The FOAM Breathes New Life Into Truly Smart City Environments
Inspired by our desire to enable citizens to live a more ubiquitously connected and safer life, meet the FOAM, a comprehensive platform that makes use of existing lighting infrastructure to wirelessly enable transformation of public spaces into Smart and Fully-Connected Environments.
The FOAM aims to foster the development of smart cities by providing a comprehensive solution embedded in a smart lighting product.
The Standard Tree of Technologies Approach = Diverse blend of non-fused technologies on a single pole.
The FOAM Approach: Holistic end2end solution with perfectly fused sub-systems into a single intelligent fixture that simply replaces the existing lighting fixture on the pole
Smart City Challenges - The FOAM Solution enables any brown field (retrofit opportunity) to overcome a number of challenges that many of the current solutions are not able to overcome.
The Framework: Combining City Objects, Sensors, and Data Sources, to ultimately deliver all types of ‘services’
The Technology: (Light that Lights, Thinks, Sees, Connects)
To understand the picture, it is important to note that the Juganu Smart City solution utilizes a concept of ‘Bubbles’ and ‘Globules’.
A ‘Bubble’ dynamically shares up to 1 gbps of connectivity with up to 100 light fixtures. All the lights within the ‘Bubble’ connect using a blend of proprietary bandwidth optimization and interference mitigation technologies, at the 5ghz band.
In essence, up to 10,000 intelligent light fixtures can be configured to work within a single ‘Globule’. However, in real-world implementations, assuming the customer desires to leverage the 2 cameras that are built into each intelligent light fixture, and the Public Wi-Fi capabilities that are also built into the intelligent light fixture, a more realistic number of intelligent light fixtures within a ‘Globule’ is closer 2,500.
In addition to the 5 Ghz band that enables the lights within a ‘Bubble’ to seamlessly connect to each other, up to 100 ‘Bubbles’ can connect within a ‘Globule’ using the 60 Ghz band. Up to 100 gbps of connectivity is dynamically shared with all of the ‘Bubbles’.
When the outdoor intelligent smart city solution is applied citywide, the abduction is tracked beyond the parking lot, facilitating swift resolution to the matter.
Other solutions that can be added to the indoor space of a brick-and-mortar includes ‘smart retail’, which enables the brick-and-mortar to capture all types of customer behavior analytics within their store. This type of data assists management with critical decision making.
