A Compact Remote Reboot Solution for Intelligent Transportation System Applications

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

When working correctly, an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) provides both system administrators and drivers with a clearer picture of traffic conditions on the road ahead. System administrators can monitor traffic levels and potential problems using devices such traffic cams and inductive loop detection systems, and then pass that information along to drivers via variable message signs and radio alerts. When a malfunctioning Ethernet switch or other networked device at a roadside enclosure disrupts network communication with networked ITS elements, administrators need a reliable switched PDU solution for rebooting devices in remote roadside enclosures, before that network outage results in traffic tie-ups.

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.
