MANAGING ‘TRAIN-TO-EARTH’ HEAVY COMMUNICATIONS - A Middleware Software to Manage Broadband Wireless Communications in the Railway Scope

Abstract

This paper illustrates the strategy followed for the management of broadband wireless communications in a hybrid network (mobile/radio). This management allows the optimization of both bandwidth and transmission rate of the applications deployed in the ground control stations (terrestrial applications) and on-board systems (train applications). It also describes the general aspects of a ‘train-to-earth’ communications architecture, which allows an easy and standard integration of applications both new and legacy.
