Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and Nokia have announced a partnership to support the Grand Paris Rail Project, which aims to deliver advanced smart mobility to the Grand Paris area. The project involves the construction of 200 kilometers of new rail, creating four additional subway lines and extending an existing line. Additionally, 68 new subway stations will be built to facilitate the development of sustainable urban centers.
To provide the necessary infrastructure for the Grand Paris Express, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and Nokia have combined their offerings to create a certified and integrated end-to-end mission-critical network. This includes a state-of-the-art multi-service IP/MPLS high-speed backbone network from Nokia, which meets all the operation and maintenance requirements of the project. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s ruggedized LAN OmniSwitch range is being deployed in stations and remote industrial environments to enable management of video surveillance and air quality control through IoT sensors. These solutions enhance efficiency, safety, and the passenger experience by providing real-time operational data. The communication between the centralized control center and the automated stations, lines, and depots is closely monitored and crucial to daily operations, maintenance, and the project’s cybersecurity strategy.
The partnership aims to deliver a secure, reliable, and high-performance transportation service to the 2 million daily commuters in the Grand Paris area. The new communications system promises superior levels of service, intuitive ticketing, and enhanced digital services such as improved connectivity. Both companies are engaged in this long-term project, with ongoing deployment planned until 2035, as well as several other projects in the transportation sector around the world.
Rukmini Glanard, Chief Business Officer at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, expressed pride in the partnership with Nokia and highlighted the project’s alignment with their Technology for Good strategy. Nathan Stenson, Nokia Vice President, Global Partner Channel, emphasized the use of Nokia’s leading-edge IP/MPLS technology to enable a powerful multi-service IoT network that enhances safety and security throughout the Grand Paris Express.
With their combined expertise and commitment to sustainable development, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and Nokia are set to transform the transportation landscape in the Grand Paris area. Their collaboration showcases the potential of digital transformation to create efficient and eco-friendly transportation solutions for urban centers.
