Public WiFi Solutions
FREE public Wi-Fi access will be delivered with IBG's gigabit Wi-Fi unit which creates wireless hotspots where people can access the internet at no cost. Public Wi-Fi has many benefits for cities and users, such as convenient access to services, support for tourism, and communication channels for disaster relief. With the IBG platform, cities bare no cost for providing public Wi-Fi since costs are covered via advertising revenue. Wi-Fi enabled street lights are estimated to gain $500 USD yearly in ad revenue per light. This revenue is then shared between the city (20%) and IBG (80%) Advertising is delivered in three ways.
Paid adverts are displayed on cell phones and mobile devices when accessing the free public WiFi.
Paid advertising when consumers click advertisements to get more information.
Paid ads where advertisers push coupons and adverts based on location and the proximity to services being offered.
Free Public Wifi
Our proven end-to-end WiFi solution offers high-speed wireless coverage with 24/7 network support, ready to be deployed not only along cities worldwide but also within stadiums, shopping malls, airports, cruises, airplanes, residential communities, music festivals or any other large open-air event, etc. We are ready to let people share all those magic moments:
An end-to-end WiFi solution for stadium
Stadiums and other large sporting venues have become notorious for their poor connectivity. The stadium environment concentrates a large volume of users, causing existing cellular networks (3G/4G) to slow and leading to woefully inadequate coverage, with expensive data rates for accessing content.
This isn't just an annoyance for fans, but also a missed marketing opportunity for free 'word-of-mouth' advertising for sports teams, as fans often like to share their experiences on social media.
Some clubs do try to implement WiFi in their stadiums, but finding a solution that is both fit for purpose and reliable is a step too far for most, with numerous technical and logistical hurdles to overcome. That's where we come in. With the rare combination of in-house assets, experience and resources to do the job, IBG Smart City is able to offer a proven, high-density WiFi solution to provide high speed wireless coverage to fans in stadiums as an end-to-end solution.
A great experience for the fans while giving the opportunity for clubs to build their brands digitally through a mobile loyalty and engagement app.

IoT Sensor Technology Solutions - Changing Lives Through Technology
IBG Smart City provides a range of products and services that utilize advanced IoT smart sensor technology as part of our Connected City Platform.
This technology combined with intelligent data-driven analytics provides insight to help deliver cost savings and efficiencies for public and private sector organizations as part of the digital transformation. IBG Smart City is helping to shape in towns and cities across the world.
The smart city sensor platform is an all in one unit that is uniquely designed for general smart city use. A variety of imbedded sensors make this unit useful for many applications, such as:
IBG's LED street lights make for brighter and safer roads, and the lights can be remotely disabled when roads are not in use. Additionally, sensors can provide alerts of possible lighting failures which allows for better maintenance planning to limit road closures. Cameras, microphones, and motion sensors, mounted to Smart Street Lights, can help to analyze vehicle or pedestrian traffic patterns and volume. This information can be used to manage city services; For instance, determining optimal bus routes, ideal times for road work, or identifying collisions.
Sensors or cameras installed on IBG's street lights can identify if parking spots are vacant or filled. This data could be used to bill drivers, or identify parking infractions and abandoned vehicles. Alternatively, this technology can assist in directing drivers to available parking.
LED street lights create safer environments by lighting common areas. Cameras and motion sensors connected to IBG's Smart Street Lights can automatically turn lights on or off depending if people are in the vicinity. Video monitoring and facial recognition supports security and law enforcement by identifying potential threats or infractions.
Smart Waste Management
Sensors connected to IBG's Smart Street Lights can monitor trash bins to measure fill-levels. Cities can use this information to plan waste collection schedules and routes, saving time and money. IBG's Smart City platform is ideal for deploying waste management systems.
Smart Utility-Grade Metering
Smart meters record consumption of utilities (e.g., electricity, water, or gas) and communicate the information for monitoring or billing. Cities can improve the efficiency and reliability of utility networks using utility-grade metering. For example, a city can optimize its distribution network to reduce electrical power outages and brownouts. IBG's Smart City platform is well suited for utility metering since it can power smart meters and transmit information.
Smart Air Quality Measurement
Air quality measurement allows cities to monitor pollution levels that affect citizens' health and wellbeing. Street light poles are an optimal platform for mounting air quality sensors since they can be placed along city roads and spread evenly throughout a city. Sensors draw power from the light poles and relay information using communication technology in IBG's Smart Street Lights. This setup captures more data points, at a lower cost, compared to traditional large industrial air-sensor units.
Intelligent weather monitoring
By monitoring weather patterns, cities are better prepared for extreme weather and natural disasters such as snow, rainstorms and hurricanes. Knowing the changes in the weather allows cities to be more proactive in coping with sudden changes in the weather. For example, the programming and planning of snow removal on the roads, a tsunami warning or sudden change in temperature (cold or heat wave) The IBG Smart City platform is ideal for housing weather monitoring equipment and It provides a source of energy, can transmit data and can be distributed throughout the city.
