Development of an internet protocol based infrastructure for traffic management

Historically, in the UK transmission of communications signals (including data, video and voice) across roadside communications infrastructure has been carried out on a system by system basis. The potential benefits of a common infrastructure based around the Internet Protocol (IP) have led the Welsh Assembly Government to adopt this as the common medium for transmission of all communications signals, within transmission buildings and control offices, on trunk routes and out to roadside equipment. This approach has been coupled with some novel cabling techniques to provide a low cost, flexible communications infrastructure. This paper discusses the issues that have arisen during the implementation, and the benefits that these approaches have brought.
