Smart Communications Playground: Whether human or machine, one communication platform for all

News from Apr. 15, 2013

The competence center NGNI introduces the Smart Communications Playground, a test and development environment for communication services in smart cities.

In the cities of tomorrow not only people communicate with each other, but also increasingly machines. The competence center NGNI offers now with its Smart Communications Playground an environment for communication services, which includes the interaction between people, machines and human and machine.

In the Smart Communications Playground services can be developed and tested for different sectors (e.g., eHealth, automation) and also across industries. The platforms and toolkits may act on top of existing telecommunication networks and environments, as implemented exemplary in the Future Seamless Communication (FUSECO) Playground of NGNI, or as an Over-The-Top (OTT) service environment in the Internet.
