One of the most critical components of a light rail system is its industrial networking infrastructure. This infrastructure connects components such as Power over Ethernet (PoE) cameras, DVRs, fare collection systems, and so much more. Edge-level network connections must be able to satisfy high-port count managed PoE Ethernet and serial communication. All of the data from these edge devices need to be transferred in real-time between stations to monitor all onboard passengers’ safety.
- High-port-count managed PoE capability to power DVRs & IP cameras
- Self-healing network redundancy to prevent single points of failure
- Serial communication for legacy equipment networking
- Industrial-grade networking devices to perform in a high vibration environment
- PoE cameras & DVRs to capture/store surveillance feed onboard light rail systems
LMP-1600G: High-port-count managed power over Ethernet switch provides power to the PoE cameras and DVR systems onboard the light rail.
STE-502C: Serial device operating the fare collection system onboard the light rail. The LMP-1600G switch is providing power to this device via Ethernet and converting it into serial communication.
