Siemens’ DUSC arrives in Azerbaijan
Erlangen, Jan 9, 2006,
A Dial-Up Strategic Control system (DUSC) from Siemens will be installed in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, to help manage traffic in the rapidly expanding city. The system will be installed by R.S Industries from the Orad Group, a leading Israeli engineering and infrastructure company. Orad was selected by the Azerbaijan Police Department to plan, implement, and manage the project.
According to Siemens Traffic Controls’ Export Sales Manager, Ray Wood, over 100 ST800 controllers, outstation monitoring units, and associated communications technology will be supplied to establish the system for the city of Baku which currently has no formal traffic management infrastructure in place. “While fully-featured UTC systems are usually the obvious choice for complex networks of intersections, choosing the right solution for smaller networks can be less clear cut. In situations like Baku where infrastructure and running costs of fully-featured systems may prove unsupportable a DUSC system, with its less demanding instation requirements and very low communication costs, will provide an attractive solution” he said.
Based on the Siemens highly successful Remote Monitoring System, DUSC features a full map-based operator interface. Communications are based on infrequent PSTN or GSM connections, avoiding high communications costs incurred with permanent instation to outstation links.
Baku is the political, economic and cultural centre of Azerbaijan – a former Soviet republic – where the economy is based on the country’s rich oil resources. Orad was chosen for its proven capabilities to provide a high end solution that helps solve diverse traffic problems and Orad specializes in providing integrated solutions that are based on the most advanced traffic products and technologies.
