Sweden’s transport operator Trafikverket builds a nationwide GSM-R & IP/ MPLS communications network to enhance safety and efficiency

Sweden’s national transportation agency, Trafikverket, is responsible for long-term infrastructure planning for road, rail, shipping and aviation. It owns, constructs, operates and maintains all state-owned railways and roads, as well as a large number of ferry services. Since 1990, Trafikverket has utilized a national transmission network for all communications critical to the safe operation of transportation traffic in Sweden.

In recent years, train signaling, alarm systems, ticketing, video surveillance, traffic management and increasing volumes of corporate and passenger voice, video, and data traffic were placing substantial demands on communications services, while many older network components were becoming difficult to maintain. Trafikverket selected Nokia to lead the transformation of its communications infrastructure to a future-ready digital solution. By deploying GSM-R and IP solutions, Trafikverket  is now managing a ground-to-train radio network and a unified IP/MPLS infrastructure for supporting all critical data and services, including support operational voice and train signaling communications – all with high availability, security and cost efficiency
