Smart City: Become a digital city now with LoRaWAN

The digital transformation presents both challenges and opportunities. But for utilities in particular, there are opportunities to reduce costs, integrate new business models and improve regional visibility. The origin of this development can be found in LoRaWAN radio technology.

Smart city applications can be implemented on this basis. This includes, for example, energy management in public buildings, waste disposal, air quality measurement, escape route monitoring, parking space management or even infrastructural improvement of schools. Thanks to our product "TLS over LoRaWAN", these applications are also possible without restrictions in areas of critical infrastructure, so that network infrastructures can be monitored and smart metering can be implemented cost-effectively.

Here we explain the first steps:

From an idea to a project

During an initial discussion, we work out advantageous use cases together. For example, automated shaft meter reading is a great benefit.

 

Field tests for the individual use case

In addition to the individualised workshops, we carry out a field test together. For this, we install devices and also ensure integration with your systems and processes.

 

Simplification for infrastructure providers

The LoRaWAN infrastructure can be created easily and comprehensively through distributed properties. For the implementation, we offer you the necessary software and hardware as well as training for your employees and other services. This includes, for example, the simulation of a planned LoRaWAN network to identify the optimal locations for gateways.

 

Integration of your own IoTree service platform

You can use any platform for real-time visualisation, device management and process mapping. We are also happy to offer you the complete package with our IoTree service platform.

 

Scaling and operating your LoRaWAN network

Finally, the network is expanded and gradually extended with additional applications. To ensure the stability of the network in the long term, we create a digital twin for you that, for example, recognises the need for additional gateways at an early stage.

 

What our network says

Unternehmen 1

"With PHYSEC, we have quickly and reliably set up a LoRaWAN network and put several use cases into operation on the IoTree data hub. We have been able to track short-circuit events in our medium-voltage network since 2018 and monitor the low-voltage network since 2019."

Municipal Utilities
Haltern am See GmbH

Unternehmen 2

"The cooperation with PHYSEC is a great enrichment for us. The continuous support and the direct exchange enable us to digitize the metering system quickly and reliably. PHYSEC's comprehensive understanding of its IoTree platform has led to the creation, implementation and further development of the Heat Efficiency Package."

Municipal Utilities
Goettingen AG

Unternehmen 3

"The cooperation between Gelsenwasser AG and PHYSEC GmbH is always constructive, characterized by a very high level of technical competence and an open, trusting relationship with each other. With this background, we have already successfully implemented the LoRa®TLS project for efficient remote meter reading, which we will continue to develop together in the future."
