Course Summary

GSM-R end of life is anticipated to be around 2030 which only leaves a few years to find a replacement system.  The International Union of Railways (UIC) have published a document called FRMCS- Future Railway Mobile Communications System which outlines what will be required of a future system.  The document does not describe the replacement technology it is essentially a wish list of what a future technology should be capable of doing.  The railway community have detailed the communications requirements of the future railway networks and are looking for telecommunications manufacturers and standards bodies to provide a suitable solution.

This This FRMCS (Future Railway Mobile Communications System) training course looks at the documents published by the UIC to gain an understanding of the requirements of a future communications system.  One of the challenges faced by the railways is the lack of radio spectrum so the course analyses the current spectrum options.  This leads to an overview of how 5G  could be a potential candidate for FRMCS.
