1: Smart street lights are also called multi-function light poles; smart street lights are also called multi-function light poles. After carrying some functions of the smart city, it can achieve "one pole, multiple uses". Smart street lights are the functional extension of multi-functional light poles and are the product of the combination of smart cities and the Internet of Things.

2: Smart street lamps can’t think; smart street lamps can’t think, but it is an important component and carrier of a smart city. The essence of smart cities is a more efficient, healthier, faster, and more sustainable innovative city service system. Smart cities are also an important element of building a smart society.

3: The first technical specification standard for smart street lamps; According to the "Technical Specifications for Smart Street Lamps", the planning, design, and construction of smart street lamps should take the service block as the basic unit to build a smart street lamp system. Through the preparation of special plans for smart street lights, cities and regions clarify the scale and placement of smart street lights, and connect them with related supporting facilities such as pipelines, power supply, transmission, and computer rooms, and synchronize planning, design, and construction to avoid repeated investment in the future.

4: Smart street lamps are also called smart street lamps; smart street lamps are street lamp poles with lighting functions, also called smart street lamps. If the original street lamp is to become a smart street lamp, the light source, and control system must be transformed, and the original address of the street lamp pole can be used to achieve multiple functions. After the intelligent upgrade, it can become a smart street lamp.

5: the characteristics of smart street lamps; smart street lamps are a model of the integration of information and communication technology and traditional urban infrastructure, and they also have the characteristics of full function, intelligence, high cost, and difficult control.

6: the origin of smart street lights; the earliest smart street lights were developed by a German company, only charging piles were installed on ordinary street lights.

7: smart street lamps and 5G group CP; smart street lamps are an important carrier for the deployment of 5G micro base stations, and 5G micro base stations carry 85% of data connections, and the density far exceeds 4G.

8: smart street lights are one of 5G construction carriers; only about 20% of 5G facilities are used for communication between people and 80% are used for communication between people and things, and things and things, and smart street lamps are one of the 5G construction carriers.

 9: The coverage radius of 5G facilities in dense areas of mobile communication users is less than 200 meters. The 5G micro base station mounted on smart street lights can meet the signal coverage requirements, and it is one of the most effective ways to build a smart city.

10: the congenital conditions and applications of smart street lights; smart street lights "have electricity, poles, and nets", which provide carriers for the loading of various smart devices, which can be loaded with many functions, such as lighting, monitoring, 5G micro base stations, Traffic lights, traffic signs, street signs, LED displays, environmental monitoring, emergency calls, broadcasts, inquiries, charging piles, etc.

11: Smart street lights are the best entry point for big data collection in smart cities; smart street light networks go deep into dense urban areas like blood vessels and nerves, providing a wide distribution, optimal location, and low cost for the large-scale deployment of 5G and IoT Site resources and carrying objects will become data terminals for information collection and release.

12: multi-pole integration; smart street lights can solve the pain points of multi-pole forest in urban public space, repeated construction, and impact on the urban landscape, thereby enhancing the city's taste and creating a new city image.

13: The ownership of the equipment, power supply, pipe network, and other property rights of smart street lamps and the main units of management and maintenance are scattered.

14: The reason why smart street lights are still in the pilot; the planning and construction of smart street lights involve departments such as natural resources, housing construction, public security, transportation, urban management, environmental protection, electricity, street lights, and communication operators. Industry, cross-department, cross-level, and cross-regional situations. Among them, complex management and difficult approval are important factors that affect the difficulty of smart street lighting projects.

15: Not only the price of smart street lights is several times or even dozens of times (high cost), but also the number of functional light poles, which requires more social resources.

16: The business model of smart street lights is not clear, and a benign sustainable high-quality development model has not yet been formed, but it can also be profitable.

17: The smart street lamp technical solution is not yet mature. The departmental project is a simple transplant. There is still a lot of room for optimization and improvement of the protection, reliability, and safety of the pole itself.

18: At present, smart street lights lack an overall plan and a small scale naturally form a system, forming an information "island", which forms an obstacle to the construction of future city-level smart street light systems.

19: The government promotes the construction of smart cities, 5G provides technical support, and smart street lights provide 5G carriers, thereby providing opportunities and opportunities for their own development.

20: Which department is responsible for smart street lights is still inconclusive. At the same time, the jurisdiction and profit model of smart street lights are still being explored.

21: Upgrade and transform communication towers into "smart street lights", and continue to support 5G coverage through the "resources + services" comprehensive solution, which can also benefit the informatization development of various industries and create more for the society Great value.

22: The combination of smart street lights, the Internet of Things, drones, and other technologies can facilitate farmers to grasp the growth of crops in time, improve the level of intelligence and refinement of operations, and enhance the efficiency of agricultural production.

23: The combination of smart street lights and the Internet of Vehicles can realize autonomous driving, smart transportation, and smart logistics.

24: Smart street lights are currently being piloted by multiple provinces and cities. By the end of 2019, at least 45 provinces/cities have issued policies involving smart street lights.
