Tunnels in the Transportation Segment, together with Mining, have, traditionally, been the stronghold where EUCARAY® Radiating Cables not only have the highest usage but for which they were actually invented.

It is inconceivable to imagine Radio Communication Services in this Segment without the use of Radiating Cables, as the sheer multitude of frequencies used makes it difficult to use Antennas. In addition, the high level of Flame and Fire retardancy of Eupen Radiating Cables plays a key role in making these confined areas a safer place. Generally, we differentiate between the following:

Road Tunnels

predominantly using the following Frequencies:

  • VHF, including FM; for Re-broadcasting of FM Radio with Break-in facility, which allows the Tunnel Operators to play safety-relevant messages to Car drivers using the tunnel
  • UHF, including TETRA and TETRAPOL, to send Mission-Critical Communications into the tunnel for the Emergency and First Responder Services
  • GSM900; to allow Tunnel users to make calls to the Roadside Assist and Emergency Services.

Railway Tunnels

predominantly using the following Frequencies:

  • UHF, including TETRA and TETRAPOL, for Trackside Maintenance and Mission-Critical Emergency Services
  • GSM-R; for Railway Operations Communications and Train Control and Communications Systems
  • DCS; UMTS & LTE; for use by Passengers in the Train

METRO or MRT Tunnels

predominantly using the following Frequencies:

  • VHF, UHF, including TETRA and TETRAPOL; for Trackside Maintenance and Mission-Critical Emergency Services
  • DCS, UMTS & LTE; for use by Passengers in the Train

Various Transport Applications

In addition to the above mentioned transportation applications, EUCARAY® Radiating Cables can be used in various other transportation methods like:

  • Airport
  • Ski Lifts Hotel
  • Coaster Rail
  • City Cable Cars
