Adaptive Networks' Powerline Communications Technology Used in $18 Million Passenger Information System to be Installed in Hong Kong Transit System.
NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 9, 1998--Adaptive Networks announced today that its powerline communications technology Noun 1. communications technology - the activity of designing and constructing and maintaining communication systems
engineering, technology - the practical application of science to commerce or industry is being deployed in the passenger information system of the Hong Kong Hong Kong (hŏng kŏng), Mandarin Xianggang, special administrative region of China, formerly a British crown colony (2005 est. pop. 6,899,000), land area 422 sq mi (1,092 sq km), adjacent to Guangdong prov. transit system. Adaptive's partner, Telecite, Inc. of Montreal Of Montreal is an American indie pop band formed in Athens, Georgia, fronted by Kevin Barnes. It was among the second wave of groups to emerge from The Elephant 6 Recording Company. has been awarded the contract by the Mass Transit Railway Corporation (MTRC MTRC Mass Transit Railway Corporation (Hong Kong) ) of Hong Kong to design, supply and install more than 3000 multi-colored LED passenger information displays for the first phase of this project. The displays are capable of providing passengers with real time emergency messaging as well as news, weather, sports, entertainment and other public service information. Adaptive's powerline communications technology is used to distribute Telecite's data to the displays over wiring already in place in transit vehicles. As adding new wiring in an existing train is virtually impossible, Adaptive's technology allows Telecite's system to be installed with ease.
According to Marshall Moreyne, President & CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. of Telecite, Inc., "Only Adaptive's technology for data transfer over existing electrical wiring provides the reliability, speed and immunity to electrical noise that our display system requires. The data must get through to each display on command, without error, and with tight timing constraints in order for the LED displays to transition smoothly." Telecite's system sets itself apart from all others by offering high quality displays.
Adaptive's powerline communications technology is installed in Telecite's display networks in the Montreal Metro, as well as in those in Paris and Mexico.
Adaptive Networks is the recognized leader in high-speed, highly reliable powerline communications technology, whereby existing AC power lines become a communications network. Silicon chips embedded in each device connected to the powerline transmit and receive data, making it possible to easily establish networks to communicate with everything plugged into the line, from personal computers and cash registers to utility metering equipment and vending machines.
Adaptive's powerline communications technology was selected by the International Standards Organization See ISO. as the standard for powerline communications aboard refrigerated re·frig·er·ate
