Minimizing GSM-R Interference

How Railway Operators Can Reduce Risk in Spite of Expanding 4G Networks

The Global System for Mobile Communications – Railway, known as GSM-R, defines a method for digital communication between trains and railway regulation-control centers. The standard supports a high degree of automation, and this in turn enables higher train speeds and greater traffic density, with a higher level of safety.

Using GSM-R, each time a train passes over a transponder (balise), the train’s exact speed and location are automatically transmitted to the control center. The control center then responds by specifying the train’s maximum allowed speed and by providing permission to enter the next track.

The GSM-R network is also used by railway personnel for private network communications and supports emergency call services, to warn trains of potential danger and coordinate assistance in case of an accident.
