Critical digital infrastructure firm Telent has deployed its new intelligent transport system, Optima Hub, across 16 UK local authorities, with a further four trialling the solution.
Optima Hub remotely monitors and integrates data from roadside controllers and sensors. The solution enables that information to be accessible via a centralised, browser-based system allowing for increased mobility and productivity.
According to Telent, a total of 1,337 sites are currently being monitored by the Optima Hub. Some 600 of those sites feature 3rd party controllers and demonstrate Optima Hub’s ability to work with any manufacturer’s equipment. The system, featuring interactive maps and a streamlined GUI, is designed to provide a high degree of situational awareness to operators countrywide.
Telent’s head of traffic operations, Paul Owen said: “Having the ability to access data from multiple controllers in one place via any device provides immense value. The level of detail that the Optima Hub delivers means customers can assess and manage their roadside assets in a way that wasn’t previously possible.”
Hosted and managed by Telent, Optima Hub presents data from assets across the customer estate with modules that allow for traffic signal controller remote monitoring, CCTV, air quality, count data, bus priority and remote I/O.
As a web-based hosted system, Optima Hub is designed to be a scalable solution, capable of monitoring multiple controllers from any 3rd party manufacturer as well as legacy Telent controllers, presenting that data in one place for review.
Furthermore, Telent is also providing training to customers who adopt Optima Hub along with dedicated, user defined access to their sites.
The company added, with the capacity to remotely monitor pollution and air quality via cost effective sensors that can be integrated into the hub, alongside seamless CCTV which can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection, the system offers customisation and operational awareness with the ability to consolidate the data of numerous assets in one place.
