Paradox Engineering and Oracle CONTRIBUTE TOWARD FUTURE PROOF Smart city initiatives

Addressing energy saving concerns and improving liveability, sustainability and the city's economy.

Novazzano, DATE - Paradox Engineering SA, a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) is working with Oracle to approach the growing Smart City market with world-class Smart City solutions, wireless sensor network solutions, smart metering and connectivity, building a future proof multipurpose control system and a scalable platform enabling intelligent, innovative and integrated services to citizens. 


Acknowledging Paradox Engineering's technology vision and innovative approach, Oracle recognizes the role Paradox Engineering's offering can play in the framework of the Oracle Smart City Platform solution. The combination of Paradox Engineering's PE.AMI and Oracle's Smart City Platform integrated solutions is designed to provide an answer for open and comprehensive Smart City initiatives immediately addressing energy saving concerns and improving liveability, sustainability and the city's economy.

Energy-efficiency imperatives, legislative pressures and environmental treaties are changing the way cities think about urban services to become "sentient". Municipalities are increasingly looking for dynamic, smart solutions to easily optimize public services and utilities in terms of liveability, energy consumption and operational costs, also preserving the existing urban landscape.

Paradox Engineering's PE.AMI is a multipurpose and bidirectional broadband/narrowband wireless sensor network platform enabling the 'Internet of Things' concept providing native interoperability through open standards. It collects, transports and delivers information from any smart and non-smart urban appliances (including streetlights, gas, water and electricity meters, EV chargers, traffic cabinets and cameras, and many more) allowing the implementation of various urban services on the same network. PE.AMI collects data into Oracle databases for upstream processing by Oracle's rich set of business intelligence and business operation solutions.

Connectivity is the key to a Citywide Nervous System infrastructure, collecting and sharing feedback from all possible sources the basis, measuring and sensing the actual quality of life in a city the key driver for actual change.

Oracle's Smart City Platform provides all ingredients to establish a Sentient City Network, allowing cities to become livable to their residents. Starting with traditional City Service and City Operations, the Citizen Empowerment and Sustainable City capabilities of the platform are at the basis of further innovation and ignite the collaborative creativity of both cities and residents. The City Platform supports the joint responsibility held by citizens and governments to shape the city of the future today.

With Paradox Engineering's solutions, the Oracle Smart City Platform can provide a unified and complete system helping cities to become Smart by implementing advanced urban services (intelligent street lighting, advanced meter reading, public parking and public transport management, and many more), managed through integrated city operations for an improved citizen experience. The way Oracle engineers their industry solutions is a showcase of how hardware and software work together to provide innovation and simplification at lower costs.

"We are very glad that Oracle recognizes our technology and mission to help provide unique and innovative solutions to help fit customers' requirements," said Gianni Minetti, President and CEO of Paradox Engineering. "The use of PE.AMI within the Oracle Smart City Platform allows cities to turn their urban services into a smart network. While fully adhering to open standards and leveraging the 'Internet of Things', this offers the opportunity to develop a future proof, scalable and multipurpose architecture. PE.AMI represents the ideal pillar for any Smart City initiatives".

The combination of Paradox Engineering and Oracle can affect cities that decide to become "sentient:" enhancing liveability and exploiting the power of information, transforming a city into a green city and uncovering the Network of Sensors, extending the "Internet of Things" to urban services by establishing a two way machine-to-machine system, it boosts sustainability facilitating cross-departmental and third parties collaboration on facts, sharing knowledge and solutions as well as big data. It helps support economy becoming a backbone to stimulate innovative initiatives of citizens and entrepreneurs and unlocking the value of data.

Collaboration between Paradox Engineering and Oracle started with the pilot project that is being deployed in San Francisco for public lighting infrastructure remote management and other urban services. Endorsed by the San Francisco Public Utility Commission, this project is piloting a secure wireless communication network to monitor and control different urban services such as street lighting, electric vehicles charging stations, electricity meters, traffic signals, and more.
