Smart City IoT Project Launches for New York City DoT

By Ken Briodagh

Transition Networks, a provider of IoT and edge connectivity solutions, recently announced the start of an intelligent transportation project with New York City’s transportation agency to connect, power and manage traffic data via its hardened TAA-compliant, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE+) switches. This application is designed to deploy intelligent transportation infrastructure citywide and reinforce the relevance and timeliness of Transition Networks’ strategy of developing Smart City Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

Transition Networks’ PoE solution will connect and power cameras and sensors at over 10,000 traffic intersections that collect this vital information. In addition, key features on the Transition Networks’ switches reportedly will save the agency time and costs associated with maintenance. Currently, if a device stops working at an intersection, the agency must take multiple actions to repair. These lane closures cause significant stress and traffic delays for motorists.

Transition Networks’ Auto Power Reset (APR) feature provides the ability to remotely reboot or manage Transition Networks’ equipment fixing the issue within minutes and eliminating all of the lane closure requirements.

The included Device Management System (DMS) software is designed to create an interactive map to see all connected devices, enabling the agency to pinpoint issues and quickly take action. DMS has been an important function for several smart city projects including an installation at New York City’s Brooklyn Bridge.

“Installing smart devices across cities allows transit agencies to enact changes that improve safety and traffic flow; our solution provides the power and connection to make it all possible,” said Anita Kumar, Director, Product Management and Software Engineering, Transition Networks. “Smart device installation will grow in importance as transit agencies look to improve service, create efficiencies and increase quality of life for growing cities and we are excited to be an integral part of this project.”
