DAMM Cellular Systems has won the contract to provide
TetraFlex® Solution to the Gas Authority of India
Limited (GAIL) pipeline in north India.
GAIL is a Government of India undertaking, and the largest gas
transmission and marketing company in India. Started as a natural
gas pipeline company in 1984, GAIL has successfully evolved into a
major integrated gas company with presence across the natural gas
value chain. GAIL (India) Limited has shown growth in gas
transmission through the years by building large network of trunk
pipelines covering length of over 11000 Km.
New compressor stations of GAIL are coming up at the locations
Kailaras and Chainsa in the existing Pipeline 'Bawana'.

upgraded secure digital radio communication system at Kailaras and
Chainsa Compressor Stations, catering to the mobile and control

partner, Consort Digital, who together with the project main
contractor, Icon Control, will be responsible for supply,
installation, integration and commissioning of the entire project,
as an integrated part of the overall telecom system.
With DAMM's TetraFlex® solution, the requirements of
GAIL for a feature rich, reliable and safe communication system
will be fully met. The important factor in choosing the
TetraFlex® solution is the completely IP-based and
distributed network architecture that provides the much needed
fault tolerance to the communication network, with no single point

integrated to different types of telecom backbone including Optical
Fiber. PABX Gateway ensures full connectivity to the PABX network
at each compressor station across the pipeline.
Mr. Per Skovsund, Director of System Business at DAMM comments :
"We see an increasingly focus within the oil and gas industry for
secure and failsafe communications, and are pleased that again the
TetraFlex® solution has proven to be the ideal choice,
due to its distributed IP network architecture, leaving no single
point of failure of the system."
