We’re helping to make the New York subways safer for millions of riders by supporting two important MTA projects: new life safety communications and security devices, and improvements to the overall collision avoidance system.
Our Transit and Communications teams have collaborated to engineer, furnish, program and commission new Transit System Help Points, Access Nodes and a Public Station Local Area Network (PSLAN) infrastructure at some passenger stations on the Flushing #7 subway line. These support and are used as network access points for all IP applications.
Help Points were first piloted in 2011 and are being installed system-wide. They are highly visible and easy-to-use communications and security devices that provide hands-free VoIP (Voice over internet) intercom over wired Access Points or wireless mesh networks along with high-quality video surveillance in a fully integrated solution using Belden Cat6 cable.
In six other locations, our transit engineers have completed work on the signal system by replacing a code subsystem and installing a new fiber network. This is part of the overall collision avoidance architecture. Our team is providing: Prysmian fiber optic equipment and cable; network engineering and systems integration engineering services; fiber fusion splicing services; and fiber optic installation layout and drawings.
