Let’s Get Smarter—Together!

As communications networks grow more powerful and ubiquitous, “Smart Cities” are in the vanguard of building on those foundations to improve the lives of citizens and visitors. Using senors and high-speed broadband networks, data can be collected and evaluated to help increase efficiencies and sustainability, and to manage services such as lighting, video surveillance, waste collection, traffic and water quality management. Imagine citizens being able to avoid traffic jams, easily find parking spots, and report potholes, broken sprinklers or overflowing waste cans.

Cable Operators are Best Suited to Power the World’s Smart Cities.

Among the key elements in a successful Smart Cities strategy are: robust connectivity and strong IoT networks that can transform communities’ operations and efficiencies; the ability to create collaborative working environments that include technology vendors and multiple network providers; and problem-solving prowess that can cut through the complexity and cost of Smart Community/IoT deployments in public-private partnerships – creating and scaling vibrant Smart Cities that enrich the lives of residents.

No other network can match cable’s Smart Cities capabilities. Alone or in partnership with 5G or other wireless network providers, cable operators possess wired and wireless resources to deliver Smart Community / IoT solutions NOW:

  • Uniquely flexible, powerful, and cost-efficient networks.  Cable’s 1 gigabit service today will soon morph to a 10G (10 gigabit) platform of the future. That powerful broadband network is the foundation required for cities to deploy smart applications quickly and reliably. No matter what the technical requirements are, cable’s platform has the capacity and speed to handle it all.
  • An unparalleled ecosystem of partners. Cable has forged the technology know-how, the high-tech relationships, the community partnerships and the ubiquitous network reach that can expedite how city managers can harness the resources needed to turn the promise of a smart city into reality.
  • Decades of experience deploying and supporting network-enabled connectivity, applications and services for residences, businesses, community associations and governments.

Why is this important?
