UK-based Cambridge Broadband Networks Limited (CBNL )has developed a new intelligent transport system (ITS) to enhance Smart City capabilities. It is being implemented in Rzeszow – the largest city in south-eastern Poland.

CBNL is the market leader in point-to-multipoint (PMP) microwave and is working alongside transmissions systems integrator VSAT System on the project.

The ITS provides a single integrated communication system between public transport vehicles, traffic management systems and the public, making it quicker, easier and safer to move around the city.

At its heart is CBNL’s carrier-grade VectaStar PMP microwave platform, which provides the wireless infrastructure to connect key elements of the network.

This includes a system of traffic light management and CCTV feeds from 50 crossroads; passenger information and ticketing offices/machines; backup links for the city crisis headquarters and dynamic truck weighting system.

By integrating communication to a single control centre, traffic can be monitored and controlled easily. This enables congestion to be quickly resolved, creating highly reliable public transportation services.

CBNL has been pioneering next generation microwave transmission equipment since 2000. VectaStar is one of the world’s leading solutions for enterprise access, macro or small cell backhaul. Privately-held, CBNL has headquarters in Cambridge UK, with offices in Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya and Dubai.
