There is a increasing demand for high speed data services while travelling on trains and other means of public transportation. Hence, an alternative technology to radio frequency (RF) communications called free space optics (FSO) could be used to provide truly high-speed broadband services in trains. This paper presents a Lambertian source modelling of FSO ground-to-train communication link along with its link performance analysis. Here, we investigate the use of a single optical base station (BS) that can provide the coverage range up to 75 m at 10 Mbps using on off keying (OOK) non-return to zero (NRZ) data signal with a bit error rate (BER) of 10-6 .
