Installation of a computer for the adaptation of transmission protocols between the electronic interlocking in Torralba station and the line of remote control transmission.
  • Equipment in all stations of Sigüenza-Ariza route of a digital transmission system PDH (Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy) to 8 Mbit /s.
  • Equipment of a backbone from Guadalajara to Zaragoza with transmission system SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy) to 155 Mbit /s.
