Role within 5G-VICTORI​

Based on 3GPP next generation mission critical (MC) services standards and pre-standard FRMCS (Future Railway Mobile Communication System) services, Kontron Transportation will contribute with integration of a services framework and clients into the common platform and applying mission critical and complementary non-mission critical services to demonstrate railway vertical service scenarios. Focus is validation of MC based FRMCS concepts with 5G network capabilities, in particular Quality of Service (QoS) management capabilities. Multiple classes of rail services with separated flows and different availability- and mobility-characteristics are validated to be efficiently transported and monitored in a 5G network environment. Resulting outcomes of integration and validation activities are considered to be contributed in ETSI RT and 3GPP MC standard process for FRMCS for 5G.
