CommunicAsia 2017: ST Electronics Unveils WISX IoT Platform for Smart Cities


Singapore Technologies Electronics Limited (ST Electronics) has launched its World of IoT – Sense & eXchange (WISX IoT) Platform designed to integrate multiple Internet of Things (IoT) solutions into a common platform that facilitates data exchange and analysis. The company announced this at the ongoing CommunicAsia 2017 in Singapore.

Developed to support IoT solutions for smart city initiatives worldwide, the platform aims to enhance city services and improve the quality of life for residents. The platform can be used for applications such as integrated estate management.

The WISX IoT Platform leverages ST Electronics’ extensive experience and knowledge in deploying and operating wireless communications networks for automated utility meters and infrastructure, lighting, public safety and environmental solutions and sensors in Singapore as well as global cities, to provide an intelligent multi-domain platform with advanced communications and cross domain data analytic capabilities to benefit residents.

The platform optimises the management of cities by generating actionable insights for enhanced decision making from the data collected from individual IoT solutions. It also provides a platform for testing smart features of a living environment, enabling city planners to better understand what matters most to people.

Ravinder Singh, President of ST Electronics said, “Our successful track record in deploying more than 15 million wireless communications nodes worldwide in various domains such as utility meters, street lights and environmental monitoring sensors, has given us the expertise to develop a platform that seamlessly integrates IoT solutions across different domains. With the growth of smart cities worldwide, the WISX IoT Platform will better equip city planners with valuable insights so that they can make informed decisions and improve the operational efficiency of city services.”

The WISX IoT platform will be showcased at the CommunicAsia 2017 (Booth 1N3-01), from 23 to 25 May at Marina Bay Sands, where its capabilities will be demonstrated through an Integrated Smart Estate Management case study.

A suite of ST Electronics’ smart solutions comprising indoor and outdoor lightings, automated water and electrical meters, lift monitoring solution, environmental sensors, car parks and security systems will be integrated in the platform as part of an overall Smart Estate showcase.
