Internet On-The-Move
Key Considerations Challenges: Data connectivity of a moving bus Service availability, coverage Achieving adequate bandwidth Variations in field strength, latency, throughput IP address management Handover speed and session persistence Security Remote management Scalability Conclusion: - Advanced multi-uplink routing technology required - Hand-Over and Load Balancing improve solution

Strategy
Broadband Internet On-The-Move Software-Centric Approach Wireless Technology Agnostic LTE, 3G, EDGE, WiFi Multipath Handover Routing and Dynamic Load Balancing Open Source Solution Linux Capability to Integrate with Other On-Board IP-systems Platforms for Specific Verticals (Railway, Bus, Public Safety) Platform Compliance with Relevant Standards, CE, EN50155, 50121, 61373, e etc. Remote Management Support

Topology
Modes of Operation Uplink Connection
VPN Handover Mode Applications: Condition Based Maintenence, Operative Systems, AFC-systems => Increase coverage and service availability One uplink with VPN (IPSEC) used at a time All available uplinks are in standby with VPN open Immediate and transparent handover with connection persistence Connections managed based on link availability, response time,and performance Dynamic Load Balancing Mode Application: Passenger WiFi Service, PIS, Video Surveillance => Increase bandwidth and coverage Load balancing on uplink and downlink All links are used together to increase bandwidth (not speed) Traffic dynamically allocated to available uplinks

Overview
What is Load Balanced Link Bonding? Combining multiple 3G/EDGE up-links into one single high capacity connection Load balancing and bonding on both up- and down-link Uplinks qualified dynamically to determine optimal balancing Network sees only one single connection Each uplink has its own VPN for traffic Packets distributed dynamically to all uplink VPNs based on intelligent algorithm Back-end Gateway Server combines distributed packets together Router takes advantage of maximal available cellular capacity at all times Link loss will cause packets to be distributed to remaining available links Continuous connection and session persistence

Network Coverage
How Many Uplinks are Needed? Achieved data capacities 2-5Mbit/s downstream and 0,5-1 Mbit/s upstream (HSPA+ service)
Total Time 3347s No Internet Connection Available 1s Internet Connection 3346s (100%) Good communication on all 3G Uplinks 2397s No communication available Operator 1 83s No communication available Operator 2 8s No communication available Operator 3 12s

100% coverage combining three different operators
