BT puts Network Rail on new track
05/09/2008 | Channel:
BT has won the contract to provide Network Rail with voice and data communication services, which will see much of its legacy infrastructure replaced by new fixed line voice and internet services.
The £30 million, three-year deal will cover all of Network Rail's several hundred sites, including offices, control centres, depots, signal boxes, and level crossings. The new network will ultimately be integrated into Network Rail's FTN project, which will renew and replace 16,000km of copper cabling and 11,000km of fibre optic cabling in readiness to launch a state-of-the- art digital driver-to-signaller radio system.
