Open City Hub

What is an Open City Hub?

An Open City Hub is a wireless infrastructure for the Internet of Things that, with the help of LoRa technology, enables detecting signals from sensors. The sensors can be fixed or placed on moving objects. Through the existing fiber network, the sensor’s data is transmitted securely and safely to its owner. A city hub constitutes an important base infrastructure in a smart city and is a natural complement to the open city network, only another access technology.
An Open City Hub offers

A connectivity service for LoRa sensors
Positioning of sensors as an additional service
High level security due to multiple-level encryption

For whom?

An Open City Hub creates opportunities for significant benefits for companies, residents and society in the region by simplifying connectivity:

A common open horizontal infrastructure for all, on equal terms
A city hub constitutes an important base infrastructure in a smart city and is a natural complement to the city network
A fundamental part of the robust society

Creating a low threshold for service providers and end users to establish IOT services and solutions, thus accelerating and simplifying digitalization in general and the development of the smart city in particular:

Does not require any own infrastructure for communication with sensors
Does not require any own operating organization for communication with sensors
