Redundant Communications


Project Description


A major portion of current ITS communication infrastructure is permanently installed. Long-range connections are typically via fiber optic communications. There are situations where fiber optic backbone communications may not be available. Fiber may not yet be installed or construction activities may have portions of fiber out of service or not yet in service for extended periods of time. Additionally, areas of interest for CCTV surveillance or traffic volume tracking may be off the main fiber routes and require a bridge back to the communication backbone.


All of the above situations, and others not listed, provide opportunities to deploy ITS components via wireless connections on either a temporary or permanent basis.
