About the Project

11.6 km long, the Mont Blanc Tunnel connects France and Italy under the highest peak in Europe since 1965. More than a work of art, the Mont Blanc Tunnel represents a tremendous human and technical adventure. In addition to being a major axis for the local economy, a link between peoples, it is today a world reference in terms of safety.

The renewal of Mont-Blanc Tunnel’s radio coverage system has been awarded to the temporary consortium SEE TELECOM / SAITEL TELECOMUNICAZIONI in June 2017.

To enhance the global security of the tunnel crossing, GEIE TMB decided to give its confidence to the European leader of radio coverage systems in confined areas SEE TELECOM, and the Italian leader of radio infrastructure’s installation and maintenance SAITEL TELECOMUNICAZIONI.

The scope of work is to enhance the following 26 services FM, VHF and UHF :

  • 3 TETRAPOL VHF
  • 6 Italian FM Channels
  • 6 French FM Channels
  • 1 UHF
  • 10 TETRA UHF Services

A new monitoring system SEE AMCE, and a new emergency messages insertion system SEE BICE, fully virtualized, will be installed in the full redundant GEIE TMB‘s computer servers.

The commissioning has been finalized in Spring 2018.
