high quality communications, it could also be easily expanded to accommodate future requirements making it a good long-term investment for VicTrack.
Working with local partner Maser Group, Dali provided a bespoke solution for Melbourne’s Metropolitan Protective Service Officers that combined Dali’s advanced digital DAS technology with an uninterrupted power system and remote network monitoring for high efficiency and availability.
“This Australian first project has been a result of many months of hard work and negotiations to provide VicTrack the best solution on the market, which it has with the Dali Wireless solution.”
