Challenge / Goal
Currently, cities are facing great challenges related to tackling climate change and urbanization. This means taking systematic sustainable development actions leading to fundamental changes in several sectors, such as public safety, energy, transportation, air quality and health to ensure safe, sustainable and smooth living for citizens. Smart city development, and especially digitalization, is seen as a tool to overcome these challenges, but novel digital infrastructure is needed for faster transformation.
A dense network of small cell 5G antennas, integrated to the urban infrastructure, is needed to provide high-capacity connectivity. LuxTurrim5G smart poles integrate together the new millimeter-wave 5G base stations and different sensors, cameras. lidars and other IoT devices providing not only super-fast, low-latency 5G connections, but also an extensive city-wide sensor network for the users. This enables gathering and utilization of diverse data to develop new data-driven services for the needs of the city, its citizens and businesses.
The pilot network consisting of 19 modular smart poles, 2 smart and safe bus stops, altogether more than 250 connected IoT devices (+ drones and autonomous vehicles) was designed and implemented around Nokia Campus in Kera as a pilot to test an urban smart city network and develop data-driven smart city services for different thematic fields.
