Future Networks – IoT Asset Management


Future Networks – IoT Asset Management

Dublin Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown

Dún Laoghaire – Rathdown County Council is building out a “Radio Frequency Internet-of-Things Mesh Network” throughout the County. The network will be built using the current street lighting network and will allow for IoT devices, for example air or water temperature sensors, or readings from water, electricity or gas metres to relay information to the Council.

Project Activities

In partnership with Enterprise Ireland, under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) programme, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council put a pre-commercial procurement challenge to the market, seeking to identify a low-cost solution to facilitate connections over the network.

Two companies successfully secured funding under the SBIR programme; msemicon and The Convex Lens, both of which are working closely with the Council to develop innovative, low-cost solutions that will support the network roll-out.

The first use-case to be tested will be the deployment of “crack sensors” to monitor the structural integrity of council buildings.


The intended impact of this project is to improve data collection about the environment, services and council assets, allowing for proactive decision-making, reduced costs and consumption and to help future-proof the County.
