Nokia to deploy infrastructure on third Polish rail route

27 November 2014 |

Nokia Networks is to deploy mobile infrastructure on a 110km route linking Warsaw to Lodz in Poland.

The move marks Nokia’s third railway mobile infrastructure project in the country, forming part of a modernisation plan of the national rail network carried out by Poland’s rail network management company, PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe (PLK).

The secure digital mobile infrastructure is said to increase safety and help reduce travelling time by enabling faster speeds.

“The Warsaw-Lodz corridor is one of the most popular railway lines in Poland and this project marks another important addition to our rail communications contracts in this country. We have already been selected to provide the mobile infrastructure for the strategic line between Warsaw and Gdynia and the 440km section of the east-west route between Lowicz and Terespol,” said Dirk Lewandowski, head of railway solutions at Nokia Networks.
