Making Kakinada a ‘truly’ smart city
This case study enumerates how STL, with its expertise in converged networks, designed and deployed a Smart city ecosystem with IoT-driven civic infrastructure like smart lighting, public Wi-Fi, city surveillance, video analytics, public announcement systems, and much more. All these applications run on the back of a robust 120 kms of optical fibre backbone and an MPLS network. Making Kakinada a ‘truly smart’ is an advanced command and control centre and provides a 360o situational awareness and action mobilization for the city. Applying design thinking to each layer of the network, STL also created an end to end safety ecosystem, which will make the city safer and enable seamless action on real time information.
Challenges that we faced (and mitigated)
- Concerns related to traffic safety
- Lack of public safety mechanism
- Absence of warning systems during natural disasters
- Excess Electricity usage
