Our solutions process the massive amount of data generated by smart cities by combining high bandwidth connectivity and network solutions. They help governments to provide quality public services and release public data sets; companies to build strong customer relationships and unlock innovation; citizens to access e-services seamlessly and develop an “i-kampong” community. A 2015 agreement between the French Agency of Security of Information Systems and the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore reinforces collaboration on cyber security, a major issue given the increased usage of mobile devices, connected objects, and cloud computing.
End-to-end deployment and management of ultra-broadband wireless and fixed network:
– Macro wireless network: 4G LTE and Wi-Fi.
– Micro wireless network: small cells to add capacity and coverage in high traffic and hard-to-reach areas; they can be integrated into street furniture based on a partnership with JCDecaux.
– Wired network: fibre solutions to bring ultra-broadband to any user; the passive optical LAN (local area network) solution brings fibre to the desktop for 50+ years with high performance and secure broadband (no electronic magnetic signals that could be intercepted by hackers) at a fraction of the cost of traditional copper-based Ethernet LAN configurations, while reducing power consumption by 40% and IT fl oor space by 90%.
Deployment of high-speed wired networks (ADSL, cable, optic fibre) and wireless networks (3G, G) in the city; specific solution for secured and high-throughput telecom networks.
Design, development and marketing of compact and powerful multi-service routing platforms (4G, Internet of Things, Machine-to-Machine, satellite) for service providers to deliver advanced high-speed managed services to their customers.
Range of innovative batteries that deliver efficient and reliable backup power to telecom networks, including in very hot climates and urban settings. For instance, Evolion is a lithium-ion compact and light battery that delivers the maximum energy backup possible in the limited space and weight available within telecom cabinets (e.g. cabinets mounted on street lamps); its high volumic energy means that it only needs 50% of the space required by a conventional telecom battery, freeing up space for revenue-generating equipment.

INTERNET OF THINGS
Smart cities are characterised by a high density of connected objects such as traffic sensors, connected vehicles or health devices. For the Internet of Things (IoT) to provide new services for citizens, solutions need to be deployed to enable high-speed secure communication and data exchange between connected objects.
Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Communication
A typical M2M solution encompasses several core elements: a device for capturing data from remote equipment, a secure network to transmit this critical information, a strong systems integration capability, a business application to help make sense of the data for action, and a reliable service management framework to ensure a coherent end-to-end service.
Remote management of M2M and sensors throughout the network for security and control. The solution can be dimensioned as needed with scalable components and open, stable Application Program Interfaces (APIs) to transport data and manage sensors. It significantly reduces operational costs and time to market of smart applications.
Intelligent Apps Enabler: a software platform that connects any M2M devices, manages their different message types and flows and the devices themselves, and enables data analytics. It also provides application-level support, such as software development kits, to speed up and simplify M2M solution implementation. The platform works with numerous device suppliers, technologies and protocols. It is part of Orange’s end-to-end M2M solution portfolio.
Long Range IoT Station: the LoRa™ wireless technology enables a two-way and low data rate communication among thousands of connected objects over long distances (several kilometres). In comparison to 4G cellular networks, LoRa technology is far more scalable and cost effective for embedded applications (e.g. street lights, traffic sensors, smart meters) and consumes less power. Installed on top of buildings, the station can withstand demanding environments such as strong wind or humidity levels.
