UK based video and communications solutions provider AMG Systems has delivered its AMG 9000 managed ruggedised ethernet switches to IL&FS Transportation Networks Limited (ITNL) in India for toll management. The ethernet transmission equipment is being used by ITNL in its toll management system on a 119km stretch which has been recently added to Highway No. 8. The stretch of road, which links Beawar and Gomti in Rajasthan, is being executed by IL&FS as a Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) project. The toll system on the road has two six-lane toll plazas, each with an extra wide lane in each direction. It is a semi-automatic toll collection system with slow speed WIM (Weigh-in-Motion) sensors and lane controllers. Each lane monitors and records violations and incidents by vehicles through CCTV cameras. All the signals from auxiliary equipment, CCTV cameras and DVRs (Digital Video Recorders) are transmitted to the control rooms. The AMG 9000 solution provides two links between the control rooms and each lane. In case of failure of one link, the system switches automatically to the other redundant link. Overhead lane signs and lane traffic lights are also covered by the ethernet switches. The system also has a provision to add more toll lanes and to install an IP based CCTV surveillance system.
