Abstract: Alcatel is pioneering the implementation of an open Radio Frequency (RF) communication technology, based on the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.11 Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) standard, for trains moving in excess of 120 km/h. Whether it is used for Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC) or Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), IEEE 802.11 is the preferred choice as it is the only standard that supports mobility and protects against obsolescence. Alcatel adopted the 802.11 FHSS technology in 1999, since then it has carried out several trials and demonstrations.
