GSM-R gateway for connecting the integrated dispatcher system Radiovoice 3

GSM-R gateway is a separate equipment enabling communication between GSM-R network and Radiovoice 3 communication system on the level of interconnection with the GSM-R infrastructure system. It meets fully EIRENE (European Integrated Railway Radio Enhanced Network) requirements – it provides routing of the voice and state services.

The main advantages of GSM-R

  • Gateway for connecting the integrated dispatcher system Radiovoice 3 into GSM-R network
  • Fully compliant with EIRENE specifications
  • Optional of power supply: either 230 V AC or 48 V DC


Basic technical description

The gateway is built-in in the case designed for installation to 19“ rack, of height 1,5 U and depth 30 cm (without connectors), the gateway weight is 3 kg. It can be power supplied from the 230 V 50 Hz network or 48 V DC. Its cooling is active – by ventilators.

GSM-R gateway functionality and redundancy

It is supposed that in each separate GSM-R system (e.g. railway mainline corridor) the gateway will be installed in the location allowing direct connection between the GSM-R infrastructure and the gateway on the level of PRI interface. Subsequent interconnection between the gateway and the Radiovoice system is realized through Ethernet. Such an approach to the GSM-R gateway installation reduces requirements for data connections between individual GSM-R systems, compared to a solution with one centralized gateway. In addition it allows for the traffic distribution between gateways and ensures their redundancy.

GSMR-R gateway capacity

The gateway allows up to 30 simultaneous calls to the GSM-R network, also allows recording of ongoing communications.
