Country park monitoring system launched in HK

A Japan-based tech company under the Hong Kong Smart Government Innovation Lab recently announced that it has launched a new solution which is now ready to be acquired by companies and institutions.

Solution description

Generally, network availability within countryside parks is limited. In addition, investment in the development of a wired network is very expensive. So, using wireless access is one of the best methods to achieve better connectivity.

However, using a 4G/5G network will incur monthly fees, and with 4G/5G the network coverage in the suburbs is also limited. Thus, the company recommends using their proprietary fixed wireless access communication (FWA) services because of its fast speed, high reliability and easy installation. After installing this system, it can effectively monitor wildlife in country parks as well. If dangers and emergencies are found, control centres can be notified immediately and appropriate handling can be made right away.

Application areas

The solution was designed for implementation across various areas including City Management, Environment, Health as well as Infrastructure.

Technologies Used

The solution employs the latest in Mobile Technologies and Predictive Analytics.

Use Case

Users can install the fixed wireless access communication (FWA) monitoring system on the periphery of the country park. A monitoring post, equipped with a camera, can be set up around every two hundred metres. Solar power can also be used to reduce power requirements.

When wild animals walk near the country park at the periphery, the motion sensors will trigger the camera to take pictures and send them to the control centre and send out alarms via e-mail. In addition, buzzers can also be installed on the system to deter animals from approaching and blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs) can be used to frighten them away. When wild animals leave the country park, relevant departments can take immediate action.

About fixed wireless access communication (FWA) monitoring systems

Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) enables network operators to deliver ultra-high-speed broadband to suburban and rural areas, supporting home and business applications where fibre is prohibitively expensive to lay and maintain, one article notes.

The cost and complexity of delivering fixed broadband have continually challenged the roll-out of high-speed data services. While technologies such as WiMAX have attempted to bypass the local loop or prevent the fibre trench, these initiatives largely failed – primarily because they demanded a completely new overlay infrastructure and expensive proprietary equipment.

In contrast, 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) employs standardized 3GPP architectures and common mobile components to deliver ultra-high-speed broadband services to residential subscribers and enterprise customers.

Featuring New Radio (NR) in the millimetre wavelength (mmWave), 5G FWA can provide a competitive alternative to fixed-line DSL, cable and fibre across all markets. This provides how suburban and rural consumers can receive the bandwidth required to support high definition streaming services and high-speed Internet access.

About the Smart Government Innovation Lab

In 2018, the Government established the Smart Government Innovation Lab to explore hi-tech products such as AI and relevant technologies, including machine learning, big data analytics, cognitive systems and intelligent agent, as well as blockchain and robotics from firms, especially local start-ups.

The Lab is always on the lookout for innovation and technology (I&T) solutions that are conducive to enhancing public services or their operational effectiveness. I&T suppliers are encouraged to regularly visit the Lab’s website to check on the current business and operational needs in public service delivery and propose innovative solutions or product suggestions to address them.
