Modern Wired & Wireless Infrastructure Networks: Best Practices for Design and Testing

As new applications such as Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) continue to demand more from network communication infrastructure, we must rise to the challenge by designing robustly while ensuring design with high integrity. This webinar introduces you to the best practices required for designing and testing the newest class of Intelligent Transportation Networks.

As connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) join our highway public safety domains, existing networks are challenged to anticipate the performance requirements of data transmission required by these life- and public safety-based applications.

Designs must consider potential redundancy, component grades and performance standards redesigns to ensure the level of availability, resilience and robustness needed. Plans must also include cybersecurity precautions. Additionally, use of proper tools, techniques and commission testing must be taken into account to accommodate the layer of RF wireless performance required by mobility networks along the transportation pathway.

Join us to learn best practices required for designing and testing the newest class of intelligent transportation networks, including wired and wireless infrastructure.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn about the new applications emerging in the ITS Industry that impact the way vehicles communicate.
  • Understand the topology, bandwidth and redundancy requirements needed for ITS backbone optical networks.
  • Become aware of FCC frequency availability for technologies such as DSRC and CBRS.
  • Gain exposure to component types and their relevance to the ITS model of performance.
  • Examine case studies of pilot projects being currently implemented to showcase applications.
