Abstract

Currently, railway wireless communication systems adopt several communication schemes depending on the specific region. To increase data rate and achieve high fidelity in railway wireless communication systems, LTE-R scheme has been developed. In this paper, We introduce interoperability technology which converges several railway communication systems including LTE-R. First, we consider two interoperability methods and their standardization. Some empirical test results of interoperability technology are also introduced. It is expected to provide seamless and statable railway communication environments by applying interoperability technologies to railway wireless communication systems.

현재 우리나라의 철도 무선통신시스템은 각 지역에 따라 서로 다른 통신방식을 사용하고 있다. 철도 무선통신시스템에서 데이터의 전송률을 높이고 고신뢰성을 확보하기 위해 LTE-R방식의 도입이 연구되고 있다. 본 논문에서는 LTE-R방식을 포함한 다양한 철도통신 방식을 연동하는 기술 개발에 대해 소개한다. 먼저 다양한 철도통신 방식을 연동하는 두 가지방식의 개념 및 표준에 대해 소개한다. 또한 연동방안에 대한 실제 실험결과에 대해서도 일부 소개한다. 본 논문에서 소개하는 연동 기술을 철도 무선통신망에 적용함으로써 끊김 없고 안정적인 철도 무선통신환경이 제공될 것으로 예상된다.
