Smart communities are cities, counties, sports venues, college campuses and corporate facilities that leverage technologies to better engage with citizens. Verizon helps public-and private-sector planners increase economic development, drive citizen engagement and promote sustainability with our suite of smart city solutions. In addition to the IoT and M2M technologies we’ve developed, we’ve also acquired companies like Sensity, an IoT-based platform that supports intelligent LED sensors and other smart city solutions, and LQD WiFi, which makes interactive kiosks that inspire interactive community engagement. We’re developing viable and comprehensive smart platforms that help you unify disparate systems, use resources more efficiently and address an array of community challenges.
With Verizon Smart Cities and Communities, you can collect critical data and gain near real-time visibility into vital operations. This helps you streamline the decision-making process and respond more quickly. For example, if a water pipe breaks, sensors will be able to detect the sudden pressure change and notify public works officials, who could then dispatch the closest field crew for repair. In the event of area flooding, residents could receive alerts, traffic lights could be adjusted to steer drivers toward safety and digital signage could be used for information sharing. This is one of the many ways in which smart cities technology can help communities become more resilient.
When a city is a truly smart city, it is able to collect data from IoT and connected machine technologies. Communities can benefit from revenue generation opportunities, make efficient use of limited resources and attract businesses, residents and workers.
