Connecting and Optimizing Mass Transit Fleets

Introduction to Cisco Managed Gateways for Mass Transit

Cisco is a global leader in data and networking and provides a wide range of products to address connected mass transit solutions. By applying our networking and IoT expertise to mass transit systems we have created innovative technology solutions which optimize system operations for mass transit. Our goal is to future-proof your investment by providing an evolution path from today’s bus-centric connected bus and rail systems to cloud-based solutions and interaction with the smart cities of tomorrow.

Benefits

Manage and optimize your mass transit fleet operations via:

  • Simple solutions geared towards OT staff and easily integrated into existing asset operations
  • Secure solutions that ensure asset availability and operational integrity
  • Scalable solutions that allow thousands of assets to operate simultaneously, positioning the customer to meet future requirements

Cisco Validated Designs

Since the inception of IP networking, Cisco Validated Designs™ (CVDs) have been used to validate, architect, and configure next-generation technologies. CVDs start with the vertical use cases and architect the flow from the edge device to the application, validating the key Cisco and 3rd party components along the way. Each aspect of the architecture is thoroughly tested and documented with sample configurations, helping to simplify integration through proven solutions.

The goal is to ensure a deployment that’s simple, faster, reliable and cost effective.

Mass Transit Challenges

Currently, mass transit faces a host of problems and inefficiencies in the way it is operated:

  • Multiple, disjointed on-board systems resulting in the presence of multiple LTE gateways/SIM cards
  • Lack of unified connected fleet operations insights
  • High costs, especially with antenna installation and recurring cellular charges. Also, leads to difficult scaling, as thousands of vehicles each require multiple gateways and vendors
  • Minimal to no security
  • Legacy Vehicle Logic Unit (VLU)-centric architecture that limits future technologies and passenger services
  • Serviced mainly by IT professionals and the IT department
  • Systems are often on-premise-based and require staff to be on site at the Operations Control Center for access and visibility into the network
  • Access to high quality and high-fidelity data is often difficult due to outdated legacy technology
