Digital infrastructure

Physical digital infrastructure supports the addition of analogue and digital solutions

Digital touch screen kiosks

Provide interactive content to the public about events, wayfinding, local and community emergency information.

There are four digital kiosks installed in the new Maroochydore city centre.

IoT gateway network

The IoT gateway is a wireless communications network. It enables sensors and devices to communicate at very low power over distances. These sensors send small amounts of data over a wide area and collect valuable information to help council to make better data driven decisions and deliver improved services to our community.​​​​​​​

Council has 17 IoT gateways installed across the region. These gateways provide coverage to several locations, allowing sensors to be deployed more cost effectively.

Multi-function poles

Street poles have evolved over the years from the jumble of wires and lights to multi-function poles. These can be fitted with WiFi, environmental sensors, people and vehicle counters, digital signage, LED lights and optic fibre cable. This removes the need for other poles and signs.

Council has already deployed over 350 multi-function poles in eight locations. This includes 60 wirelessly connected street lights in the new Maroochydore City Centre. These lights brighten and dim when people walk past.
