Seminars 2019 edition


Citymesh has been working with Nokia Finland to develop a private 4G/5G network solution for industry and the emergency services. Companies are increasingly evolving into environments where automation and wireless connectivity are important drivers. A private network guarantees reliable and low-latency connectivity for and in between different kinds of sensors, vehicles and people ... all operating across distances of over 10 kilometres. A private network is essential, particularly in environments with operationally critical communications and connectivity requirements.

Citymesh has also developed a "first response" drone solution for supporting the emergency services. By putting a drone on the roof of a fire station, it can set out immediately after a call has been received through the 112 call-centre. After checking a number of parameters (battery, no-fly zones, weather conditions), a route is automatically mapped out from the fire station to the incident location. When this is complete, the drone takes off automatically, under supervision of a pilot in the Citymesh control centre. Communications to/from the drone are via a private Citymesh 4G/5G network. Images from HD and thermal cameras are sent live to the fire station and to the emergency service units already on their way to the location where they will be deployed. Consequently, the emergency services arrive at the location fully prepared, and can adapt their strategy to the scale of the incident and the environment in which it has occurred.
