With the rapid development of high-definition digital transmission system, Industrial Ethernet switches play an increasingly important role in the intelligent traffic monitoring system.

1 Introduction

After the intelligent traffic enters the data excavation, the data application era accelerates. The digital network data such as GPS positioning, bus dispatching, station monitoring and so on plays an increasingly important role in real life. The performance is that many cities now have 3G monitoring , GPS traffic control, ITS and other systems. Industrial Ethernet switches play an important role as an indispensable transmission device in intelligent transportation system.

According to a research report released by cutting-edge research institutes in the security industry, the market demand for industrial Ethernet switches in China has risen sharply since 2005. According to Inaccurate Statistics In 2008, China's industrial Ethernet switch market reached 540 million yuan and is expected to grow at a rate of 26.2% in the future (as shown in Figure 1, CAGR is 26.2% in 2008-2013).

2, intelligent traffic monitoring system for industrial Ethernet switch needs

As we all know, HD network camera resolution, the higher the resolution, the transmission of the code stream will increase, increasing the network bandwidth pressure. Therefore, the formation of network transmission system for HD network video surveillance system is crucial to the formation, if the transmission system can not meet the network video streaming transmission requirements, then the network monitoring will be impossible.

According to the features of the megapixel network camera, if the ONVIF network video standard is adopted, the burst peak traffic of each 1080P full HD network camera can reach 50Mbps and the burst peak traffic of a 720P HD network camera can reach 25Mbps. Therefore, each monitoring area aggregation switches and monitoring center of the core switching equipment should have strong data exchange capabilities and carry a burst of multi-user high-capacity peak access capabilities for rapid exchange of network video data to meet the fast response to data access requests.

In response to this situation, the major solutions currently in the industry are undertaken by the central core switch with a gigabit switch with high backplane bandwidth and packet transfer rate. Such a solution requires that the entire equipment room and front-end equipment have gigabit bandwidth, and the cost of laying, operating and maintaining is high. To this end, I Division special research and development of multi-service with cache industrial-grade switch products. The 100 Mbps switch is upgraded and smoothed by adding a buffer to smooth the bandwidth. This solution perfectly solves the buffering of traffic bursts and the smoothing of the rate of network services without increasing the bandwidth cost. (Figure 2)

At the same time, multi-service industrial switchboard with cache can support up to 3 low-speed data interfaces, each port can be individually configured RS232, RS485 or switch business, through a core optical fiber traffic light control, traffic monitoring, LED large screen, alarm And other data back to the central computer room, not only streamline the original low-speed data transmission equipment, reducing engineering costs, but also for the latter part of the management and maintenance to reduce the hidden dangers.

3.1 complex crossroads monitoring program

According to the planning requirements of a traffic command center, our company designed and developed a set of video monitoring and transmission system specially applied to crossroads at a traffic intersection, realizing all-round real-time monitoring of the traffic crossroads, Equipment costs greatly reduce the cost of the cost, which greatly improves traffic jams car and pedestrian flow complex monitoring efficiency, effectively improve the remote staff and dispatchers through real-time image information for comprehensive monitoring and analysis capabilities. Specific analysis as shown in Figure 3:

        According to the field analysis, we learned that four traffic junctions of a crossroads intersection are respectively equipped with different numbers of IP cameras. According to the number of IP cameras, we can pass different signals through optical fiber in a ring with a Fast Ethernet switch Link together, pay the final four intersection Industrial Ethernet switches converged signals are all merged into our newly developed hybrid Industrial Ethernet switches (the device is a redundant dual redundant power supply industrial aggregation switches , It can be the largest four 10 / 100M Ethernet electrical port and four 100M Ethernet optical port through two 1000M Ethernet optical port to achieve convergence.), Then by the hybrid Industrial Ethernet switches through the optical fiber will be different Business signals back to the traffic police command center of the general election gigabit switches, and finally connected to the user terminal to achieve the effective transport of information at the crossroads of the entire transmission of information fast, high speed, timely and effective.

The above key technical solutions and innovations are as follows:

Traditional system due to inconsistent before and after the end of the device caused by a larger code rate problem, and solve the problem of caching can only be upgraded to Gigabit through the megabyte rate, bandwidth smoothing function can now effectively solve the large-flow burst network services Buffer, the rate of the network business is smooth, and can realize the long-range and effective transmission through the low-speed data. This will not only greatly reduce the construction / wiring costs, more convenient for managers to work.

In the past, the transmission of multi-service information mostly used different equipment for transmission. Now a low-speed data Ethernet switch can effectively and rapidly transfer different services at the same time, instantly reducing the cost several times and reducing the number of managers The workload.
