Anaheim’s Population Fuels ITS & Communication Equipment Needs
Best known for being home to the “Happiest Place on Earth” – Disneyland, Anaheim, California, boasts a growing population fueled by tourism, conventions and entertainment. With a population on the rise to support the local economy, the number of drivers and pedestrians on the roadways has significantly increased in recent years.
Crowded Cabinets & Lack of Intersection Real Estate
The lack of space within the city’s traffic signal cabinets had become a real challenge. With new ITS equipment being added to support better traffic flow and fiber cable being run through the cabinets – space was hard to come by.
The lack of space within the cabinet made routine maintenance difficult. Also, with the fiber cable being run through the cabinet, the telecommunications team needed frequent access.
Without the real estate at its intersections to add a new external enclosure to house the fiber cable, the city turned to Western Systems to help them create a custom solution.
