Turning Need Into Demand for Wi-Fi Broadband Internet Access on Trains

Nowadays, it is the demand of every internet user to stay connected most of the time even if the user is on the move. The core focus of this paper is on internet connectivity with moving vehicles. Wireless internet access on trains is not a standardized technology yet, therefore, it has diverse and vendor specific architecture. The authors have presented the physical architecture of internet access on moving vehicles, specifically trains and the logical architecture to give a clear idea that how the service will work at each layer of TCP/IP protocol stack. In order to observe the data rates offered on board, and experience Wi-Fi internet access onboard, the authors chose Great North Eastern Railway (GNER) route from London Kings Cross station till Peterborough (UK).
