applications Simulation scenario of
a real railway line in Denmark How to address
these challenges? Our main research question: affected by 3 elements ETCS requirements:
received signal strength
message delay
delivery success rate ETCS supervision ETCS on board ailways higher
utilization support for advanced data services higher
throughput Insufficient capacity Low
utilization Limited support for data services communication
designed for

LTE Current results An overview of GSM-R technology and its shortcomings. Impact of the LTE radio access topology on the performance of ETCS signaling. Data integrity of ETCS signaling delivered over LTE network. Performance of LTE in high speed railway scenarios. Contact:
