The Digital of Cities and Villages


Smart City - Concept by Harald Welzer

  • English:
    • A place of analog encounter and communications, where unexpected may happen and happens.
  • German:
    • Ein Ort analoger Begegnung und Kommunikation wo Unerwartetes passieren kann und passiert.

IOT Concepts

Digital Twin, Digital Shadow

  • Digital Twin = Target ( German “Soll-Zustand” ).
  • Digital Shadow = Performance ( German “Ist-Zustand” ).

Specific Value Proposition

3-Phase Model of Proceedings how to build an IOT Service from Sensor to Cloud

  1. Connect.
  2. Collect.
  3. Consume.

Internet-Of-Things Drivers & User Requirements

  1. Customer centricity: From USP ( Unique Selling Proprosition ) to ISP ( Individual Selling Proposition ).
  2. Hyper connectivity.
  3. Self-learning products ( → Algorithms. What may the company's staff member do better than an “algorithm”? ).
  4. Realtime big data data processing.
  5. Context.
  6. Immediate availabilty ( “now” ).

Retrofitting of traditional Systems / Machines for Internet-Of-Things

  1. Access to the control system.
    • Abstraction of the parameters and functions.
    • Implementation of a virtual representation.
  2. API-ification of the functions and data.
    • Development of communication technologies.
    • Implementation of online services ( i.e. remote access to system functions ).
  3. Networking, accross the automation pyramid, from pyramid to cyber physical system - everybody can talk to anybody.
  4. Administration.
    • Backend applications.
    • Business logic.
    • Device / service management
  5. GUI applications.
    • Service integration.

IOT and Big Data Platforms

Huawai OceanConnect

The IOT Platform


Hardware Ecosystem

  • IOT Platform ⇐Ethernet= eCore9100 ⇐Ethernet= RF gateway “eLTE-U eAN3810A” ⇐eLTE= eLTE devices.
  • eLTE devices.
    1. WASHION “Libra 3” e-meter.
    2. Huawei “eA780 eLTE-L” ⇐WLAN= (sensor and actor) devices.
    3. “eLTE-IoT DTU” box ⇐RS-232 / RS-485= (sensor and actor) devices.
    4. Customer Device ⇐Ethernet= (sensor and actor) devices.
    • “Supports Services of Enterprise Applications and Private Industry Networks”.
    • Models eCore9300, eCore9100.
    • Experts stated, that eCore also works as a switch, to distribute maange to different RF devices. It also has the task to evaluate the package calls ( EPC function )
    • eCore connects RF gateways like “eLTE-U eAN3810A” with the LAN / Intranet, by Ethernet cable.
  • “eLTE-U eAN3810A” + “eA780 eLTE-L”
    • Huawei "eLTE-U eAN3810A" - “Base Station that Provides Communications Services in Huawei eLTE-U Solution”.
      • “eA780 eLTE-L CPE Huawei eA780 series DAUs (eA780 for short) are industrial gateway and routing devices that integrate routing, switching, wirelss access (including LTE wireless access), and security functions. The eA780 is featured with small-size, diverse interfaces, powerful functions, and easy-to-expand. The eA780 provides a reliable and secure access solution for quick deployment and applies to M2M markets, such as smart power, industrial campuses, transportation, and automatic production”.
      • “eA780 eLTE-L” connects by RF to a RF gateway like “eLTE-U eAN3810A”.
      • “eA780 eLTE-L” may connect by indoor WLAN to local field entworks, local sensors and local devices.
  • “eLTE-IoT DTU”.
    • “eLTE-IoT DTU” might be based on devices of USR IOT - “Serial to Ethernet Converter, Industrial 4G Router, Cellular Modem”.
    • The “eLTE-IoT DTU” box may connect by indoor RS485 and RS232 to local field entworks, local sensors and local devices.
