Description:Cities today are looking to implement smart city initiatives so they can better manage resources and assets; be more efficient and provide residents, businesses and visitors an enhanced city experience and quality of life. To accomplish their smart goals, cities need to have a robust network that blends into the cityscape, avoiding the additional clutter of telecom equipment; and they must do so quickly to minimize disruption. Smart poles, street lighting with wireless as a single infrastructure, can provide the connectivity and backbone for wireless and smart city applications in a form factor people are used to viewing every day.
In this session, we will explore the role street lighting plays on the transformation of cities across the U.S.; the role of fiber networks to support the methodologies to quickly deploy a network for a connected city; and, supply chain’s role in supporting new deployments.
