Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 329)


The paper deals with problems of delays, queues, interferences and interrupts in open radio transmission standards (GPS, GSM-R) applied in railway control and management systems including Advanced Train Control/Protection\. These systems apply the wireless networks transmitting the signal between different dissipated objects and safety transmission standards require such time related analysis based on mathematical methods (Markov processes).
