Smart City & IoT
The Sheffield Free Wi-Fi Network brings state of the art technology to every street in the Sheffield City Centre

Smart City Ready - Idaq Networks IoT Access Network

The Sheffield Wi-Fi network and its supporting infrastructure can be used for more than just delivering free public Wi-Fi. The infrastructure has been designed to deliver high capacity low latency IP backhaul that can be used by a multitude of current and emerging technologies. 

The network's integrated IoT gateways provide Sheffield with a ready made IoT Access Network which enables the reuse of the network's WAN, LAN and WLAN infrastructure. This shortens the deployment duration and reduces the cost of implementing City and Private IoT solutions. It also enables businesses that would not otherwise have access to City Wide network infrastructure to design and implement large scale IoT projects.
