Smart City IPv6 Interconnect Reference Design Solution
The overview of solution
Building a smart city requires setting up hundreds of network nodes to seamlessly connect to each other to transmit data. Reliability and scalability are important features of this network.
Smart meter communication, street light control and traffic light control are good examples. The Smart City IPv6 Interconnect Reference Design has two wire or battery powered wireless end nodes, a wireless router connected to the PC.
The design is easily extended to support 20 end nodes. The reference design of the MCU uses the K60 Ethernet encryption MCU, the RF transceiver can use the MC12311 or KW01 series MCU with integrated RF, and the router and data concentrator can use the QorlQ multi-protocol communication processor P1025.
Core Advantages ：
The K60 MCU family includes IEEE 1588 Ethernet, full-speed and high-speed USB 2.0 OTG interface with device charge detection capability, and hardware encryption and tamper detection.
The KW01 is equipped with a high-performance 1 GHz radio that can be used without Operating in the industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) bands of the licenses in the 315, 433, 470, 868, 915, 928, and 960 MHz frequency ranges. The P1025 has advanced security features, QUICC Engine, and rich interfaces.
What is the Smart City
Smart city is the use of information and communication technology to sense, analyze and integrate the key information of the core system of urban operation, so as to respond intelligently to various needs including people's livelihood, environmental protection, public safety, urban services, industrial and commercial activities.
Its essence is to use advanced information technology to realize the intelligent management and operation of the city, thereby creating a better life for the people in the city and promoting the harmonious and sustainable growth of the city.
With the continuous development of human society, the future city will carry more and more people. At present, China is in the period of accelerating urbanization, and the problem of “urban diseases” in some areas is becoming increasingly serious. In order to solve the urban development problem and realize the sustainable development of the city, building a smart city has become an irreversible historical trend of urban development in today's world.
The construction of smart cities has been carried out in many areas at home and abroad, and has achieved a series of achievements, such as wisdom in Shanghai and smart dual-flow; foreign countries such as Singapore's "Smart Country Plan" and South Korea's "U-City Plan".
Smart City IPv6 Interconnect Reference Design Solution Framework
Two genes in a smart city
There are two driving forces to promote the gradual formation of smart cities, one is the new generation of information technology represented by the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and mobile Internet, and the other is the open urban innovation ecology gradually gestating in the knowledge society environment. The former is a technical factor at the level of technological innovation, and the latter is a socio-economic factor at the level of social innovation.
This shows the driving role of innovation in the development of smart cities. Professor Meng Qingguo, secretary of the School of Public Administration of Tsinghua University, proposed that the new generation of information technology and innovation 2.0 is the two genes of smart cities, which are indispensable.
Smart cities need not only the support of next-generation information technology such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing, but also the next generation of innovation for the knowledge society (Innovation 2.0).
The integration and development of information and communication technologies have melted the barriers of information and knowledge sharing, melted the boundaries of innovation, promoted the formation of the 2.0 form of innovation, and further promoted the “ablation” of various social organizations and activity boundaries.
The transformation of the innovation form from the production paradigm to the service paradigm.This also drives the transformation of the industrial form, the government management form, and the urban form from the production paradigm to the service paradigm. If innovation 1.0 is a relatively closed innovation pattern that is oriented towards production, producer-centered, and technology-based in the industrial era, innovation 2.0 is service-oriented and user-centered, which is compatible with the information age and knowledge society,People-oriented open innovation.
