    The migration of railway signaling systems based on circuit switching toward Internet protocol (IP) is on the way. Consequently, new strategies to promote reliability in packet-?switching networks must be studied. In this article, we propose the use of multipath technology to enhance the availability and reliability of these communications. To our knowledge, this is the first time that multipath s...

    It has been projected that, in the next decade, a mobile traffic increase on the order of 1,000 times is expected compared to what we experience today. To meet that dramatic traffic growth, next-generation mobile networks are also expected to achieve a 1,000-fold capacity increase compared to the current generation of wireless network deployments. In this article, we discuss how such capacity grow... View full abstract»
