GSM-R for Europe and the Rest of the World

Purchase

GSM-Railway is an international wireless communications standard for railway communication and applications. A sub-system of European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS), it is used for communication between train and railway regulation control centers. The system is based on GSM and EIRENE – MORANE specifications which guarantee performance at speeds up to 500 km/h (310 mph), without any communication loss.

Planning a GSM-R network is different from a regular GSM network because the basestations do not cover a two dimensional area but rather a long, almost one-dimensional railway line. Also, requirements are stricter for GSM-R and Quality of Service must be guaranteed at all times at very high speeds to ensure safe operation.

The report tracks the GSM-R market development as it continues to grow in Europe and keeps attracting new supporters in other regions. However, as GSM itself is starting to phase out, the report discusses the effect on GSM-R and possible evolution roadmap.
