• A roadway pole that showcases connected cameras for license plate recognition and for tracking transportation analytics.
• A roadside data center built on top of Cisco DNA.
• A pipe system that showcases a network connected to the fire alarm, a network connected to a tampering meter, and a network connected to a water meter to the public network. The networks provide a variety of different functions.
