Capelon has worked with device communications and advanced meter readings for over 20 years and with smart streetlights for over a decade. The base for the connectivity in Capelon’s products has been a reliable and open standard powerline communication.
In 2016, the focus of the Capelon smart streetlight extended to the larger scope of a smart city.
That means two main challenges for Capelon.
– To provide an open central City IoT Platform for various of IoT devices/IoT protocols, local systems and external data sources. To provide a central city data hub allowing the city efficiently share data throughout the city actors along with smart platform services allowing the city itself to become a smart city service enabler.
– To extend Capelon’s vertical within Smart Streetlighting to meet the challenges involved in large roll outs. To provide the technology to even further promote innovative smart city IoT services by providing a common mesh network for IoT devices where the streetlights form the backbone.
Come and see us and we can talk about the openness and interoperability of FIWARE and TALQ2. We can also talk about massive IoT RF mesh from Wirepas allowing the city to build an efficient device infrastructure with city wide coverage.
