Siemens Ruggedcom eliminates need to rip out old cabling

First publishedin ITS World Congress

Day 3

As municipalities struggle to decide what to do with out-dated cabling slowing down their transportation communications infrastructure, Siemens Ruggedcom thinks it may have a cost-effective solution: simply convert old coaxial cables to Ethernet over DSL.

Called Very-High Bit Rate Digital Subscriber Line (VDSL2), RuggedCom’s switches speed up traffic flowing over existing copper wiring to 85 megabits per second—not fast enough to reliably carry high-def video but more than fast enough for typical transportation-related data.

According to Vivek Umasuthem, a product manager for Siemens Ruggedcom, the increased speed eliminates
the need for municipalities to replace existing coaxial or telephone wiring with expensive fiber. And when the time does come for an upgrade, Ruggedcom’s switches include fiber ports that can accommodate one gigabit per second speeds.
