Smart City Wireless Network in Hawaii
Following Altai’s successful smart city deployments in different regions around the world including Australia, Mexico, South Africa, China, India, Malaysia, Hong Kong and more, it has partnered with the local expert Sun Global Broadband (SGB), to provide wireless connectivity for Hawaii.
The initial phase of testing took place over the amazing beaches of Waikiki with the green light given to a more widespread roll out.
The solution by SGB provides unique “hand-off” capabilities and continuous HD video capabilities not usually associated with Wi-Fi. SGB and its partners designed this network for multi-country, single sign-on capabilities for the international visitor industry. Specialised software supporting multiple languages over a private network will provide travel and location based applications for cultural exchange between international travelers, Hawaiian businesses, the Hawaiian community, and Asian and North American networks.
Spreading over 177sq.km, phase 1 of the island-wide Wi-Fi network has been completed with outdoor wireless coverage from Diamond Head, Waikiki, Ala Moana to Ward Villages.
The supplied wireless network serves as an unparalleled wireless enabler to all the system users including Municipality, MNO’s and Enterprises, for different revenue-generating Wi-Fi services and smart city applications. SGB’s unique network design provides low latency, high availability for superior quality HD video streaming, efficient VoWiFi, and highly robust connectivity for smart city applications. Unlike other access points, Altai’s 8×8 MIMO smart antenna technology is able to provide much wider and larger overlapping macro coverage with significantly less AP’s.
The technology also offers a seamless roaming Wi-Fi experience to any mobile device. Combined with AltaiCare, a powerful cloud based controller with AP and access management, advertising engine, big data analytics and more, it allows the installer to manage the wireless network under one touch.
SGB has benefited in a significant reduction of the total cost of ownership and a much faster scale of deployment. The new Wi-Fi network is like a cellular network at a fraction of the cost.
Altai’s patented Super WiFi technologies provides the foundation of the smart cities of tomorrow. When cities are becoming more connected, all stakeholders can benefit. MNO’s can benefit from the revenue generation and governments can make wiser decisions from the smart data collected through the network. In general, connectivity can indirectly help improve the sustainability of a community or in a larger scale the country’s economy.
