With over $200 Billion USD Invested in Rail and Metro Projects, How Will Asia Respond to Signalling and Telecoms Challenges?
LONDON, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The expansion of the high-speed network is just one of over 80 development projects ongoing in the region. Over the past few years, concerns have been raised over reliability and the safety of the millions of passengers who will use these networks daily, as railways and metros must advance within strict time and budgetary frameworks.

With over 5000kms of rail projects currently in the works in China alone and hundreds of kilometers in development in Thailand, Singapore and Hong Kong, efficient signalling and telecommunication technology for both railways and metros is critical on both existing and evolving projects. Industry leaders have stressed the need to come together to discuss the technical and strategic challenges they are faced with to ensure that safety and performance standards are optimised.
In just one month, from the 16 to the 18th May 2012, over 30 expert speakers and 150 industry leaders from companies such as Siemens, Bombardier, Teltronic and Esterel Technologies will be joined by supporters such as Bangkok Metro, State Railway of Thailand, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration and Bangkok Sky Train, among others, to address these concerns at Signalling and Telecommunications: Asia. The aim is to deliver best practice strategies to the region's specific technical and operational challenges across signalling and telecommunications, safety, project delivery, operations and ROI.
The compelling agenda includes case studies, panel debates and roundtable sessions led by experts such as Alex Man Kwong, Signalling and Telecommunications Project Manager at MTR, and Po-Ying Chen, Head of Signalling System, Electrical and Mechanical Division, Taipei Rapid Transit System. Mr Chen commented that "This conference will bring us not only the new ideas, strategies, solutions and channels to discuss key signalling and telecommunication issues, but also keep us in the forefront of these fields."
