TRANSPORTATION Intelligent Transportation Systems
The need for intelligent transportation systems has become a top priority for municipalities across the world to improve traffic monitoring and public safety. One of the core underlying technologies that allow these systems to be networked back to a traffic operations center is Ethernet.
In modern transportation systems the amount of diagnostic data increases steadily, and particularly with the use of video surveillance the bandwidth demand increases. For increased data capacity in a network, Ethernet is the solution. The possibilities of an Ethernet network are enormous. Almost any device with an Ethernet port can be connected. Suitable communications equipment includes industrial embedded computers, industrial Ethernet switches and IP cameras with EN50155 and EN50121-1/2 certification to confirm their resilience in harsh environments, and fortified wireless devices to bring it all together. Outdoor devices should feature fast roaming technology, power redundancy, weatherproof, dustproof, and a wide operating temperature design.
