Evolution toward the Smart City

Around the globe, more and more people are moving into the cities. This trend is forecast to continue throughout the upcoming decades. Against this background, the term "Smart City" has been coined to denote innovative development concepts aimed at making cities more efficient, more advanced, greener and more social. Important factors contributing to the smart networking of technical infrastructures include, for example, digitisation and communications which make living and administration in large conurbations significantly easier.


The topic of "Infrastructure" covers a large range of applications in the fields of water, gas, energy, communications and transport. ROSE Systemtechnik supplies enclosure solutions that are used to protect sensitive electronic systems in public areas, in tunnels, on roads and railways, in vehicles and, for example, in car-park sensor systems.


Just as diverse as the applications found in the city are, also, the requirements made on ROSE Systemtechnik's enclosures. These include a range of criteria, including, for example:

  • Protection against outdoor environmental influences, such as dust, rain and UV radiation
  • Protection against accumulations of water, in applications in the soil, for example
  • Protection against vibration, when used, for example, close to roads
  • Protection against impacts and shock
  • Fire-safety, in rail tunnels, for example

Special enclosures for WiFi signal boosters

ROSE Systemtechnik also develops special enclosure solutions for suppliers of telecommunications technology, in order to protect signal booster antennas against environmental influences. Heavily frequented locations, such as pedestrian zones and stadiums can thus be covered by means of high-power microcells. This makes it possible to boost the capacity of mobile-telephone networks at hotspots with high levels of data traffic. 

Robust special enclosures developed by ROSE can, if required,

  • feature sizes and shapes tailored to the installation location,
  • special tongue-and-groove sealing systems, in order to meet Degree of Protection IP 68, since drilled holes can fill up with water. 
  • Customised materials, resistant, for example, to de-icing salts, vehicle lubricants and brake dust.
  • Glass-fibre-reinforced polyester materials with a constant permittivity, in order that radio beams, for example, can be emitted from the enclosure.
  • Pressure equalisation elements and other special features
