Reboot Unresponsive Network Elements in Remote Traffic Signal Equipment Enclosures

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

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.

Reboot Network Elements in Intelligent Traffic System Applications

Friday, September 27th, 2013

Intelligent Traffic Systems provide a formidable challenge for network administration. A typical Intelligent Traffic System in a large, sprawling metropolitan area might include hundreds or even thousands of roadside network equipment boxes spread across miles of roads, streets and highways. When a network device in one of these roadside enclosures malfunctions, system administrators need a means to quickly reboot the malfunctioning device and restore normal operation before traffic problems result. Fortunately, a Switched PDU can provide administrators with the capability to reboot networked devices in remote roadside equipment boxes, without the delay and expense associated with a physical service call.

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.
