Openness & interoperability
Topkapi SCADA software offers many possibilities to interface with any type of application or hardware to which it can be associated.
How can the potential of new information technologies be used to respond to current urban issues related to the smart city: energy management, mobility and transportation, environmental considerations, etc.?
The focus is on improving "the quality of life of city-dwellers by making the city more adaptive and efficient", according to the CNIL*. The well-being of citizens is therefore the priority: air quality, noise pollution, carbon footprint, availability and access to basic services such as water or energy at lower cost, urban mobility, security, etc.
To be attractive, cities must evolve: this is a political and societal challenge. In France, regulations guide the actions to be taken: the law on energy transition for green growth, the tertiary decree, the decree of 27 January 2012 on the efficiency of drinking water networks, self-monitoring of sewerage networks, OpenData, etc.
In France, the CNIL answers this question once again: "with the help of new technologies based on an ecosystem of objects and services". At the heart of the matter: data. The new services are based on increasingly important instrumentation. This results in a high production of data that must be collected and then analysed in order to maintain technical assets in operational condition and also to improve them. The control of data, whether environmental, energy or demographic, is becoming essential.
In order to achieve operational efficiency, the ideal solution is to have a single software platform that is multi-business, scalable and interoperable to concentrate and exploit all data. Topkapi meets these needs perfectly and guarantees the digital sovereignty of local authorities.
Monitoring environmental indicators for water, air, noise or weather, waste management or public lighting, controlling heating networks, intelligent buildings, analysing urban mobility are all areas that can be controlled with Topkapi. The Topkapi software platform enables multi-source data to be aggregated into performance indicators for the precise and "smart" management of smart cities. The result is comfort, time savings and money savings through a global control of assets.
