MANTRA (Millimetre-wave Access Networks for TRAins)
WiFi data transmission speeds between trackside and train does not provide sufficient capacity to support the government level commitment for WiFi to all rail users. This project sought to develop and trial a transmission solution to allow mmWave high speed data transmission trackside to train, raising data rates to in excess of 400 Mbps and increasing available bandwidth. mmWave technology has high data transfer rates and is the basis of proposed 5G mobile phone technology. This project adapted existing hardware technology.
