On March 24, 2019, Indonesia announced the official opening of the first subway line in Jakarta. Hytera Communications Corporation (Hytera), together with its partner Nippon Electric Company (NEC), provides communications solutions for the first phase of the Indonesian capital Jakarta Metro Line 1.
The first phase of Jakarta Metro Line 1 is 15.7 kilometers long. It starts at Bundaran HI in central Jakarta and ends at Lebak Bulus in southern Jakarta. It has 13 stations, including 7 elevated platforms and 6 underground stations. It is expected that the opening of Line 1 will welcome 212000 passengers per day, with a maximum passenger flow of 960,000 passengers, which will alleviate the local traffic congestion to a certain extent.
Hytera provided a complete metro communications solution for the project, including fully redundant TETRA digital trunking systems, customized mobile radios, command and dispatch systems, and flexible frequency planning. Hytera's customized solutions ensure that radio signals completely cover specific environments such as the ground, tunnels, and buildings, allowing communication between metro drivers, stations, and control centers.
