Smart cities are built on smart networks
Around the world, cities are evaluating how to leverage smart technology to enhance citizens lives, increase economic growth and make their city more efficient. Pervasive connectivity is needed to facilitate increased automation and enable a multitude of applications, whereby data can be gathered from smart devices and sensors embedded in the roadways, power grids, buildings, and other assets. From public facilities such as hospitals, public transport stations to stadiums, music halls and other popular venues – dedicated private networking will be key to creating intelligent and integrated city platforms.

The data insight can then be used for true city innovation to enhance shared services such as health care assistance, security and safety, real-time traffic monitoring and municipal service and environmental management.
Nokia Digital Automation Cloud provides a flexible hybrid business model for private network services and edge computing for everything from small remote sites to large projects and networks. The plug and play network can be easily expanded. Operations do not require special telecommunications skills.
This is what you can expect when you employ Nokia Digital Automation Cloud platform:
Infrastructure retrofit / replacement
Internet of Things connectivity is transforming our municipal and utility infrastructure, enabling technologies like integrated security and control centers, video surveillance of public areas, intelligent traffic management, [showmore]
operation control (for public safety services) as well as video analysis for accurate situational assessment.
It’s bringing us things like smart tools to use energy resources more efficiently in homes and businesses, and connected street lights, where the access points and sensors in lamp poles form a dense network infrastructure generating data that is locally processed based on a horizontal IoT platform. Nokia Digital Automation Cloud provides a secure, digital automation platform with private connectivity to both public and private enterprise to ensure smart city objectives can be met easily and cost effectively. Add on our Nokia Drone Networks application and you have a smart city solution that provides aerial insight through live streaming and analytics of crowded events and road traffic, construction site inspection, water and air quality monitoring and more.
