Digital Platform for Cities
Within the next 10 years, 70 percent of the world's population will live in urban areas. Cities are facing dramatic social, economic and environmental challenges. To keep pace, they are seeking more efficient ways to manage infrastructure and processes and offer sustainable citizen services.
Based on an intelligent network as the underlying platform for managed city and business services, the Cisco Smart+Connected Communities portfolio of solutions offers a holistic approach to transforming public spaces into smart, connected communities by helping to break down silos between city agencies, people and private companies and to gather, share and act upon a plethora of new data. The goal is the creation of safe, vital spaces in which to live, work, learn and play.
More than 90 cities around the globe thus far -- including Mumbai (India), Toronto (Canada), Chicago (U.S.A.), Hamburg (Germany), Barcelona (Spain), Río de Janeiro (Brazil), Guayaquil (Ecuador), Chengdu (China) and Dubai (U.A.E.) -- have engaged with Cisco and its partners to deploy Smart+Connected Communities solutions and applications to manage city infrastructure including connected parking, traffic, lighting, education, healthcare, safety and security and remote access to government services.
