High Quality Broad Band Internet Service in High Speed Train Using Radiate

IJEECC Front Page

In the last 25-30 years, wireless communications have become an essential part of people’s lives all over the globe. People are relying highly on internet in their daily life due to the explosive growth of Internet-based applications and services. Internet services in moving vehicles are also very important nowadays. The major problem faced now is providing broadband connections in high speed trains moving at 500-600kmph with reduced handover problems. Hence providing high quality broadband internet services in high-speed trains also become more important. In this paper we propose the method of modified RADio- over- Fiber as AnTenna Extender (RADIATE) for providing high speed train communication for the users. This technique is and extender of cellular networks to avoid high capital expenditure in providing broadband Internet services. RADIATE employs on-roof antennas and operate these antennas by utilizing the cellular networks as backhauls. The modified RADIATE uses optical fiber which is 1550nm fiber optic that has the loss range of about 0.25 db/km. Hence the handover problems are solved to an extent and also provides constant channel to the requested users efficiently. Thus the cost effective and high quality of broadband internet services is provided in high-speed trains.
