Plugue Telecom, a wireless ISP serving the Brazilian state of São Paulo, faced a significant challenge in providing Wi-Fi connection to the municipality of Americana. The region's tropical climate and lush vegetation made it difficult for Wi-Fi signals to penetrate, making it challenging for residents and businesses to access reliable internet for browsing, video surveillance, security applications, and voice and data streaming. The dense foliage made it difficult to cover the municipality's many houses and small businesses with reliable, high-capacity band delivery, especially in non-line of sight (LOS) situations.

They are committed to providing high-quality Wi-Fi connections to their customers, which include residents and businesses in the municipality of Americana. These customers rely on Plugue's services for a variety of needs, including internet browsing, video surveillance, security applications, and voice and data streaming for both home and enterprise use. Despite the challenging environmental conditions, Plugue is dedicated to finding innovative solutions to ensure reliable, high-capacity band delivery.
After being disappointed by other vendors' equipment, Plugue Telecom began exploring the market for broadband infrastructure designed specifically for non-LOS situations. They discovered Cambium Networks, which offered comprehensive webinars, targeted product information, and in-depth conversations amongst engineers and network operators via the Cambium Community forum. These resources thoroughly described Cambium's solutions and how to approach every stage of deployment, from selection to installation. Inspired by the wealth of information and the potential of Cambium's solutions, Plugue decided to reach out and collaborate with Cambium Networks.

Turning A Stadium Into A Smart Building
Honeywell created what it called the “intelligent system” for the National Stadium in Beijing, China, turning the venue for the opening and closing events at the 2008 Summer Olympics into a “smart building.” Designed by highly controversial artist Ai Weiwei, the “Bird’s Nest” remains one of the most impressive feats of stadium architecture in the world. The 250,000 square meter structure housed more than 100,000 athletes and spectators at a time. To accommodate such capacity, China turned to Honeywell’s EBI Integrated Building Management System to create an integrated “intelligent system” for improved building security, safety and energy efficiency.

Buoy Status Monitoring with LoRa
The Netherlands are well-known for their inland waterways, canals, sluices and of course port activities. The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure indicates that there are thousands of buoys and fixed items in and near water environments that would profit from IoT monitoring. One of the problems with buoys for example, is that they get hit by ships and the anchor cable breaks. Without connectivity, it takes quite some time to find out that something has happened with that buoy. Not to mention the costs of renting a boat to go to the buoy to fix it. Another important issue, is that there is no real-time monitoring of the buoys at this moment. Only by physically visiting the object on the water, one gains insight in its status.
Barcelona Case Study
Barcelona’s heavy traffic and its associated high levels of pollution were the primary factors that motivated some companies and universities to work on strategies for improving traffic in the city centre. Bitcarrier is one of the technologies involved in the In4Mo Project, whose main objective is to develop the applications that form the core of smart mobility, one of the fundamental pillars of the smart city concept.
China Mobile Smart Parking
Smart Parking, powered by NB-IoT technology, is making it easier for drivers to find free parking spots. Cities can better manage their parking assets and maximize the revenue available to them as a result. Drivers searching for parking create congestion and pollution by circling and hunting for available parking. Smart Parking services are able to significantly ease these problems by guiding a driver directly to a parking space.
