Keywords: Building, ACM, train, single knife edge, QAM,


This paper focused at communication systems when train moved. The communication propagation was influenced by building environment. The communication condition that used uplink direction. Mobile station was placed inside the train where moved with 500 km/hour velocity. The analysis was used consists of Doppler effect, atmospheric, and building environment. The variation communication frequency was used consists of 2.6 GHz, 5 GHz, and 10 GHz. Diffraction mechanism caused building was used single knife edge method. The result was showed SNR value from the communication frequency variation, distance comparison between LOS and NLOS, alteration adaptive modulation and coding (AMC), and coverage area percentage. Modulation and Coding Scheme (MCS) was used for AMC consists of QPSK, 16 QAM, and 64 QAM. Decreases of SNR value can be occured when communication distance for NLOS condition farther then LOS condition. That distance became increases because was obstructed with high building. Changeable of AMC value was caused propagation condition. The coverage area percentage when communication frequency that was used consists of 2.6 GHz, 5 GHz, and 10 GHz was obtained 88.4%, 88.4%, and 81.7%.
