Plug-fest sees 10 smart city products become TALQ certified

Ten smart city products have been certified TALQ compliant by the TALQ Consortium following its plug-fest event in Spain last month.

According to the consortium, three Central Management Software (CMS) and seven Outdoor Device Networks (ODN) achieved interoperability by implementing version 2 of TALQ’s Smart City Protocol — a RESTful/JSON based application used to exchange data, commands and programs between one or more CMS and ODNs from different vendors for configuration, control, command and monitoring of connected devices in the city.

To receive certification, CMS and ODNs must undergo a two-stage procedure, including exposure to a Test Tool Software that generates protocol reports and an assessment by an expert Certification Work Group to ensure compatibility between all certified products.

The consortium believes this high level of interoperability will help cities avoid being locked into proprietary systems.

The 10 products that passed the TALQ Certification for TALQ Version 2.1.0 in the July plug fest session are:


  • CityLinx from BeeZeeLinx, France
  • City Vision from Capelon, Sweden
  • Smart Firefly from Uvax, Spain


  • Citybox from Bouygues, France
  • Ki from Lucy Zodion, United Kingdom
  • Owlet IoT from Schréder, Belgium
  • Access Point System from Smartnodes, Belgium
  • CA-13 from Uvax, Spain
  • Trilliant TALQ Gateway from Trilliant, Canada
  • Witti TALQ Gateway from Witti, France
