In line with Eltel’s purpose to ‘secure the lifelines of modern society’, Eltel Denmark is designing, building and managing communication infrastructure for Danish railways through three large projects that are revolutionising train transport in Denmark.

Improving train punctuality

Eltel is replacing old railway signalling throughout Denmark with a modern IT system installed in the locomotives. The system is significantly improving punctuality and reliability for passengers, and Eltel is safeguarding the IT security of the system.

Network upgrade

The existing fibre network is being upgraded with new technology to increase bandwidth. Eltel is responsible for designing the project, the hardware tender, installation and 24/7 surveillance.

Better connected rail passengers

Eltel is building 60 new mobile base stations along railway routes to ensure good mobile connectivity throughout Denmark’s rail network. When complete, the investment will ensure passengers have better internet access when traveling by train throughout Denmark.
