Tilson builds fiber and wireless networks for highway and rail operators nation-wide as a designer, design builder, consulting engineer, and general contractor. The ability to combine advanced technology with human transportation has become an important tool for Departments of Transportation to help achieve improved operations and safety along major roadways. Whether it is the use of Advanced Transportation Management Systems (ATMS) along major roadway corridors, smart signal systems along arterials, or multi-modal operation centers, reliable communication systems are an essential element for successful intelligent transportation systems. With autonomous vehicles around the corner, vehicle to roadside communications will soon become a critical component for the safety and integration of this new technology.
An advanced intelligent transportation system (ITS) consists of both wireless and fiber optic components, creating a communication backbone that provides the infrastructure to support both current and future ITS applications. Tilson is uniquely positioned to provide the communication expertise required for the deployment of ITS. Our experience includes large scale fiber optic networks as well as the latest 4G and 5G wireless architectures. We provide services including RF engineering, wireless network design and engineering, self-provisioning of fiber optic broadband networks and design, and construction and testing of communication wired and wireless systems.
Tilson brings experience working for state and federal governments around the country and a deep understanding of fiber and wireless technologies together to provide expert design and implementation services for all aspects of ITS. We understand that ITS systems are as diverse as our clients. We listen to our clients, assess their needs, and design and implement the system that is right for them. Our ITS projects have included traffic management and safety components such as closed-circuit cameras, dynamic message signs, roadway sensors, and traffic management center integration.
