Cellular connectivity in road tax industry

Cellular connectivity in road tax industry


According to the leading provider of market and consumer data company – Statista, in 2018 there were more than 24 million commercial vehicles made worldwide. The logistics market is so vast that it is valued more than 5.5 trillion US dollars. Naturally, this incomprehensible scale of vehicles on our roads and motorways is one of the main reasons impacting road maintenance expenditure. Traditionally, the public sector is covering at least part of road maintenance costs with road tax systems. Also, some countries are installing systems that require every, even lightweight car to pay a road tax.


There are multiple ways of how road taxes are being collected, but the two most common ones are barrier control and automatic toll systems. In the case of the barrier control, the car driver must pay after crossing every barrier at a pay toll section. On the other hand, in the case of automatic toll collection, everything is done via the Internet, when a driver purchases electronic vignette for automatic scanners at highways or pays the toll according to actual use recorder by number plate cameras. Both ways require a reliable and secure connection to the Internet. Since most installations are present in remote areas, motorways – ensuring reliable connectivity is a significant challenge, due to expensive cabling works and costly maintenance of wired internet infrastructure.


Since the road taxation system requires constant, uninterruptable internet connectivity, generally, any wired Internet infrastructure is backed up by a cellular Internet connectivity option as well. This way, solution architects provide reliable and secure Internet access and remote maintenance. RUTX09 is a professional cellular router that is the perfect solution for road tax systems due to its wide array of features. It is equipped with two SIM cards, which provide uninterruptable internet connectivity in case one cellular data operator suffers service disruptions. In addition, gigabit ethernet interfaces provide connectivity for payment terminals inside payment tolls stations and for CCTV cameras, which are installed for license plate reading or security. In case of having a road with automatic vignette scanners, integrators use industrial cellular gateways TRB140 since they provide a cost-effective connectivity solution for the laser scanners that are connected using an Ethernet interface for communication. Overall, the information is passed to the road tax controlling system remotely. Furthermore, you can be sure to have all the latest information about how routers and gateways are performing via the Teltonika Networks Remote Management System software (RMS).
