The objective of the@AVE project is to demonstrate the technical and commercial viability of the broadband internet access in the Spanish high-speed train, which reaches speeds higher than 200 km/h. The access is carried out by the an interior access thanks to IEEE 802.11-based standards, and the exterior segment is built by a satellite access, which can attain better performance thanks to the use of antenna arrays. The project is focused in the short-term application, so that the technology is supported by pilot tests in the line Madrid-Sevilla.
