Small problems with networked devices in traffic signal control enclosures can quickly escalate into huge traffic problems. When a sensor or signal timing device in a street corner traffic signal control enclosure crashes or becomes unresponsive and causes a traffic signal to malfunction the result is often a massive traffic tie up that quickly spreads in all directions. In cases like this, an immediate solution to the problem is mandatory; there isn’t time to wait for a service team to arrive on site. Fortunately, a network power switch can provide a means to deal with equipment problems in remote traffic signal enclosures immediately.

When a network device in a traffic signal control enclosure crashes or becomes unresponsive, network administrators race to restore normal operation before traffic jams up completely. In cases like this, there isn’t time to wait for a service team to arrive on site; administrators need a means to correct the problem immediately, without the need for a physical service call. The most effective way to deal with a situation like this is to include a network power switch in the traffic signal control enclosure in order to enable administrators to remotely reboot networked devices.
