Deutsche Telekom Group’s Croatian subsidiary Hrvatski Telekom (HT) announced that it has been selected as the technology partner for the City of Dubrovnik, a city in southern Croatia that is famous for tourist attractions. The first step in this direction is the joint opening of Dubrovnik’s first Smart Street at Obala Stjepana Radića, a pilot project developed in strategic partnership with Cisco.
The Smart Street project represents synergy of a variety of ICT solutions and is based on the Cisco Digital Platform, an open, scalable, secure and manageable environment for integrating various solutions and applications.
The Smart Street features public lighting with a multi-functional sensory network, and a variety of access technologies, from optical links to 4G and Wi-Fi networks. These technologies allow the residents and visitors of Dubrovnik to obtain free of charge Internet access at the pilot’s footprint, at high speed and throughput (50 Mbit/s). The Smart Street project also includes a traffic management solution that will use cameras to identify traffic violations, and an innovative parking technology.
