Intelligent Transportation System, and smart traffic management systems are an indispensable component in developing Smart Cities. In any city, mobility is a key concern, and not just limited to traffic congestion control and information, but also road safety and efficient infrastructure usage. These technology solutions prepare Smart Cities for coming technology evolutions, including Connected Autonomous vehicles (CAVs) and full deployment of 5G networks.  

These systems are utilizing connected networks, cameras, and in-vehicle sensors such as GPS, to cloud-based data sources of weather data, street conditions, situational awareness, video surveillance for automatized data collection with precise location information. Then the connected data sources are combined with sophisticated data analysis and artificial intelligence (AI) capability for an interconnected system that can power smart decisions, in real-time.  

This combination of data information and communication technologies of hardware, software and cloud solutions can greatly improve the safety, efficiency, and sustainability of transportation networks, to reduce traffic congestion, air pollution and to enhance drivers’ experiences. The possibilities are endless.  


A US-based AI solution provider come to Lanner seeking an outdoor rugged 5G/Wi-Fi edge Appliance hardware, the jointly developed communication solution must be capable of delivering the following requirements: 

• Rugged Design 

Must be able to endure the harsh conditions of outdoor environments and/or outdoor cabinet enclosures, requiring a fan-less design compliant with IP67 waterproof and MIL-STD-810G standards; in addition to supporting wide-temperature range, from -40 to 70°C. 

• Virtualization Node  

  The solution must support SR-IOV interface for virtualization, enable network traffic to bypass the software switch layer of the Hyper-V virtualization stack.  

• Rich I/O Connectivity Ports  

Built-in multiple LAN, and PoE+ ports with M12 connectors to connect existing infrastructure, cameras and traffic systems. 

• 5G & Wi-Fi 6 Connectivity 

The system must support 5G and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity to enable real time data collection and analysis.  

• Multiple SIM Slots 

Multi-SIM selection ensures that operators resources are used most efficiently and provides a fail-safe solution.  

• Security 

Cybersecurity features onboard TPM 2.0 for securing crypto-processing and tamper resistance at the hardware level.  


Lanner’s ISD-O370 is an all-weather, edge network appliance, featuring crypto acceleration, supporting 5G and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, IP67, and MIL-STD-810G environmental compliance. Designed as an outdoor, waterproof uCPE device deployed at the rugged edge, routing, security, industrial IoT and SD-WAN in the most demanding conditions.
