Engie experiments Green PI to connect rural areas

As part of an IoT (Internet of Things) project, Engie chooses Green PI, an easy to deploy while affordable Internet infrastructure, to bring wireless Internet and to connect sensors in rural areas.

The experiment took place in a village of north-central France. Green PI’s low power routers (YOI) were installed on house’s facades to extend the Internet coverage of the town hall to the main street. YOI connected automatically with each other using an advanced wireless Device-to-Device technology removing expensive network cabling. Green PI’s patented routing software then ensured the transfer of videos, calls, and data over multiple hops (up to 30!). Citizens could connect to Internet using Wi-Fi and 3G and walk down the street without being disconnected thanks to Green PI’s handoff. Engie also used Green PI infrastructure as backhaul for its energy management sensor network.

Thanks to its cable free and self-configuring properties, Green PI reduces up to 10 times the cost of wireless Internet infrastructure, facilitating the digitalization of rural areas as well as emerging countries and of any other white spots such as trains, planes, ships, etc.

Green PI deployment in the city of Meaux in partnership with Orange.

As an answer to the traffic growth and Internet equipment saturation, a new Internet infrastructure becomes necessary. Based on people solidarity, the Participatory Internet is an innovative solution that copes with infrastructure overload.

Green PI, the Participatory Internet developed by Green Communications comes out for the first time in a shopping street during a city fair. Green PI is deployed thanks to the voluntary participation of merchants.

They provide visitors with Wi-Fi hotspots by simply displaying an Indoor YOI in the front window of their stores. In return, they get their own information emphasized with local content hosted directly inside the Indoor YOI.

The operation organized in concert with Orange, the City of Meaux and Green Communications takes place during “Meaux et Merveilles” fest from December 4, 2015 to January 5, 2016.

Find here more information about the “Meaux et Merveilles” program.

Recent deployment: Green PI for emergencies with Groupe INTRA

Groupe INTRA chose Green Communications to do the wireless coverage of their annual nuclear accident first response event last June at the Chinon EDF Nuclear Plant.

The Group of Robotics INTervention on Accidents (INTRA) simulated the fast deployment of a fleet of robotics machines on the field of a nuclear accident and used Green PI technology to forward real time videos and restore quickly communications on the field.

Within minutes, Green PI embedded routers (GreenBox) were deployed in the area and real time videos streamed from drones and robots were transferred to a control station. Green PI wireless network also provided rescuers with embedded & autonomous applications and services such as chat, VoIP, videoconference, video streaming, etc.

Find here a short video about the Group INTRA deployment.
