In this work we explore the feasibility of implementing infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V) communication through the UMTS infrastructure. We identify the problems that arise when providing I2V services on top of legacy UMTS networks as conceived in 3GPP Release 5 and consider an I2V architecture that exploits a new feature introduced by 3GPP Release 6, namely the multimedia broadcast/multicast services (MBMS). By means of an analytical model, we quantify the performance achievable with both releases in some realistic scenarios. We show that MBMS is able to provide I2V services efficiently on top of the UMTS network.

Abstract

In this work we explore the feasibility of implementing infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V) communication through the UMTS infrastructure. We identify the problems that arise when providing I2V services on top of legacy UMTS networks as conceived in 3GPP Release 5 and consider an I2V architecture that exploits a new feature introduced by 3GPP Release 6, namely the multimedia broadcast/multicast services (MBMS). By means of an analytical model, we quantify the performance achievable with both releases in some realistic scenarios. We show that MBMS is able to provide I2V services efficiently on top of the UMTS network.
