High Data Rate ICT Network Modelling
This project aims to provide a train-wide infotainment system for all the passengers based on Information and Communications Technology (ICT). The services offered can vary from local news, destination information, and access to audio-visual data. The biggest challenge here lies in the fact that we must provide a flexible wireless network (involving technologies such as WiFi, LTE etc.) which can handle the harsh environment of railway operation including fast changes in the radio channel due to the travel at high speeds and through areas where cellular coverage is very much limited. There is also a problem of interference from other systems which can degrade the data-rates significantly. Gensys offers system modelling using realistic 3D channel models to simulate high mobility, complex and realistic areas such as open fields, hilly regions, tunnels etc.
