Abstract

Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a serious candidate for the future releases of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS). LTE offers more capacity and supports new communication-based applications and services for railways. Nevertheless, even with this technology, the classical macro-cell radio deployments reach overload, especially in high-density areas, such as major train stations. In this paper, an LTE micro-cell deployment is investigated in high-density railway areas. Copenhagen Main Station is considered as a realistic deployment study case, with a set of relevant railway communication-based applications. The micro-cell deployment is compared with a classical macro-cell deployment in terms of transmission performance. Simulation results show a capacity improvement in the micro-cell deployment and its positive impact on critical (safety) and non-critical applications.
