Avari Wireless awarded contract to provide radio communications coverage for the Toronto underground subway system pilot project
Avari Wireless has announced they are the winner of the tender to supply Distributed Antenna System (DAS) for the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). The project’s scope is to supply engineering, equipment, materials, and other services to construct a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) using digital technologies, to provide radio communications coverage over a TTC underground subway system segment, supporting TTC and Public Safety agencies.
The current contract shall demonstrate that the demo pilot system design and equipment supplied can meet performance and speciﬁcation requirements in a speciﬁc section of the TTC and has the inherent capability to be expanded to support the radio coverage requirements of the entire underground and enclosed areas of the TTC subway system. The TTC provides a vital transportation service to the City of Toronto and environs serving over 500 million passengers per year, and the subway currently has 75 stations spread across over 75 km of tracks.
“We are very excited that TTC has selected Avari to proceed with a pilot project for the replacement of old distributed antenna equipment in Line 1, 2 and 4 of the Toronto subway. It is yet another signiﬁcant recognition of the proven best-in-class technology and unmatched capabilities that Avari has deployed globally,” says Andrew Leung, CEO of Avari Wireless.
Built upon decades of DAS industry experience and a skilled team of seasoned professionals, Avari Wireless is well-positioned to meet the needs of customers who demand high-quality and reliable in-building wireless infrastructure for ﬁrst responders and private radio users.
