How Cisco Reduces Air Pollution With a Digital Twin Created Using Python, LoRa, Google Cloud, and InfluxDB
Session date: Oct 04, 2022 08:00am (Pacific Time)
Cisco is the worldwide leader in IT and networking technology. Their hardware, software, and services are used to help provide easy access to information anywhere and anytime. Nearly every internet connection in the UK uses Cisco technology and they are investing in projects to support innovation — including smart cities, transportation, healthcare, manufacturing, and cybersecurity. There is a team dedicated to improving sustainability and renewable energy practices within the organization.
Cisco aims to help customers reduce their carbon footprint, improving operational efficiency, addressing health and safety within roadways construction sites. Cisco’s solutions are being used to collect metrics about the environment, construction activities, GPS, and machine vibration. Discover how Cisco is using InfluxDB to aggregate sensor, telematic, and network data to measure and reduce noise pollution generated by excavators and large machinery. Their solutions are being used to help collect air pollution, air pressure, CO2, NO2, O2, PM, O3, SO2, humidity, barometric pressure, and temperature data. Cisco’s goals include improving air quality, health, and safety at construction sites.
Join this webinar as Ehsan Fazel dives into:
- How to ingest metrics from networks’ routers into a time series platform
- Overall architecture of the IoT monitoring system
- Best practices to collect and analyze industrial IoT sensor data using LoRa at the edge — learn how to collect noise pollution metrics
- How to overcome challenges for remote sites without reliable power and communication
- Tips on how to use an SDK to send data to/from InfluxDB for cybersecurity analysis
Systems Architect, Cisco
Ehsan Fazel has over 20 years of experience in the IT industry starting from network engineer, then into consulting and now as a Systems Architect in the sales organization. Ehsan was born in the UK and completed his schooling in Iran - including a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. He ventured into IT and networking since 2001 starting with Internet Service Providers during their boom and then working as a customer solution engineer for various telcos. Ehsan joined Cisco as a customer support engineer in 2010 at Learning at Cisco, overseeing all aspects of operations for expert-level certification (also known as CCIE). In his most recent engagement, Ehsan is creating a data visualisation pipeline that ingests sensor data and parses it in order to create a real-time view of the environmental data for roadway construction sites.
