CR COMMUNICATION NETWORK HAS MADE GREAT PROGRESS

The level of communication technology of the Chinese Railway has recently been dramatically increased. By April 1995, the capacity of telephone switchboards was nearing 600,000 sets. The coverage of optical cable and microwave lines was up by 40% and the total number of telephones used by CR was almost 500,000. The advanced technology means program controlled switchboards, digital microwaves, optical fiber, satellite and data exchange communications. The increased application and use of new technologies will directly serve railway transportation information management systems, integrated operation management information systems, car control inventories, marshalling yards and railway business operations. The new technologies insure that CR will be better able to make the transition from small capacity to large capacity rail operations.
