SMART PARKING SIM CARDS & CONNECTIVITY SOLUTIONS

CRITICAL PARKING CONNECTIVITY

Parking & EV Charging Infrastructure

Smart Vehicle Parking Systems, ANPR & EV Charge Points

Car parks and parking lot are getting more advanced with ANPR technology, sensors, ticket machines, camera enforcement, EV chargerspoint of sale and ticketing machines, and mobile digital payment options. They also offer automated space and capacity updates to users using smart parking systems.

Ensuring a reliable range of connectivity options is crucial for services to function effectively. This involves offering automated user services, EPoS systems, ticket machines, maintenance reports, and parking site congestion or availability. It is vital for all systems to communicate efficiently in order to interact seamlessly with on-site and distributed users, their vehicles, App API enquiries, and parking transactions. Mobile technology can serve as the main or backup solution for each parking device. Providing the most dependable coverage through monitored multi-network systems.

Numerous car parks are situated underground or parking lot in remote or hard-to-access areas. We offer managed IoT router services for broadband or Wi-Fi connection, available in industrial format with optional external antennae.

Resilient Smart Parking Data Connectivity Solutions

Car park systems can be intricate, involving various IoT devices like ANPR cameras, CCTV, ticket machines, smart lighting, space sensors, vehicle detection sensors, and EV charge points. Different devices may need different connectivity solutions based on their location and data requirements. Camera systems may need more data, while parking sensors may only send small data packets.

Our business plans and SIM management portals allow clients to categorise devices by group type and plans for better management efficiency and cost reduction. Our secure managed IoT routers also enable devices to connect through local hubs and combine connectivity.

Main Connectivity Challenges in Multi Faceted Parking Systems

Connectivity is vital for the smooth functioning of complex parking systems and smart technology, yet it also brings challenges. As technology progresses and systems become more intricate, maintaining seamless connection between components becomes harder. One of the key difficulties lies in amalgamating various devices and systems, like payment terminals, ticketing machines, sensors, and surveillance cameras. These devices frequently operate on diverse protocol stacks and technologies, making it challenging to create a cohesive and dependable service. Furthermore, the large amount of data produced by these linked systems can overload the local network infrastructure, causing possible slowdowns and operational problems. A further difficulty is the requirement for strong cybersecurity measures to safeguard against potential dangers and uphold user data privacy. As online payment systems and mobile parking apps become more common, it is crucial to protect sensitive information and prevent unauthorised access.

Overcoming these obstacles and creating flawless connectivity in complex parking systems is essential for delivering a smooth and convenient parking experience for users. By tackling these challenges and introducing strong connectivity solutions, parking operators can boost effectiveness, enhance user satisfaction, and lay the groundwork for future advancements in intelligent parking technology.

Vehicle Detection Sensors & Smart Parking Systems

Vehicle detection sensors are a key component in modern parking systems, helping to efficiently manage the flow of vehicles and maximize available parking spaces. These sensors, typically installed in parking bays or at entry and exit points, use a range of technologies such as ultrasonic, magnetic, or infrared to detect the presence of a vehicle. Once a vehicle is detected, the information is relayed to a central system which can then monitor occupancy levels, guide drivers to available spaces, and provide data for parking management decisions. This technology not only streamlines the parking process for drivers but also contributes to reducing traffic congestion and improving overall urban mobility.

NB-IoT, LoRaWAN, & IoT Routers for Smart Parking Sensors

When it comes to introducing new car park solutions and technologically advanced systems in parking, technologies like NB-IoT, LoRaWAN, and other GSMA LTE systems are important for improving efficiency and user experience through the use of intelligent connected parking maps. These technologies allow for real-time monitoring of parking spaces, enabling drivers to quickly locate available spots and make reservations if needed. In underground car parking systems, IoT routers are used to ensure seamless connectivity and communication between devices. These routers act as gateways for data transmission, allowing for smooth operations and improved management of parking facilities. The integration of these technologies in car parking systems helps revolutionise the way we approach urban mobility, making parking a hassle-free experience.

Airport Parking: Connectivity for Robotic Vehicle Movement Systems

In the fast-paced environment of airports, efficient car parking is crucial for smooth operations. Robotic car movement systems are increasingly being utilised to optimise car parking, enhancing connectivity between vehicles and parking infrastructure. These systems work together seamlessly, using advanced technology to navigate parking spaces, identify available spots, and park vehicles with precision. By embracing connectivity, airports can maximise their parking capacity, reduce congestion, and improve overall passenger experience. This innovative approach not only streamlines operations but also demonstrates the power of technology in enhancing efficiency in transportation systems.

ANPR Enforcement Cameras

ANPR enforcement cameras are increasingly used in car parks, private facilities and airport roadways. They play a crucial role in road safety, parking revenue systems, charging for illegitimate use of private facilities and for ensuring compliance in drop off and pick up zones in airports. For ANPR systems to work successfully, they need resilient access to cloud services, product updates and real time information. Data also needs to be transmitted securely and privately to established and authorised end points. Caburn Telecom and CSL are experts in critical communication systems.

EV Charging Infrastructure

One of the main issues in implementing EV charge point infrastructure, is the delivery of adequate power systems. This can be in the form of lead times from power infrastructure providers, sufficient cabling, and access to third party sites. Increasingly, battery technologies, combined with locally available power sources are providing other options for faster delivery. For example, solar panels located on parking structures or canopy can be used to charge locally stored batteries to be always ready to cater for customers in need of a charge. 

EV chargers and particularly fast chargers are also expensive and time critical resources. It is important that non-EV chargers do not use them as simply parking spaces. In airports, for example, many parking providers rely on this infrastructure to provide a convenient and premium way of enable long stayers to leave the airport rapidly after a quick 20 minute charge. It reduces the need to continually move and trickle charge vehicles in case of an unexpected return.
