NYC Intelligent Transportation Project Wins ITS-NY Award, Advancing ITS

Digi would like to congratulate NYC DOT for its recognition as the Outstanding ITS Project of the Year - Traffic Management Systems by the Intelligent Transportation Society of New York (ITS-NY).  We would also like to congratulate the team members, especially AT&T, who provided the project leadership and management critical to the success of the deployment. 

Digi is honored to have supplied our FirstNet Ready™ Digi WR54 dual cellular routers at each intersection, as well as the Digi Remote Manager® platform for configuration and management, and customized software and services for the project.

ITS-NY provided an overview of the NYC DOT project during its 2020 Annual Meeting awards ceremony last week. The recorded session is available at www.its-ny.org under library and links.  Its transcription: 

“The New York City Wireless Infrastructure Network (NYCWIN) provides a citywide communication backbone to all ITS devices, including traffic cameras, VMS, vehicle detection devices and 14K traffic signals. This project involved the decommissioning of the previous NYCWIN infrastructure, which was integrated into all NYC DOT traffic and ITS equipment. The replacement is an AT&T wireless network, which incorporates a dual-carrier design to maximize network connectivity and uptime by automatically using a secondary carrier in times of network service outage, thus providing 99.99% communication reliability. It is a turnkey solution to operate and maintain the integrity of NYC DOT systems.  This large scale deployment was completed in 9 months and under budget…”

To have completed this project in a mere 9 months is a huge testimonial to the NYC DOT management team and project coordinators, as well as the vendors and agencies that were a part of the implementation team.

ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) are a growing trend across the US and the globe, as major cities look to advanced technology to support reduced congestion on city streets, as well as improvements in public safety. We would like to thank NYC DOT and AT&T for choosing us. It was a pleasure to have worked with the entire dedicated team.
