The TETRA network installed at Rio de Janeiro's Metro Line 4 route will work to provide public safety communications to emergency and railway staff, Cobham said Wednesday.

The new Metro route covers approximately 10 miles of railway track and is expected to transport 300,000 passengers each day during the Rio Olympics.

Cobham Wireless has started to deploy remote radio units, head-end tools, cellular communications networks and engineering services in support of the Olympics public safety efforts in Rio de Janeiro.
