Our testbed is made for plug and play. By testing in an urban environment, you have the possibility to both develop your products and showcase it to the world.
An area bursting with activity
The testbed in Kista Science City is where it all happens. The map below lets you explore all the things that are going on. You can see the infrastructure installed to make it easy to show proofs of concept and test new solutions, and of course check out all the projects taking advantage of that infrastructure. In addition to this, there are several showrooms around Kista Science City that are run by our friends and partners. They are open to visitors, some for walk-ins and some after appointment. Go ahead and explore the possibilities!
This makes it possible
The backbone of our testbed is the fiber stations. Along the street Kistagången, we have 15 different access points to a dark fiber network, provided by Stokab. This is where your hardware will be living. These access points typically consist of a “hardware box” where network access and electricity is available, as well as a place to put the actual sensors, such a light pole or a bus stop.
Thanks to our partners, we have access to LoRaWAN, provided by Digital Nordix. Telia Company provides Narrowband IoT and a WiFi-network. Ericsson provides access to their 5G network. 6LoWPAN is provided by Itron and Wireless@KTH provides an open 2G network. In short: whatever connectivity your device needs, it’s available in Kista.
Our testbed is made for plug and play. By testing in an urban environment, you have the possibility to both develop your products and showcase it to the world. Our testbed is made for plug and play, meaning it is open for your participation, and all the necessary infrastructure is in place.
We believe that testing needs a purpose, which is why we have close ties to the public sector and try to match their needs with innovative solutions provided by SMEs. We believe this ensures that the solutions that are being tested is relevant.
