Field hardened communications for ITS
RuggedCom will use its appearance at the ITS America Annual Meeting to highlight a range of field hardened communications products for ITS. As the company points out, creating a reliable, citywide communication network to meet the demand for real-time information and support the growing need for mobility is no easy feat. But its solution, which will be featured on the company’s booth, can ease the pain; WiMax 4G Broadband can cost effectively extend the network and seamlessly integrate into existing infrastructure.
WiMax 4G broadband technology can operate in the 4.9 GHz public safety spectrum, providing agencies with the tools they need to build out their own private wireless network. By integrating into an existing fiber backbone, features like standalone mobility (SAM) eliminate the need for costly ASN gateways and PoE power ensures that WiMax is easy to deploy and maintain. It also has the ability to customize quality of service (QoS) levels, providing upload ratios of up to 70% - a critical feature for delivering video data from the field. And busses fitted with subscriber radios can easily travel throughout the coverage areas providing real-time GPS location updates, as well as other useful information, back to the TMC so routes can be optimized.
RuggedCom says that WiMax 4G Broadband provides municipalities with the technology they need to create large coverage areas, with quick deployment times and that extra kick a network needs to support future applications.
