Simrex is displaying equipment that addresses two of the ITS sector’s bigger concerns: data security and smart infrastructures.
The new ESS-IV is an unlicensed wireless radio which offers cyber security using 256 bit encryption with auto key rotation and can double as a Wi-Fi access point. Data rates are up to 1.25Mbps, the line-of-sight range is up to 30 miles and the unit offers non-invasive interrogation without interrupting the data flow.
It is suitable for SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) traffic/ITS systems, video over-IP, mobile network access, as a gateway for legacy networks and for long range megabit-speed wireless Ethernet.
For agencies considering installing smart infrastructure for connected vehicles, Simrex offers the DM WB-G58N wideband integrated data link. Units could be placed at one to 1.5 mile intervals while in rural locations pole-mounted coverage can be five miles (or up to 30 miles as a wireless bridge). The 5.8gHz unlicensed unit offer data rates of up to 300Mbps, uses power over Ethernet and is fitted with two bright LEDs allowing technicians to confirm from ground level that the unit is operating and data is flowing.
