ICE Gateway has ambitious plans to make European cities smart with its multi-functional, intelligent digital infrastructure.

Business Need

ICE Gateway offers end-to-end products and services and develops the hardware and software for wireless outdoor Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), including LED lights, traffic, marketing, security, logistics and applications. The challenge is to find a cost-effective and reliable way of networking these gateways so they can communicate with each other, with users and with central control while also offering Wi-Fi access.

Solution

ICE Gateway connects streetlights to the high bandwidth Vodafone network for services concerning outdoor lighting, traffic, parking, logistics, real-time marketing, tourism and security. It ensures the highest data protection by adding intelligent processors to the lights, rather than simple IP based components therefore providing continuous real-time services with reliable, secure and highly available network connectivity. Vodafone has created a new, private network managed and monitored by proprietary tools. Individual SIM cards connect each ICE Gateway to dedicated servers and Vodafone’s managed connectivity service, sending data relating to security, traffic, lighting and other services while enabling Wi-Fi connectivity for customers.
