LTE Based Telecommunication System for Urban-guided Transports

The traffic control and management of urban guided-transport system such as tramways and subways are based on several intelligent transportation (IT) services having high data communication requirements, which are, today, carried over several different telecommunication infrastructures. In order to support existing as well as emerging IT services over a unique communication infrastructure, it is mandatory to ensure efficient QoS management that meets the requirements of management applications and especially the safety-critical ones. This paper presents an evaluation of the performances offered by a LTE (Long Term Evolution) based communication system for urban guided-transport. The authors focus on the performances of the QoS provisioning mechanism configured for the requirements of a set of signalling and management IT services. The performance evaluation is based on the well-known telecommunication simulator OPNET.
