Program released for ETSI's rail radio workshop

The program for ETSI’s future radio for rail transport workshop is now available.

The ‘Developing the Future Radio for Rail Transport’ workshop will take place from 4–5 July 2018 at ETSI, Sophia Antipolis, France.

All stakeholders interested in the workshop are urged to participate. The event will be structured around the following sessions:

  • Setting the scene
  • Requirements/seeds for guided rail
  • Investigate future or other technologies’ attractiveness
  • Seeking synergies on standardisation with road/aviation/public safety
  • Long-term vision and issues to overcome

ETSI held its first workshop on the next-generation radio for rail in November 2016. This second ETSI workshop intends to give an update on the activities related to the future of radio for rail transport worldwide. Today, work on the future rail communication system has progressed not only in Europe but also in other regions of the world.

The ETSI Technical Committee for Rail Telecommunications (TC RT) is working on the definition of a FRMCS system architecture (reference model) in coordination with relevant organisations such as UIC (International Union of Railways), Shift2Rail and ERA (EU Agency for Railways). ETSI continues to work on the Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) use cases and related potential requirements in coordination with 3GPP.
