In the early morning of August 31, the signaling upgrade and its supporting facilities for the Guangzhou-Shenzhen railway were successfully completed and officially put into operation. CASCO provided the FZk-CTC3.0 system (a centralized traffic control system) for stations and yards throughout this railway line.
This technology will be used on Zhengzhou Metro Line 5 for the first time, marking the first successful application of 5G technology to the rail transit signaling system.
