Communication plays central part in new applications for smart cities. The coordinated usage of infrastructure and assets yields often reduced costs and leads to better life quality for the inhabitants.
Potential applications of wireless mesh networks in cities include city lights control, parking space management, traffic control, garbage collection, construction monitoring and other. For many of them, system responsiveness plays a crucial role, which leads to local communication systems, that can span across multiple city blocks.
Another field of application that requires multipoint data exchange are smart buildings. Wireless networking is at the core of many building automation systems, allowing seemless communication between various subsystems and services such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), access control and security, sanitation and waste management, smart metering and other. Such applications often require superb radio sensitivity as the signal is heavily attenuated by walls and ceilings.
All of these features can be achieved within our wireless network.
