5G is offering many technological advances throughout the world in other industries in terms of cellular reliability, so why not apply these advantages to the railway systems as well? Technologically speaking, 5G acts as a consolidator for the entire G range of networks. However, 5G is offering an entire generational shift that allows for 1ms of latency and 1Gbps download speeds, which is a considerable improvement over the former 4G.
Nokia and Digitale Schiene Deutschland have analysed various architectural options and features available in 5G and their suitability for new use-cases in railway operations. Read this whitepaper for more information.
