Richard Wood of Moxa with the video stream recovery technology
Moxa unveiled new technologies to improve network reliability for smart transportation applications at the ITS America Annual Meeting and Expo. V-On “Video Always On” is a video stream recovery technology on Moxa’s latest Ethernet switches that provides 50 ms redundancy for multicast video streams when used with Moxa’s Turbo Ring or Turbo Chain.
“It can take several seconds for the video stream to resume after a network interruption even if the network itself recovers immediately,” explains Richard Wood, product manager at Moxa Americas. “With a simple configuration setting, Moxa’s V-On technology enables the video stream to resume almost as quickly as the network itself. This helps ensure the highest level of real-time reliability for mission-critical video surveillance applications.”
The demo video of V-On in action, shown at the Moxa booth, can be viewed online at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=upGbhfqYXt4 Moxa’s WDR-3124A, a combo Wi-Fi and cellular router designed to enable extremely rugged and reliable remote access to critical vehicle and passenger data, was also featured at the Annual Meeting. Four built-in Ethernet ports consolidate IP-based communications between the various onboard devices, sensors and cameras, and the built-in cellular interface transmits critical live data while in transit. When the vehicle is back at the lot or service center, the built-in Wi-Fi interface connects directly with the control center to share all accumulated onboard data.
“The combination of communication interfaces on the WDR-3124A makes it an ideal choice for fleet operators that are incorporating smart IP-based connectivity into their existing vehicles,” notes Wood.
