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.
