Mobile broadband Internet access is an important issue for next generation networks. Users not only want to access their broadband services and applications at home but also en-route. This is technically challenging especially in the transportation environment as it has to deal with high mobility and many customers. The “Broadband Wireless Internet Access in Public Transportation” (BIT) project will solve these challenges. In particular the project focuses on the issues of mobility, land infrastructure, authentication, authorisation and accounting (AAA), security, novel transport protocols and the vehicle-land connectivity within such a transportation environment. This paper gives an overview of the project as well as an insight into the different areas of research.
