LTE-R Digital Band / Channel Selective Pico Repeaters

As a common transportation, Railways transportation increases the carrying capacity, shortens the transportation time and decreases the transportation cost which improve the quality of transportation services, yield greater customer satisfaction, and help to create the socioeconomically balanced societies. And this highly efficient transport mode creates significant challenges in terms of investment, technology, industry, and environment.

To handle increasing traffic, ensure passenger safety, and provide real-time multi-media information, GSM-R communication system and more advanced LTE-R communication system is required. GSM-R is essentially the same system as the GSM but with railway-specific functionalities. The GSM-R network serves as a data carrier for the ETCS, which is the signaling system used for railway control. To provide improved and more efficient transmission for railway communication, LET-R has many advantages over GSM in terms of capacity and capabilities. LTE-R which is based LTE standard will replace GSM-R in the future.

HELIOS® GSM-R/LTE-R Digital Single Band Repeaters employ Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology based upon our FPGA & DSP Platform. This achieves high out of-band rejection and high intra-Carrier interference compared to traditional Analog IF SAW filters. It also enables on-the-fly filter change/upgrade by software without an expensive hardware upgrade.
