Public EV charging stations for smart cities leverage cellular IoT modules and connectivity.

EV Charging Stations

EV charging stations enable energy replenishment between vehicles and the power grid. These commercial smart charging stations leverage cellular IoT modules and cellular connectivity in SIM technology. IoT modules and SIMs enable EV charging stations to exchange charging, telemetry, and security and surveillance data reliably and securely. They can also perform automated financial transactions (i.e., payments) with the charge point operator’s (CPO’s) backend system.

What Is a Smart City?

IoT enables ordinary cities to become smart cities. In a smart city, sensors, data and connectivity combine to create digital technologies that improve operations citywide.

Today’s city planners are incorporating big data applications and 5G networks to transform citizens’ lives and work. These systems promise a new generation of safe and environmentally friendly urban spaces.

How Private 5G and LTE Networks Can Connect Tomorrow’s Smart Cities

5G will play a substantial role in accelerating the smart city transformation through increased capabilities, such as:

With private 5G and LTE, specific IoT applications and services can be separated from the wide-area macro network. This separation helps fulfill connectivity requirements for organizations with heightened security needs (e.g., utilities and health centers). Campuses and other environments can gain seamless roaming and the ability to switch between public and private networks.

Smart Cities in Action: London

In 2018, the mayor of London launched the Smarter London Together roadmap to begin the city’s smart city journey. The strategy consists of new developments in infrastructure and urban regeneration projects in transport and health care. It includes:

  • A significant IoT upgrade for the London Underground
  • A smart parking program that provides drivers with real-time parking information
  • A driverless car shuttle service pilot program
  • A contactless public transport ticketing system
  • Low- and zero-emission zones in the city
  • Smart water metering

How IoT-Enabled Public Transportation Simplifies Commutes

Getting around in the city can be made easy and environmentally sustainable with IoT enablement. From scooters to communications systems that let passengers know about available rides, IoT smart city solutions make commuting convenient.

How IoT-Enabled Smart City Solutions Reduce Pollution

IoT-enabled solutions can reduce noise and air pollution and make cities more environmentally sustainable. Sensors and connectivity enable smart city applications to maintain green spaces for city inhabitants.
