From solutions that deliver wide-area radio coverage to wireless broadband capabilities for real-time data monitoring of assets and wireless video surveillance, Harris Public Safety and Professional Communications is a leading supplier of communications systems and equipment for transportation customers.

Shared Resources and Enterprise Networks

Existing state and county-wide VIDA® networks provide flexible, cost-effective platforms for expanding the network to include wireless broadband applications for transportation. For example, dynamic messaging for highways can be directly linked to transportation centers when Amber Alerts, weather alerts and other important messages need to reach the traveling public quickly.

Operations and Security

Harris VIDA solutions allow transportation centers to wirelessly transmit and receive data, wirelessly stream video of critical infrastructure such as ports, airports, transit and highway systems and wirelessly collect data from remote weather information systems and tracked passenger vehicles.

PennDOT Relies on OpenSky®

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania state-wide radio system (PA-STARNet) handled record-breaking traffic as first responders, including PennDOT, PA State Police and local officials, were able to communicate without interruption during recent snow emergencies.
