Intelligent Traffic Enforcement (ITS) solutions are being adopted at an accelerating rate around the world. They help police forces identify and punish traffic offenses without draining the resources of overstretched civil forces, creating a reduction in accidents and a net increase in automotive safety.
The individual enforcement devices gather data from the sensors then temporarily store the data on a local device, such as a field computer. At night the storage device will transfer photograph and other data to the command center. However, this processes requires a high-capacity, reliable network connection that can withstand years of service in outdoor conditions.
Wireless cellular devices provide a cost-effective network connection for Intelligent Traffic. Technicians can easily install the devices in any field enclose without delving into the costly process of burying fiber-optic cables. In addition, wired systems incur steep maintenance costs with constant risk of damage and very expensive repairs. Fiber-optic cables often cannot be repaired in the middle of the line and must be entirely re-installed if they become damaged.
