A Remote Power Management Solution for Transportation Applications

When remote network elements in transportation applications crash or malfunction, the results are often traffic tie ups, unsafe driving conditions and loss of toll booth revenue. Even a brief interruption in the normal operation of a traffic signal, toll booth license plate reader or intelligent traffic system can quickly result in backed-up traffic, uncollected tolls and temporary loss of traffic monitoring capabilities. In cases like this, system administrators need a way to quickly correct network problems in roadside equipment enclosures and toll booths before conditions worsen to the point of all-out gridlock. Fortunately, WTI’s NPS-3F15 series Network Power Switches can provide a secure, reliable means to reboot network devices in transportation applications without the delays and expenses of a physical service call.

The main purpose of an intelligent transportation system is to ensure that traffic moves smoothly, without tie-ups, interruptions or delays. When network equipment problems interfere with the flow of traffic, problems can quickly mushroom as traffic slowdowns spread to adjacent surface streets in highways, resulting in a monumental traffic jam that might take hours to clear. Obviously quick response to minor problems is a key factor in ensuring the safe, speedy flow of traffic.

WTI’s NPS-3F15 series Network Power Switches are designed to provide ITS administrators and others with a prompt remedy for minor traffic system problems. The NPS-3F15 allows system administrators to immediately reboot unresponsive network elements without the need to wait for a service team to travel to the source of the problem. In addition to providing reliable, secure access to power reboot and power switching functions at remote traffic equipment enclosures, the NPS-3F15 also includes device monitoring and alarm capabilities that enable administrators to immediately detect potential problems at remote enclosures, before those problems grow to a point that interferes with the flow of traffic. If you’re searching for a way to deal with routine power reboots at remote network equipment sites, check out the compact, economical NPS-3F15 Network Power Switch today.
