The radio project has allowed some 2,000 SNCB collaborators to be reached much more easily. Thanks to Motorola’s DMR technology, users can now communicate from much greater distances: within stations, between stations, with signal boxes, via the Internet and even across different sites throughout Belgium. There are fewer sources of interference during radio calls and the coordination between stations to help a traveller with reduced mobility is facilitated. Besides, the radio now has a built-in GPS in order to assist SNCB collaborators when they find themselves in an unsafe situation. Furthermore, this project was nominated as Large ICT Project of the Year 2019 by DataNews.
