The TALQ Consortium reveals in a White Paper recently published a whitepaper detailing insights into its global interface standard and certification scheme for managing smart city applications including outdoor lighting networks.
The document explains in detail not only the system architecture and data model, but also its functions and services. It helps cities, solution providers, project planners and other stakeholders understand the concepts and benefits of the Smart City Protocol. The full TALQ Specification Version 2.0 – allowing vendors to easily integrate the protocol in their systems – is available for TALQ member companies together with a powerful Test Suite.
Cities on their way to becoming smart cities want to invest in future-proof, interoperable solutions. As many of the currently available solutions are proprietary, the TALQ Consortium decided to develop the Smart City Protocol to unify multifarious smart city requirements including device commissioning, configuration, control, command, monitoring, scheduled programs as well as data collection. Thanks to this software protocol, cities will be able to choose from device networking solutions available from multiple vendors and control them all through a single Central Management Software (CMS) instance.
