Creating an Open & Secure Multi-Vendor, Traffic Ecosystem

When: Wednesday, September 30, 2020 -- 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET

This webinar was developed and sponsored by Q-Free. 
Webinar Description:

Today’s traffic signal ecosystem is filled with more ITS devices than ever to safely operate an intersection, coordinate with nearby signals, integrate with connected or automated vehicles, and produce valuable data-based insights. To fully leverage the advanced functionality of all devices, it’s important to create an open environment where ITS devices can communicate with one another. This webinar will address the need for sharing communication protocols for agencies to best serve their communities using their chosen ITS devices – specifically addressing why this does not jeopardize safety and security. We’ll discuss security tips and strategies such as secure transport protocols, user access controls, and API authentication for deploying multi-vendor solutions and touch on the necessary evolution of transportation security in an increasingly connected world.
