Oslo Subway ("Sporveien") has chosen Ice for better accessibility on the subway

For its new CBTC signaling system, the Sporveien will use commercial mobile networks to control the subway. Ice has entered into an agreement with Sporveien to ensure maximum uptime and security of the services. The agreement will enter into force in 2023.

- More and more critical services in society will be managed over mobile networks. We want to give credit to Sporveien for thinking proactively and future-oriented with solutions that reduce risk and the best uptime. We thank you for the trust shown in the network we have built, says Hans Heggenhaugen, director of the B2B market in Ice.

Sporveien is investing in a new signaling and protection system with CBTC technology. The new signaling system will replace all current signaling systems and involves a paradigm shift for the metro in Oslo, with more and more precise departures.

- By controlling the new signaling system over commercial mobile networks, we use proven technology in a new and smart way. We are very pleased to have reached an agreement with Ice that helps us get a more future-oriented solution, with higher operational reliability and lower costs than we could get by building and maintaining our own wireless networks, says project manager Erik Leenderts in Sporveien .

Sporveien's technology choice is the result of a thorough process, based on studies and discussions with both the supplier market, the mobile operators, authorities and the research community.
