Internet-on-the-train is a rising concept in the last few years. Several trials in different countries have proved the feasibility of offering Internet access to train commuters, but none of them combines broadband access, scalability, seamless handover and quality of service guarantees in one solution. In this paper, we propose a new architecture to satisfy these needs. Using real handover measurement data of several common broadband wireless technologies, we compare two possible inter-working mobility solutions: Mobile Multi-Path SCTP (MMP-SCTP) and Mobile IP (MIP).
