  • Patent number: 11601396
    Abstract: Transportation infrastructure service discovery arrangement disclosed. In the arrangement a peripheral device is attached to a transportation infrastructure control network. The client is configured to request an address from a DNS server of the host network. As a response the client receives network settings that can be used for contacting applications attached to the transportation infrastructure control network.

  • Publication number: 20210221642
    Abstract: To have an integrated device management for a hybrid elevator environment, at least one converter for converting device management messages according to a second protocol used by one or more peripheral devices to be according to a first protocol, which is used by the device management of the elevator environment, is added to the elevator environment. Further, the device management is configured to update, in response to receiving a device management message containing, as device information, at least an identifier of a peripheral device, network information to contain the device information in the device management message.

  • Publication number: 20210218749
    Abstract: A method of controlling segregation of transportation infrastructure control data within a shared data network is disclosed. According to the disclosed method, the data network used for carrying the transportation infrastructure control network may be shared with devices that are not contributing to the elevator functionality. This is achieved using a particular arrangement that allows the use of generic peripheral devices in a transportation infrastructure network without disturbing elevator operations.

  • Publication number: 20210214183
    Abstract: An arrangement for connecting transportation infrastructure peripheral devices, such as elevator and escalator peripheral devices, to a transportation infrastructure devices, such as elevator, using a building network is disclosed. In the arrangement a virtually dedicated channel for communication between elevator and escalator peripheral devices is created. The channel is used for transmitting signals, such as elevator calls, so that there is no need to use a dedicated and separated network for elevator and escalator peripheral devices.

  • Publication number: 20210218746
    Abstract: Commissioning of a transportation infrastructure peripheral device in a transportation infrastructure control network is disclosed. In the arrangement a peripheral device is attached to a transportation infrastructure control network through a network element or directly to a controller. When the connection has been made, a process for identifying and granting appropriate access rights is initiated. As a result, common network technologies can be used for transmitting information that is critical for elevator operation.

  • Publication number: 20210211355
    Abstract: A commissioning arrangement for elevator and escalator network devices is disclosed. When the elevator network devices are connected to the elevator network they first get a unique communication address from another network element that is typically a network switch located higher in the chain of network switches. Then, using the established communication address, the network element contacts an automatic commissioning service for acquiring network configuration settings.
