DataValue was tasked in 2000 by SBB AG (Schweizerischen Bundesbahnen) with the construction and technical operation of the system ‘Mobile Rail Data (MRD)’.

Our GSM-R planning system for SBB sites in Switzerland is the strategic planning tool for the construction of approx. 1200 GSM-R antenna sites in Switzerland.

GSM-R (GSM-Railway) has been conceptualized for covering railway-specific communication requirements. In addition GSM-R will provide a communication platform for future information services – initially for railway personnel and later for commuter information as well.

The further development DV-MRD should serve as planning and information service. Relevant data for the construction and operation of GSM-R sites should be managed by the system.

DV-MRD is part of DataValue’s ERTMS Toolbox.

  • The information system comprises the following applications:
    INFRA (Infrastructure data of the SBB AG)
    Management of buildings, electrical installations as well as heating, airconditioning and ventilation systems
  • MRD (Mobile Rail Data)
    GSM-R data re. masts, antennas, radio cells and radio services
  • ROT (RollOut Tracker)
    project progress controls for the rollout of GSM-R lines and sites
