Voice Communication & Control Systems

Operational communication solutions that enhance safety

The FTS 3020 Fixed Terminal System consists of modules certified for use in safety-critical applications and has a proven track record in the field. It primarily focuses on interfacing with GSM-R mobile networks, but it also provides a migration path for the integration of existing analogue infrastructures into a unified communication solution.

The solution can vary in size from a few controller positions managing a single railway line up to a countrywide network with many local railway stations and large command and control centres.

Its hybrid architecture allows flexible interfacing to existing communication and network infrastructures, as well as to IP-based information systems like GSM-R, intelligent network servers, train location systems and SMS centres. This flexibility lets Frequentis help you protect your existing investments, migrate to state-of-the-art technologies like VoIP, and develop new, advanced rail services.


Central Switch

The core component of the FTS 3020 solution is the duplicated central switch, which is based on a safety-grade hybrid IP/TDM platform. This technology concept ensures non-blocking operation, as well as highly reliable communication and data links.


Management Suite

The operation and maintenance of safety-related systems and infrastructure requires access to efficient and powerful management tools. The management suite offers just such a toolset for configuring the FTS 3020 solution and for status and alarm management.

Its core principles are:

  • The one tool concept
  • for efficient configuration of infrastructural elements and operational data
  • Ease of use
  • achieved through standardised GUI elements, configuration wizards, validation checks and context-sensitive help functions
  • Versioning
  • users can return the system to a previous configuration
  • Standardisation
  • alarm and status information are SNMP-based and can be displayed in the management suite or in an umbrella management system
  • Client/server architecture
  • allows access to the FTS 3020 system from several locations within the organisation

The FTS 3020 solution offers various features which are united in serving one goal: improving the efficiency of everyday processes to ensure the best use of human and technical resources.
