Transition Networks

Industrial Switching & Media Conversion

In-Vehicle Deployment – Gigabit PoE+ Industrial Switches

Transition Networks understands that the utmost importance of ITS applications is to ensure that the safety and security of passengers and equipment are maintained, which extends to onboard vehicle applications. Transition Networks offers a Power-over-Ethernet Plus (PoE+) switch that utilizes vehicle power to enable onboard video security and wireless services. The industrial PoE+ switch is a High Power Sourcing Equipment (PSE) device that complies with the IEEE802.3at standard, providing PoE over standard twisted pair cables in an Ethernet network. Operating from a wide-input power range of +12 to +48 VDC, the device was designed to provide communication services on-board vehicles, and its extended operating temperature range of -40 to +70 C allows the switch to be located outside of the environmentally conditioned passenger areas.

Traffic Control Signalling and Vehicle Detection – Managed Gigabit Industrial Switches

Traffic signal control systems are used to coordinate with the individual traffic signals that make up an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). These systems consist of traffic control signals, partnered with ground detection loops or other means of vehicle detection at intersections, and a robust communications network linking intersection controllers together, providing the ability to remotely manage and troubleshoot the traffic signal control system from a central location. Transition Networks’ hardened products are used to integrate the robust communications network and remote management system, which adhere to the Standard TCP/IP Ethernet protocol and run across the fibre-optic infrastructure.

Digital Signage and Traffic Notification – Gigabit Industrial Media Converters

Digital signage is an extension of the traffic control signalling and vehicle detection network, operating over the same mission-critical communication network and fibre-optic infrastructure to disseminate relevant driver information in order to reduce commute times and protect motorist safety.   The use of digital signage to notify drivers of accidents, emergencies, and commute times has become widespread throughout Intelligent Traffic Systems as it proves to be a concise and efficient communication tool. Transition Networks’ designs hardened devices with extended operating temperatures and small form factors designed for outdoor ITS applications.

Video Surveillance Network – Gigabit Industrial PoE+ Switches

Unlike traditional IP surveillance and property protection applications, video surveillance equipment within an Intelligent Transportation Systems is used to monitor the flow of traffic and to identify any accidents or traffic congestion on the road.  Due to the massive geographic coverage area, the harsh environmental exposure and the mission-critical nature of ITS surveillance networks, fibre-optics and hardened industrial rated equipment have become the choice for robust transportation systems. Transition Networks’ rugged PoE switches deliver the advanced Ethernet management, redundancy and network security features needed for ITS applications.
