Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Trains are particularly challenging for mobile networks as they contain large numbers of users intensively accessing the network. The passage of a train causes spikes in network utilization and continuously requires the reallocation of resources. To effectively and efficiently evaluate, simulate and improve mobile networks, it is necessary to characterize the network utilization of train passengers. In this paper, we propose network utilization models for train passengers and non-train users based on the analysis of LTE signaling data. The models reveal that train passengers consume 3.5 times more resources than non-train users and confirm that trains have a significant influence on mobile networks. The models can be used to create realistic network simulations.
