The issue of bad Internet coverage on trains is discussed  in an article in Upsala Nya Tidning. Train commuters resent not having uninterrupted access to the web whils travelling on popular distances such as Stockholm-Uppsala. Telia and SJ will extend the 4G network at some distances, including Stockholm-Uppsala, but will this mean that commuters are in for a smoother surf experience? Read what Wireless@KTH Director Claes Beckman has to say about it:

About the workshop:

Common predictions show that by the year 2015 the traffic traversing the access segment will be 25-30 times larger than today. Extrapolating this trend to 2020 would yield a thousand-fold increase in traffic.

Meeting this demand, with today’s wireless and fixed broadband access solutions, would lead to an unacceptable increase in the network power consumption. For this reason, finding a way to lower the energy consumption of the access segment is a problem whose solution is of the outmost importance as we speak.

This workshop aims at creating a forum where experts from both academia and industry will have an opportunity to present and discuss the latest advances in the field of green broadband access networks where both wired and wireless access solutions will be covered.
