Smart Cities

Smart cities are the future of urban planning

The general move towards better connectivity of urban areas, gathering data from the environment, and its consequent analysis and utilization is what experts label as a “Smart City.”

Smart cities are the future of urban planning


Optical fiber plays a crucial role in the building of future cities. Optical fiber is not only used to connect the city, its residents, and its many devices.

Fiber optic sensing can provide the city with a nervous system that collects information from the outside environment.

Such uses can monitor traffic flow monitoring, temperature monitoring, strain monitoring.

With all of that gathered information can help get rid of traffic jams and help develop a sustainable area to live in.

Why Fiber Optics

Long Lifetime

Almost no maintenance over the whole lifetime.

Passive Sensor

No electrical power at the measurement point needed if used as a sensor.

Long Distance

Monitoring (50 km and more) of remote locations and objects, if used as a sensor.

Resists High Pressures and High Temperatures

Resists extreme temperatures from -269 to 700+ degrees

For Harsh and Explosive Environments

Resistant to corrosion, lightning, etc.

Immune to EMI

Electromagnetic interference
