Increased efficiency, reduced fatalities, and cost-effective, integrated systems are some of the mandates demanded of today’s highly developed transportation technologies. Perle products IP-enable a diverse range of transportation equipment to assist in maximizing these technologies.
Systems that utilize information processing, communications, and electronics such as Intelligent Transportation Systems, Rail Signals and Switches, Dynamic Message Signs, Amber Alerts and Flight Arrival/Departure Displays, all use Perle products to monitor and manage transportation and travel. The advanced technologies used today provide congestion relief, incident management, safety and alternate route notifications, in order to improve transportation efficiency and increase public safety
Challenge: Add Variable Message Signs (VMS) to Existing Network while keeping existing traffic controllers and serial to Ethernet device servers while avoiding hard line construction costs.
Solution: Original Perle IOLAN Device Servers were installed with scalability in mind, making the addition a VMS straightforward.
Challenge: How to implement new Ethernet based technologies such as Video Detection while maintaining use of existing serial based traffic controllers and traffic management control software applications
Solution: Install IOLAN Device Servers to consolidate video, Ethernet and serial traffic controllers across one Ethernet fiber
Challenge: How to implement a new Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) along with the latest Ethernet-based traffic devices while maintaining use of thousands of serial based traffic devices such as variable message signs, signal controllers, roadside sensors, lane control signals already in the field,…..
Solution: Install Perle IOLAN Device Servers in the field to IP-enable the existing traffic control devices.
Benefits: The City IP-enables existing traffic control devices in order to interface with both the new ATMS and the new Ethernet-based traffic equipment. This way the City avoids costly equipment replacement & leverages their initial traffic control equipment investment.
Challenge: Provide departure times of trains and to keep passengers and staff informed about the traffic status at all times
Solution: Perle UltraPort 4 port RS232 serial cards to handle the communication with the video monitors
Benefits: Compatible with all major operating systems and operational without needing to make modifications to equipment or cables.
Challenge: The company was looking for a dial-in solution that would allow its customers’ suppliers to check warehouse stock levels. It also needed to give IT staff remote access to the AS/400 and provide office-based employees with Internet access from the LAN.
Solution: Eddie Stobart chose a Perle 833AS Access Server to meet its multiple requirements.
Benefits: The Perle 833AS has provided the company with a secure and scalable solution for its customers’ information requirements. It also met the company’s internal needs for an easy-to-use, reliable solution that provide remote access to the AS/400 and offers LAN-based dialout Internet access.
