Integration of Communications systems in Malaysian Railway

12:15 - 12:45

Communication systems are critical for the safe and efficient operations of the many railway transport projects currently underway and upcoming in Malaysia. The ability to design and implement resilient and reliable communication systems is essential to ensure that the projects are delivered with the safety of commuters and the general public as the priority, while meeting the requirements of the railway operator. These include systems such as Secure Radio Communication, Backbone Transmission, SCADA, CCTV, Passenger Information Display, Public Address and Wayside Wireless Broadband.

The challenges in making these systems work in harmony in a construction project involving many multidisciplinary parties would require deep technical knowledge in various communication technologies, understanding in railway operations and regulatory requirements.
