Extended TitleHS2 Ltd Telecommunications System Pre­-Procurement Market Engagement
Extended Description

HS2 Ltd intends to procure a Rail Systems Telecommunications System.

The purpose of the Prior Information Notice ("PIN") is to issue a pre-market engagement questionnaire to understand the level of appetite within the market for the following requirements.

HS2 Ltd would like to engage with your organisation in order to:

a. Provide potential suppliers with an update on the scope and procurement approach;

b. Give potential suppliers the opportunity to give feedback on HS2 Ltd.’s intended approach;

c. Test market appetite to bid for the Telecommunications system procurements.

HS2 Ltd currently proposes splitting telecommunications systems into two distinct contracts. Some sub-systems have relatively well-defined communications requirements; others are dependent on the future technology choices, as well as more complex contracting solutions.

The proposed scope of each contract is as follows:

• HS2 Operational Telecommunications - HS2 Ltd owned and managed assets procured under a Design & Build contract (DB), with a term services arrangement to cover technical support. These assets will typically consist of equipment that is required for the operational railway service, including:

O Data Transmission Network

O Telephony system

O Tunnel radio system

O Telecommunication masts

O Equipment buildings

O Interface management and coordination with other HS2 systems needing to use the telecommunications network and its assets.

Physical Security - HS2 Ltd is also considering the potential scope extension of the HS2 Operational Telecommunications contract to include physical security elements.

These may be offered separately or in combination, and would include:

O Security System Master Integrator

O Security Applications Delivery

O Open Line of Route Trackside Security Delivery

O Security Technology Provision

• HS2 Third Party Telecommunications – Third Party managed assets under a Design, Build, Maintain and Operate procurement model. This would incorporate the potential for commercial exploitation alongside agreement from HS2 Ltd to utilise certain HS2 assets to provide external telecommunication services. This contract includes:

O Passenger communication systems

O Emergency Services Network

O Station Data Network (fixed, operational Wi-Fi and public Wi-Fi)

O Non-rail/other communication services
