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.

Davor Tomašković, President of the Management Board of Hrvatski Telekom
We are proud to bring national and international partners to Dubrovnik and let them experience technological innovations and solutions that, being interconnected, will change the citizens’ culture of living and quality of life.

Ralf Nejedl, Senior Vice President B2B & ICT at Deutsche Telekom
Deutsche Telekom is working on several smart city initiatives all around Europe with our partners focusing on the areas of smart lighting, smart parking and WiFi implementations to showcase our capabilities in the digital transformation of cities based on our powerful integrated Pan-European network.
