A Remote Power Management Solution for Transportation Applications

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

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.

Managing Remote Network Elements in Transportation Applications

Friday, September 6th, 2013

In modern Intelligent Transportation Systems, traffic managers rely heavily on a network of sensors, cameras and other devices spread throughout the vast maze of freeways and highways to help keep traffic moving smoothly. These networked devices are used to ensure that traffic signals are operating properly, toll plazas are able to rapidly collect tolls and freeway alert systems continue to monitor traffic and keep drivers informed. When a networked device in an Intelligent Transportation System becomes unresponsive, administrators also need a means to reboot networked transportation system elements without the delays and expenses of a physical service call or truck roll.
