The solutions are there – let’s use them!

Whether it’s to do with Smart City concepts that make our cities more habitable, resource-efficient and sustainable; digital technologies that support older people in their everyday lives in the course of demographic change; or digital platforms that promote cohesion: Discover selected use cases that illustrate how and where the Internet industry is already part of the solution.



Hosting in the Wind Turbine

Hosting in the Wind Turbine

Together with WestfalenWIND, Zattoo is working on the climate-neutral broadcasting of the future. Through the green IT project windCORES of the wind farm operator WestfalenWIND, the TV streaming provider Zattoo is bringing its data centre directly into a wind turbine. And in doing so, it demonstrates that climate-friendly streaming is possible.

Swiss Future Farm – Digital Agriculture of the Future

On the Swiss Future Farm in Täniko, 5G applications from Huawei are being tested. With 5G, connected drones are monitoring fields with video cameras, and are thereby enabling the targeted and resource-saving use of water, fertilisers, pesticides and harvesters.

Innovative Heating Concept

Data Centres’ Waste Heat Utilisation

Intelligent energy for cities – the utilisation of waste heat from data centres makes it possible. This is demonstrated by a pilot project run by Mainova and Telehouse in Frankfurt. In future, at least 60 % of the new buildings and commercial units in Frankfurt’s Westville district will receive waste heat from the neighbouring data centre.

IoT sensor technology facilitates safe everyday life for older people

In older age, many people would like to live as safely and autonomously as possible. However, from a certain point in time, an increasing number of older people need support in their everyday lives – be it a reminder to take medication, or assistance if they fall in their own home. The VIVAI AG business case shows how people who need assistance can be supported in their everyday lives by intelligent voice assistants, chatbots and IoT sensors.
