    The increase of efficiency within wireless train control systems is essential. The circuit-switched technologies actually used will not provide the needed transmission quality for ERTMS/ETCS if the number of concurrent users increases as prognosticated until 2015. The promising solution might be the packet-switched approach of GPRS, but there are still a lot of open questions to be answered; mostl... View full abstract»
