Wireless Communications Provider System


The 'Wireless Communications Provider System' represents the systems used by wireless communications providers to provide data and voice services that collectively serve billions of mobile users around the world. As they serve their customers, these providers collect location information from their mobile customers as they use communications services while they traverse the transportation network. This information may be shared with transportation providers, in aggregate and without personal information, to provide a rich data source that may be used in conjunction with other data to monitor transportation network use and performance.

Use this physical object where the relationship with the communications provider is limited to use of service provider-derived transportation network performance data. Where wireless communications services are purchased and used to support wireless interfaces included in an ITS architecture, see 'ITS Communications Equipment', which can represent use of purchased communications services as part of an overall ITS communications network.

This physical object does not have any functionality defined in ARC-IT, as it exists outside the system functional boundary.
