The Group supplies advanced Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) signalling, telecommunications & security, an integrated Operational Control Centre and automatic fare collection systems for the Doha metro and a fully integrated solution for supervision, telecommunication, security and fare collection systems for the Lusail Light Rail Transit System.
