Transportation Solutions

Robust Communication Solutions for Intelligent Transportation Systems

Coordinating traffic, staying on top of its ebbs and flows, is a complex, demanding task for emergency support personnel, city planners, and transportation system operators everywhere. 

Reliable network communications are a critical necessity for monitoring and managing increasingly complex transportation infrastructures. Knowing what is happening and where, from tracking buses and trains on their routes, to locating and addressing stalled vehicles, to connecting drivers with important information about road and traffic conditions – effective traffic management demands intelligent transportation systems.

Urban Communications

Pedestrians, cyclists, cars, trucks, light rail, transit vehicles – urban transportation networks present city planners with unique challenges. 

Creating intelligent transportation can be complex and challenging, Madison provides a broad array of networking solutions that help cities address these challenges and achieve their goals – quickly and cost-effectively.

 

 

> Solution Highlights

  • Ethernet over VDSL (EoVDSL), a cost-effective solution for transmitting Ethernet data over existing copper wiring, enables you to reuse legacy infrastructure to deliver broadband speeds.
  • High bandwidth, multiservice backbones with 10 GigE uplinks, advanced Layer 3, MPLS and PIM-SM multicast routing services for managing video traffic
  • Compact, fiber optic switches with Power over Ethernet (PoE) for simplified device connectivity.

Interurban Communications

Geographically dispersed, covering many hundreds of kilometers of roadway, interurban networks are a unique challenge to manage. These interurban networks serve as a critical information backbone for the entire transportation infrastructure. 

Ensuring there is the significant bandwidth required to connect thousands of devices and support hundreds of real-time video feeds, along with data gathered from roadway sensors, is critical.

The impact of a network outage is significant. Without a reliable network, operators are unable to effectively manage and respond to an event. High reliability and operational uptime in extreme environments are key.

 

 

> Solution Highlights

  • The highest level of network security.
  • Outstanding reliability and scalability for future needs
  • Exceeds environmental conditions as defined by the NEMA TS 2 industry standard (ranging from ‑40° C to +74° C)
  • Long-haul fiber optics that provide high-bandwidth connectivity even for remote locations
  • Multiservice backbone with 10 GigE uplinks, advanced Layer 3 and MPLS routing services

Bridges and Tunnel Communications

Bridges and tunnels present unique safety challenges, including the risk of fast-moving fires, accelerated heating rates, the risk of structural collapse, and longer escape routes.

Accidents and closures can severely disrupt your city’s transportation systems. To protect public safety, improve availability and lower operational costs, your network subsystems need to interact seamlessly. You must be able to detect incidents early, perform rapid mitigation and recovery inside tunnels, and protect critical systems – all within regulatory requirements. 

Madison provides the transportation network solutions that our customers can depend on when they need them most. By combining offerings from other Madison Business units, we deliver a totally integrated automation solution for bridge and tunnel communications.

 

 

> Solution Highlights

  • Communication over a robust Ethernet backbone network from field elements up to the control room
  • Redundant networking through HSR/PRP
  • Integration of existing field bus installations and Industrial Ethernet 
  • 10 GigE to ensure high performance and minimize risk of technological obsolescence
  • Serial & POE Communications
