The Societe de Transport de Montreal (STM), which operates Montreal's vast public transportation network, is deploying an advanced communication system that integrates real-time information to enhance passenger safety and operational efficiencies. The new system will streamline communications to support STM's system that oversees more than 1.2m trips daily over bus, taxibus and paratransit services.
To design and install its new integrated system, STM awarded its critical project to INIT Innovations in Transportation Inc., including a USD16m Project 25 (P25) mission-critical communication system from Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS). The order was received in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.
The Harris P25 system is a key element in STM's integrated real-time information system from INIT and will help provide seamless coordination of Montreal's transit services. Migration from the agency's existing Harris EDACS system to the P25 system will be cost-effective and minimize the impact on transportation schedules. The new system equips STM with 2,000 mobile radios and will deliver P25 Phase 2 system functionality.
Harris is an international communications and information technology company serving government and commercial markets in more than 125 countries. Headquartered in Melbourne, Florida, the company has approximately USD5.5bn of annual revenue and about 15,000 employees -- including 6,000 engineers and scientists.
