Abstract
Railway environments cannot be away from the current evolution of public communication systems. The Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile communication system is considered to be the natural evolution for current Global System for Mobile Communications Railways (GSM-R). LTE all IP networking technology plays a key role for the integration and convergence of heterogeneous networks and services, both the specific for railway operative and the commercial broadband ones for passengers. The adoption of a new generation standard for railway communication must be based on an exhaustive feasibility study of the new system to become the railway mobile communication system. In this paper, LTE top challenges to address the specific requirements and features of railway communication services are evaluated. Under this scope, LTE features to implement the required railway functionalities, LTE technical challenges, spectrum harmonization, network deployment considerations and LTE capabilities to meet the railway service Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS) requirements, are assessed.
