LYT Partners With Cradlepoint to Leverage Leading 5G Connectivity with Smart Mobility Solutions
Enables Faster Emergency Response and Better On-Time Transit Performance in Congested Metropolitan Areas
Santa Clara, Calif. – April 13, 2023 – LYT, a leader in intelligent connected traffic technology solutions, announced today a new partnership with Cradlepoint, the global leader in cloud-delivered 5G and LTE wireless network solutions. LYT will leverage Cradlepoint’s full suite of in-vehicle routers, managed by NetCloud to enable Transit Signal Priority (TSP) and Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP) solutions for fleets across the United States.
LYT’s TSP and EVP solutions (LYT.transit and LYT.emergency) produce a consistent and reliable green light for every transit or emergency vehicle more affordably than other solutions on the market. These technologies harness the power of a single edge device installed in Traffic Management Centers that enable transit and emergency vehicles to speak directly to networked traffic signals in cities through the LYT cloud platform. These best-of-breed transit priority and emergency preemption solutions will now leverage leading GPS network and location tracking capabilities provided by Cradlepoint.
Cradlepoint’s cellular routers ensure reliable connectivity with SD-WAN intelligence to optimize network traffic across diverse carrier LTE or 5G links — enabling continuous in-vehicle connectivity and telemetry data for fleet efficiency. LYTs EVP solution leverages dedicated nationwide public safety networks such as FirstNet and Verizon Frontline. Many agencies are already connected to these networks through highly flexible and reliable Cradlepoint wireless solutions for vehicles.
“The combined solution of Cradlepoint’s proven routers and LYT provides a best-in-class cloud-based approach to transit priority and emergency preemption solutions,” said John Nye, vice president, Technology Alliance Partnerships, Cradlepoint. “Today’s leading transit and first responder networking technologies require solutions that are reliable, easy to implement, and use offering robust data and reporting capabilities for optimum results.”
“We’re excited to partner with Cradlepoint and we look forward to strengthening our industry-leading intelligent traffic solutions that benefit transit riders as well as emergency first responders,” said Tim Menard, CEO and Founder of LYT. “With the combination of LYT’s innovative technology and Cradlepoint’s leadership in 5G GPS networking, emergency vehicles can improve their response times to accidents and incidents to save more lives, and the schedule reliability of transit vehicles will continue to improve.”
