Real Wireless has put together a short guide assessing wireless on trains with far reaching recommendations for ensuring connectivity remains on track.
Wireless connectivity on trains is set to become a key area of focus for the wireless industry over the coming years. Pressure is rising from governments and passengers to improve the current levels of wireless service available. In this report we discuss the technical challenges associated with providing on-board connectivity and lay down recommendations on what can be done to overcome these obstacles.
Enhanced on-board wireless solutions face two major barriers. The first is how to enable cellular connectivity. The second is how to secure sufficient capacity for on-train usage and the necessary backhaul where on-train Wi-Fi is installed. While the technologies are available today to solve these challenges, the business case for moving connectivity along remains largely elusive.
