Background

As cities around the world continue to develop and implement smart city solutions, there is an increasing number of devices being deployed. These can be the installation of cameras for traffic security monitoring or sensors to provide data on air quality, etc. LoRaWAN sensors are the preferred choice for environmental monitoring due to its reliability, ease of deployment and low cost. Industrial grade cellular routers are the optimal choice for the data forwarding from cameras and sensors to remote monitoring center wirelessly. Those smart devices are being deployed to combine the concepts of good governance, economy-friendly and sustainable development together for a intelligent city.

Solution

Infracomms – our Singaporean partner – has developed a solution that enables the rapid deployment and scaling of smart cities. Their SmartHub solution is a purpose-built enclosure box system that has celllular, LoRaWAN and even back-haul capabilities built-in. It uses Ursalink’s UG85 as a LoRaWAN gateway to collect sensor data, as well as UR35 to provide cellular back-haul as well as a PoE device for CCTV cameras. This allow for real-time big data collection of  traffic security monitoring from cameras via the cellular network, and small data transmissions from sensors via LoRa network.

In this application, several legacy environmental monitoring sensors are connected to the UC11-N1 Sensor Node and they send the data collected to the UG85 LoRa Gateway. The optional solar panel for the UC11-N1 charges battery of the sensor node which in turn provides power to the sensors as well. This makes it easy to deploy sensors that need no change of batteries as well. The UR35 cellular router provides electrical power to the UG85 and cameras via the PoE interface. It also acts as a packet forwarder for both the UG85 LoRa Gateway as well as the camera which allows operators to access data from the devices remotely.
