Communications Architecture

The communications network of the proposed architecture is able to interconnect all the devices, as fixed - CCs, RSUs, etc- as mobile ones -vehicles- . The infrastructure communications (I2I) are mainly based on existing technologies: IP-networks over Ethernet or using advanced protocols such as MPLS (MultiProtocol Label Switching) which are able to guarantee the desired functionality, QoS and security.

These channels are implemented on the physical level using fiber optic. Additionally, the use of DMB (Digital Media Broadcasting) and DVB-H (Digital Video Broadcasting) will provide broadcast and multicast tools used basically for the dissemination of information or control commands to infrastructure elements such as Variable Message Signs (VMS) or sensors. Furthermore, the network which provides the communications with vehicles (I2V, V2X) is presented on the following figure:
