The EDUSI project arises out of the need for a coherent technical structure to the telecommunications network of the Cabanyal-Canyamelar-Cap de França neighborhood of Valencia. It gives connectivity between its different public facilities, and connects them to the existing municipal network.
The designed structure allows for future expansions and provides municipal WiFi service to different areas relevant to the city’s economy and its citizens, thus offering connectivity and smart services in public spaces and council facilities.
The Sustainable and Integrated Urban Development Strategy of the Cabanyal-Canyamelar-Cap de França Neighborhood (EDUSI 3C VALÈNCIA) is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund-ERDF within the framework of the Pluriregional Operational Program España 2014-2020 (POPE). The total amount of actions to be carried out is 30 million euros, of which half come from Comunitarian Funds.
The lines of action of the strategy are based on an integrated approach to economic, environmental, climatic, demographic, social and participatory aspects.
