Just Log on - Making life in Kaohsiung safer and more convenient for all無線世界任我行--全台第一個「行動寬頻城市」，明年底出現在高雄市
The Kaohsiung Wireless Network Platform, which will eventually form a database for public information as well as providing safer and more convenient life for the residents of Kaohsiung, has been created in cooperation with the Police, the Transportation and Fire Bureau as well as the Information Office and the Public Works Bureau. The Transportation Bureau has chosen the eASPNet as being the best company to create this facility, and it has already signed the contract with the city government.
The Mayor of Kaohsiung City, Frank Hsieh, announced that Kaohsiung would be equipped as a intelligent city in terms of its wireless network environment. It is the first application of a government information system, aimed at serving the public in digital technology. Hopefully, by the end of 2005, Kaohsiung will apply to be admitted by the World Teleport Association into the Intelligent Communities, which represent various cities throughout the world.
The Cost of Installing the Wireless Network Platform totals NT.130 million dollars. It will be situated at the control center of the Transportation Bureau, and its completion data is estimated as being nest year at the latest.
The Wireless Network Platform is designed to place the wireless environment in the existing street-lamp or traffic sing posts in order to reduce the number of additional poles, which would often alter the existing landscape of the city. In addition, various bureaus in the city government would be able to share the database of monitoring facilities through this system.
The Transportation Bureau will start the Wireless Network installation soon. Beginning from Lingya, Cianjin and Sinsing Districts, it will eventually expand over the entire city. By the middle of December, one would be able to enjoy browsing the Internet at the city hall and the city council. Singuang Districts would also be completed and tested online. The remaining eight districts are scheduled to be completed in the year 2005.
市長謝長廷宣示高雄市將成為「行動高雄智慧型城市」。若設置完成，高雄市將是全球首座以「市政公務」為建置出發點的無線網路城市，預定明年底，高雄市無線網路共同平台建置計畫向世界通訊端協會﹝World Teleport Association, WTA﹞提出申請，將高雄市加入2004年智慧城市評鑑。
