Smart cities will be built on data

Smart cities will be built on data

Smartphones, wearables, cameras, smart energy meters, sensors, … they all generate a continuous stream of data. Data that can be extremely valuable for city and municipal authorities to support their policy and to increase the comfort of their citizens.

If you don’t believe us, believe Agoria. In a recent 24-page whitepaper, aimed at local policymakers and downloadable on their website, they explain why data will be the building blocks for the cities and municipalities of the future. The whitepaper guides them through various themes that are inextricably linked to data, provides numerous tips & tricks and lets them check out where they stand in their data policy.

The main message is that data is everywhere. In a smart city, data is integrated across the policy domains and is seen as an essential part of proactive decision-making, a holistic vision and an organizational advantage. The data of utilities, public transport companies, local authorities and private data are all connected to each other. Traditional networks and services become more efficient thanks to digital technology and collected and integrated data. And real-time sensors collect data that is immediately interpreted, enriched with data from other sources and visualized, ready to use.

But the whitepaper also points out that, in order to evolve to a smart city, not only data is required, but a solid data architecture as well. Determining how data is processed, stored, and delivered, in order to reuse the information for new products and services and make it available to its ecosystem. This data architecture must meet a number of requirements so that it can be used in a smart city context. It has to be flexible, user friendly, open, evolutionary, secure, interoperable and easily accessible. And these are the same criteria that apply to DataBroker DAO, the first marketplace for selling & buying sensor data.

Wireless solution specialist Option joins the DataBroker DAO Alliance

Option, headquartered in Leuven, Belgium is a publicly traded tech companythat specializes in wireless solutions enabling machine to machine communication. With over 30 years of experience and many industry firsts, the company offers efficient, reliable and secure solutions across a variety of industries and applications. In 2005, Option was named ‘Company of the Year’ by Ernst & Young. The company has offices in Europe, the United States and Australia, and boasts an impressive customer portfolio historyfeaturing the likes of Sharp Corporation, Fujitsu Siemens, T-Mobile, Cingular Wireless (now AT&T), Vodafone, Orange, Airtel, Telstra, Acer and Samsung Electronics.

Recently the company shifted focus from mobile and wireless chipsets to devices to support communication between IoT sensors and the internet. CloudGate, their complete machine to machine communication platform, allows anyone to deploy IoT sensor arrays in any environment, anywhere in the world. With connection options through WiFi, Ethernet, USB, RS232, RS485, Digital I/O and Analog I/O, virtually any device can be connected. The possibilities are endless. Think of climate control, street lighting, fleet monitoring, shared bike rentals, smart metering, traffic control, independent living and much, much more.

Looking at the DataBroker DAO architecture, such a CloudGate box is, in essence, a gateway operator providing the connection between the sensor and the sensor owner. By tying in the DataBroker DAO marketplace and distributed API to these boxes, anyone deploying these CloudGate devices gains the opportunity to quickly sell the data they collect globally, without the need for intermediaries.

Option’s CloudGate Ecosystem
With CloudGate M2M Solutions Option delivers a complete, value-centric ecosystem of operators, hardware partners, application partners, AEP partners and systems integrators to the M2M marketplace. And from a certification standpoint, Option has you covered worldwide.

Interview

Last Friday, Crypto Rich, a UK based crypto influencer with more than 14K followers, had an interview with our CEO Matthew Van Niekerk.
