Ciena Helps States Implement Intelligent Transportation Systems that Improve Motorist Experience
For a highway traffic manager in a remote operations center, making critical decisions about road conditions without real-time data visibility resembles attempting to drive with a mud-splattered windshield. Without real-time access to the reams of data flowing from roadside devices, state Departments of Transportation (DOT) cannot provide motorists the up-to-the-minute information they need to safely navigate their way. Ciena can bring state DOT networks to a ‘carrier-grade’ level to provide the bandwidth required to support the growing number of sensors, video cameras, and other roadside devices. Open architecture solutions allow network support teams to scale the network without any disruption to operations.
