Abstract

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) aim at improving daily travel experience. There are many promising communication technologies that could provide some ITS services. So far they have been predominantly evaluated from the technical point of view. This paper contributes a techno-economic evaluation of a case study on dedicated Radio Access Network (RAN) for public ITS. We analyze, calculate and compare Capital (CapEx) and Operational Expenditures (OpEx) for four different ITS-enabling wireless technologies: Ultra High Frequency standard, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) 802.11p and LTE. This paper expands our results from Grigoryev et al. (2015). Here, we discuss in more details RAN planning and generalize legislation-driven cost influence on CapEx for DSRC and LTE deployments.
