NISz to start talks with bidders in GSM-R tender
Hungary's National Infocommunications Service Company (NISz) will start talks with three of four bidders in a tender to build a “Global System for Mobile Communications – Railway” (GSM-R) system. NISz said it is starting talks with a consortium of Kapsch Carrier Com and MVM Ovit, a consortium of SELEX Electronik and Huawei Technologies, and with Nokia Siemens Networks. ZTE Hungary, which also bid, did not meet the requirements, NISz added. NISz puts the project's cost at HUF 22.6 billion. European Union funding will cover 85% of the total.
