Network Rail is implementing a new £1.7bn railway
communications system which will provide significant performance
and safety benefits to the railway.
Using Global System for Mobile Communications – Railways (GSM-R)
technology, it will for the first time provide a single, national
system of secure train driver-to-signaller communication. GSM-R
requires the construction of approximately 2000 radio masts and
base stations across the entire rail network.
