Why we join

For the forthcoming Digital Day, together with VBZ (Zurich Public Transport) we will be presenting our innovative Smart City Zurich projects that will make everyday life easier and provide new opportunities. Based on our ultra-fast fibre-optic network, ewz is establishing a LoRaWAN (long range wide area network) which has already been used in a few pilot projects. They include a public wifi network for the VBZ, air quality and water level metering, as well as a smart parking facility that identifies vacant parking spaces (Smart Parking).
