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.
