HCM CITY (VNS) — Cisco and the Management Authority for Urban Railways (MAUR) signed an agreement on Thursday to conduct a feasibility study for an Integrated Telecommunications Control Centre for HCM City Urban Railways.
The study, with funding of US$1.5 million, is being undertaken through a grant from the US Trade and Development Agency.
The study will focus on communications technologies for the control centre for HCM City's metro rail system.
The project starts in June and is expected to be completed in November, and aims to establish a strategic ICT plan, which MAUR will use to build a telecommunications control system.
The plan's aim is to improve operational efficiency and management, and provide seamless operation and connectivity with other public transportation systems such as buses, taxis and waterway transport.
Cisco will provide consultancy services, ICT recommendations and technical standards, and will submit an implementation proposal to help realise MAUR's vision for Ho Chi Minh Urban Railways. — VNS
