Goals of the Pilot
This smart city pilot is focused on defining a 5G network slicing architecture for smart lighting applications: metering solutions for gas, energy and water; remote monitoring of city infrastructure, such as pollution, temperature, humidity and noise; real-time traffic information and control, city or building light management and public safety alerts for improved emergency response times.
In terms of 5G functionalities, SLICENET investigates:
Architecture and Overview
Based on a high level architecture constructed on three levels: data collection and transport layer, open IoT middleware layer and application layer, the system will allow real-time and history based energy consumption measuring. Furthermore, the entity responsible for operating and maintaining street lighting infrastructure will be able to proactively spot malfunctions, energy loss or attempts at energy theft on the public lighting network.
Outcomes and Impacts
The impact of the Smart City lighting pilot comes from innovations in programmable infrastructure deployment with 5G network resources, slice and service monitoring and collected data explosion. This includes
