Smart Cities start with Smart Connectivity

Are you looking to deploy that hot new municipal application for analytics, parking, public Wi-Fi or safety cameras, but don't have budget to connect to the desired location?  Are you planning to deliver internet connection to reach the underserved community for education, health, and economic improvement?  All smart city applications start with a great foundation of reliable connectivity.  Some municipal applications only require small amounts of data or packets, however, increasingly we are seeing the need for in field at location high-definition video and internet or Wi-Fi connections at the location where desired or needed even where low data applications coexist.  This session will focus on unique ways to solve budget constraints for your hot application projects to get funded and launched.

How and Why to Demand Interoperability for a Smarter City

You’re a city manager or planner and would love to lead the way in turning your city into a shining example of a “Smart City.” But there’s so much noise in the market, everyone’s trying to sell you something, and the city has so many disparate applications and systems - it’s hard to know where to start and what to ask for. This session will set you on the right track.

You’ll hear from a diverse panel of independent experts about how cities can specify interoperability between applications, systems, buildings and more. Listen to professionals discuss best practices and the importance of interoperability when specifying solutions so you can optimize costs and benefits for your city.

Broadband Networks

This panel discussion will explore the types of networks that are being funding. These networks range from Fiber Optic based Public Networks to CBRS Private Networks. Major considerations explored will include supply chain, costs per subscriber, user adoption campaigns, network speeds and throughput. The panelists are hands-on with successful deployments and can share best practices and answer detailed questions on what and how to successfully extend broadband connectivity.
