As a next generation of Global System for Mobile communications Railway (GSM-R), 3rd Generation Partnership Program (3GPP) Long Term Evolution (LTE)/ LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) is considered for railroad wireless communication, i.e., LTE-Railway (LTE-R). Railroad wireless communication has its own requirements and functions since railroad wireless communication is very closely related to safety. In order to meet the requirements of LTE-R and provide high Quality-of-Service (QoS) level, it is very crucial to have very small packet delivery delay.
