Installing fully managed switches throughout an entire wind farm can be prohibitively expensive. One of our customers realized that their application didn’t actually require all of those management capabilities. Instead, they installed Advantech B+B SmartWorx SE305-T smart switches, which support Modbus/TCP to communicate with SCADA software and SNMP to communicate with NMS (Networking Management System).

The traffic experts at INRIX report that British drivers spend 30 hours per year in traffic jams. For German drivers it’s 35 hours. In the USA, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency says that 30 percent of the city’s traffic congestion is caused by drivers looking for a place to park. And the Texas Transportation Institute estimates the annual cost of traffic congestion in the United States alone adds up to $87.2 billion in wasted fuel and lost productivity. Much of this congestion could be addressed with smart Internet of Things technologies that already exist.

Cellular routers will establish reliable, high bandwidth network connections anywhere there’s cellular service. They support the transmission of anything from audio and video to email and images. They support modern security technologies and prevent unauthorized intrusion. They’ll connect with modern data networking equipment as well as legacy devices like RS-232 digital signs, thus protecting investments in older technologies. Versatile and wireless, cellular routers simplify communications with remote locations and equipment while simultaneously providing them with enhanced capabilities.
The Challenge Sensors aren’t always placed in locations that make data networking connectivity easy. One rather extreme example would be the slopes of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull...

Traffic control agencies need the ability to update information at remote locations at a moment’s notice.
Fleet managers need to monitor OBDII data from vehicles that may be hundreds of miles away. First responders need two-way communications with dispatchers and databases.
