Smart Communities solutions

As cities across the world grow bigger and more complex, they are facing new challenges. They have to maintain high standards of livability, resiliency and sustainability. Population growth has impacted city economies, housing and the workforce—but rapid urbanization is also straining resources and stretching budgets. To overcome these obstacles, city planners are turning to the Internet of Things (IoT) to help make systems and processes easier to manage and more efficient.

Verizon Smart Communities solutions help private and public sector planners use IoT technologies to help solve today’s biggest challenges—like energy management, intelligent traffic and transportation and public safety.

The Internet of Things makes city planning smarter.

In the past, the various systems that served a community operated independently, making it difficult to view or figure out the best ways to improve overall efficiency. Smart Communities technologies change all that. Using a powerful combination of advanced networking, cloud, security and device management tools, we can help you:

  • Get visibility across multiple elements of your community.
  • Use near real-time data to help you deploy resources more accurately.
  • Prioritize changes to meet your community’s most pressing needs.
