Call for city feedback

Reykjavik call for city feedback and experience on smart lighting infrastructure

The City of Reykjavik is aiming for two Smart Lighting testbeds downtown Reykjavik centre that focus on:

A) Remote controlled LED luminaries

B) WiFi, NarrowBand-IoT and Fibre Optic Broadband connected to lampposts

C) Sensors on lampposts to measure pedestrian, bicycle and car patterns, weather, air quality and noise


At this stage the municipality needs answers regarding the infrastructure for electrical (400/230V) and fibre optic cables which needs to be finalized in the coming days:

  • Is there a 24/7 electrical power in poles with Smart City solutions?
  • Is there a special power cable for Smart City equipment in new street lighting systems?
  • How is the electrical power supply for Smart City equipment solved in older systems?
  • Have you connected fibre optic cables to poles or is the data transmission mainly wireless? If fibre optic cables in poles – how is the underground system for pipes? Pole to pole or from every pole to connecting box? What is the density of poles?
  • Are there two service openings in new poles for Smart City solutions? If so, where are they located on the pole?


All answers from other cities based on knowledge and lessons learned are welcome!
