The network is universal. It serves as the foundation for a full range of applications and operations – anytime, anywhere, and on any device. Cisco provides smart, powerful network functions that make it possible to create completely networked communities of public and private users. Cities and municipalities that use the network as a platform for planning, setting up and managing everyday processes greatly increase the efficiency of community life: It enables them to boost employee productivity, improve access to and availability of public services, and benefit from new revenue models. With Smart+Connected Communities, Cisco is taking an approach that unites important areas of public life, such as healthcare services, educational institutions and government agencies. This approach helps to solve societal challenges like healthcare, education and ecological sustainability. More than 100 cities worldwide already rely on Cisco’s comprehensive business concept.
The approach is based on eight innovative solutions: real estate, utilities, transportation, safety and security, learning, health, government and sports and entertainment. Cities and municipalities can deploy these modules to suit their objectives. The modules enable a variety of solutions to be tailored individually to meet a city or municipality’s specific requirements. They can also be used to build a comprehensive, future-proof system that fulfills modern expectations. You can find out more about this approach in the Customer Briefing Center.
