LEZ – Low Emission Zones for smart cities and urban areas

Zonas de Bajas Emisiones (ZBE) para ciudades inteligentes y áreas urbanas


A low emissions zone (LEZ) is an urban area in which vehicle access, circulation and parking restrictions are applied to improve air quality and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions , in accordance with the classification of vehicles by its emissions level in accordance with the provisions of the current General Vehicle Regulations.

Law 7/2021, of May 20, on climate change and energy transition establishes that municipalities with more than 50,000 inhabitants, municipalities with more than 20,000 inhabitants when the limit values ​​of the pollutants regulated in Royal Decree 102/2011 are exceeded. , of January 28 and the island territories will adopt sustainable urban mobility plans before 2023.

These zones are delimited by specific signs and apply access, circulation and parking restrictions to vehicles according to their environmental label.

Matrix Electrónica in collaboration with our partners offers a range of products to efficiently manage EPZs, improving their effectiveness and efficiency.

Our products include:

  • Access control: Switches and sensors identify vehicles that comply with restrictions and allow them access to the EPZ.
  • Mobility management: Sensors and industrial computers collect traffic data in EPZs and optimise vehicle circulation.
  • Air quality: Sensors collect data on air quality in the EPZ and assess the impact of restrictions..

Layer 2 Switch and Layer 3 Switch Which Switch to choose?

What is a Switch?

A switch is a device used to connect several devices in a local network. The switch allows communication between them and the exchange of information and resources.

There are different types of switches, two of the most common are Layer 2 switches and Layer 3 switches. These designations refer to the operating levels and processing capacity of the switches in relation to the OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) reference model.

The choice between a Layer 2 and a Layer 3 switch will depend on the specific needs of the network and the functions required for its proper operation. A Layer 2 switch focuses on communication within a local network using MAC addresses, while a Layer 3 switch goes further and can perform routing between networks using IP addresses.

Layer 2 vs. Layer 3 Switch: Features and Differences

– Layer 2 Switch

A Layer 2 switch (also known as a data link level switch) is used to connect network devices in a LAN (local area network). Its primary function is to send and receive data frames between devices on the same local network. Layer 2 switches use the MAC address of a device to determine which port to send a data frame to.

– Layer 3 Switch

A Layer 3 switch (also known as a network level switch) is used to route data packets between different networks. Layer 3 switches are able to analyse data packets to determine the best network path to send them to their final destination. These switches use IP addresses to make routing decisions.

The main difference between a layer 2 switch and a layer 3 switch is their ability to operate at different layers of the OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) model. While a layer 2 switch focuses on the data link level, a layer 3 switch operates at the network level.

When to choose a Layer 2 switch and a Layer 3 switch?


Characteristics Layer 2 switch Layer 3 switch
Principal function Connect devices on a LAN Route data packets between different networks
OSI model layer Layer 2 (data link layer) Layer 3 (network layer)
Addresses used MAC addresses IP addresses
Make decisions of Destination port based on MAC address Network route based on IP address
Traffic management Congestion control and loop prevention Congestion control, loop prevention and QoS (quality of service)
Scalability Limited due to the size of the LAN Higher, due to the ability to route between networks
Security Limited as all devices can be accessed on the same LAN Increased, due to the ability to filter and control traffic between networks
Cost Minor, due to its simplicity and limited functionality Higher, due to its routing capability and advanced functionality

Network Switch Applications for IoT

  • Connect IoT devices: Switches can be used to connect and manage IoT devices on a network. With the number of devices expected to be connected, switches must be able to handle large amounts of traffic and provide high availability.
  • Real-time data processing : To process large amounts of data in real time, which is essential in IoT applications such as temperature control, lighting, etc.
  • Improved energy efficiency : To optimize the energy consumption of IoT devices. This can be accomplished by turning devices on or off as needed, and by allocating resources based on power consumption.

Network switch applications in different verticals.

La elección entre un switch de capa 2 o uno de capa 3 dependerá de los requisitos específicos de la red y las necesidades de cada industria.

The choice between a Layer 2 or a Layer 3 switch will depend on the specific requirements of the network and the needs of each industry.

– Data Center

Layer 2 switch:

  • Connection of servers and network storage devices.
  •  Segmentation of virtual networks (VLAN) for greater security and efficiency.

Layer 3 switch:

  • Implementation of virtualization and cloud technologies.
  • Traffic control and packet prioritization to ensure optimal network performance.

– Industry 4.0

Layer 2 switch:

  • Connection of IoT devices, sensors and actuators in industrial environments.
  • Communication and control of machines and automated systems.

Layer 3 switch:

  • Remote supervision and management of processes and production lines.
  • Implementation of industrial Ethernet networks to improve efficiency and monitoring.

– Transport

Layer 2 switch:

  • Communication systems in public and private transport.
  • Connection of security cameras and video surveillance systems.

Layer 3 switch:

  • Traffic control and intelligent signage.
  • Network management for vehicle fleets and logistics.

– Energy

Layer 2 switch:

  • Monitoring and control of energy distribution networks.
  • Integration of smart meters and energy management systems.

Layer 3 switch:

  • Communication between power generation and distribution devices.
  • Implementation of smart grids for efficient energy management.

Which switch to choose? 

The choice between a Layer 2 or a Layer 3 switch will depend on the specific requirements of the network and the needs of each industry.

At Matrix Electrónica we are specialists and we can help you choose the type of switch you need. Contact us and we will find the best switch option on the market for your specific needs

Trends in IoT for Smart Photovoltaic Plants

Smart Photovoltaic Plants

The smart PV industry has been experiencing steady growth in recent years and is expected to continue in the near future. With the increase in demand for renewable energy and the need to reduce environmental impact, IoT solutions are becoming an essential part of the monitoring and control of these plants.

In 2023, IoT trends for Smart Photovoltaic Plants are expected to include the use of gateways and sensors to improve the efficiency and profitability of these installations. IoT gateways act as a bridge between the sensors and the plant monitoring and control system, allowing two-way communication and real-time data analysis. Sensors , meanwhile, collect information about solar panel performance and environmental conditions, allowing plant operators to make informed decisions to improve performance.

IoT sensors and smart gateways, such as WebdynSunPM , allow constant monitoring of energy production, panel performance and early detection of failures.

IoT solution developers and integrators have great potential in this ever-growing industry and need to be aware of these trends in order to take full advantage of them.
