- Smart Grid
Modernization of the electric grid provides long-term value with end-to-end management, control and monitoring of power from creation to the point at which it’s used, providing improved operational efficiencies and reduced carbon output.
- Municipal Utilities
Centralized utility meter monitoring and management improves resource conservation, reduces operating costs, enables faster and more accurate pinpointing of problems, and results in better overall customer service.
- Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
Improving traffic flow, reducing vehicle emissions, and synchronizing the timing of traffic signals to expedite the way for public transit and emergency vehicles are just a few of the applications and benefits of an ITS system. Video applications can be added to the network for traffic observation as well as public safety applications such as red light runner monitoring.
- Public Safety
Providing mobile pubic safety workers – police, fire, emergency -- with high-speed access to critical information increases officer and community safety and can help save lives. Filing of reports from the field enables patrol officers to spend more time in the community rather than at the precinct.
- Video Surveillance
Enables centralized monitoring of areas (high crime, public schools, municipal buildings, etc.) without increasing workforce; video can also be used provide solid evidence in court cases.
- Mobile Workforce
Provides access to the same office applications from the field – the ability to complete and file reports and download information significantly improves their effectiveness in serving the community. With more than 50% of city workers mobile, this can translate to significant cost savings and improvement in city services.
- Public Access
Can be used for economic development to help drive people to a business district; or to extend Internet access within under privileged communities, encouraging education and computer literacy.
