Moxa, a leading manufacturer of communications equipment for harsh environments, today unveiled two new pieces of technology to improve network reliability for smart transportation applications.
MOXA V-ON TECHNOLOGY
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."
Also featured was 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. 4 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," according to Wood.
The technology featured at the ITS America Annual Meeting represents Moxa's continued expertise and investment in network communications for the transportation industry.
"We are moving to a world where pervasive IP-based technology is enabling smarter transportation, more efficient traffic routing, safer road conditions, and more," according to Wood. "We look forward to engaging with transportation integrators and DOTs to help them achieve the necessary level of communications reliability and flexibility."
Wood notes that Moxa products are actively used in transportation applications all over the world. In the USA, Moxa networking equipment was used in projects for the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority and CalTrans, among others.
