GUWAHATI, May 3 - Maligaon-headquartered Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) today said its signal and telecommunication department added a number of new signalling and telecommunication infrastructure during the fiscal year 2018-19, thereby helping the zone to improve operational efficiency.

�A total of 242 km of optical fibre cables (OFC) that form the backbone of all railway communications was laid and commissioned during the year. The optical fibre cables are more reliable, efficient and durable cables suitable for both data and voice network. The OFC network is also used for Internet and data traffic,� said Pranav Jyoti Sharma, chief public relations officer (CPRO) of NFR.

�In case of quad cables, NFR surpassed the target for the fiscal 2018-19 by almost 100 per cent. Against a target of adding 154 km of quad cables during the year, NFR added 307 km of these cables in 2018-19. Quad cables are high-quality insulated cables capable of carrying 1,100 volts of alternating current (AC) and 1,500 volts of direct current (DC). The quad cables are used for connecting signalling equipment and over the years the use of these cables has reduced incidents of signal failures,� Sharma added.

Sharma said NFR is in mission mode for installing CCTV cameras to ensure better safety and security for passengers and accordingly eight stations and 23 railway level crossing gates were fitted with CCTV cameras during the last financial year. �CCTV cameras were also installed in 11 railway hospitals during the year,� he said.

The signal and telecommunication department of NFR added 12 computerised reservation system (PRS) counters during 2018-19.

�Indian Railways' PRS counters help passengers buy tickets on any train running in any part of the country from anywhere in India. These counters are networked with mainframe computers through data lines which enable people in far-flung areas where railway lines do not exist to buy tickets. Establishing such PRS centres and keeping them connected is the responsibility of the signal and telecommunication department and during the last financial year, NFR added 12 such centres,� said Sharma.

He said the department also introduced LED Display Boards for indicating train arrival and departure at nine stations during the year.

�In addition to these, 18 stations of NFR have been provided with digital displays which are used as a digital museum displaying railway heritage to make the citizens aware of the legacy of Indian Railways,� said the NFR CPRO.
