Security links for Lynx

02/14/2006


Picataway, NJ —CyberPath, Inc., a producer of Ethernet switches, announced the successful operation of a wireless security network on a Lynx bus route in Orlando, FL. CyberPath's EtherPath-ESS2226XTD, hardened managed-switches are connected to wireless access points placed in outdoor cabinets along the bus route to receive transported audio and video information from wireless cameras on each bus assigned to the program. The information is passed along a fiber network to a central command location for security analysis.

The pilot program was initiated by the Florida Department of Transportation as a model intelligent transportation system under the name "iFlorida" to demonstrate the feasibility of integrating a reliable security system for public surface vehicles and has been administered in accordance with the federal Dept. of Homeland Security. The program is expected to spur similar efforts in other surface transportation systems around the country.
