Empower smart city success

Build the shared technology foundation for your smart city services

The success of a smart city depends on how well its services operate, which means it’s crucial to build a foundation that enables smart services to perform at their best. Nokia can help you develop a flexible, scalable, secure ICT infrastructure that will interconnect sensors, people and applications as well as simplify the development and management of new smart city applications.

Challenge: Delivering on the promise of advanced technologies

Universal broadband, big data analytics, the cloud, and the Internet of Things (IoT) all have the potential to help cities meet their toughest challenges. However, incomplete broadband connectivity, siloed legacy transport networks and IoT platforms, or vendor lock-in can seriously limit your ability to develop new smart city services and lead to increased investment.

Solution: A shared, secure, standards-based infrastructure

The Nokia smart city framework enables your new smart city services to operate at their best — at optimal cost. It focuses on extending and upgrading wireless broadband access, as well as allowing use of a converged IP-based network for greater efficiency. It can also incorporate cloud capabilities for increased operating agility, and offers a single IoT platform for collecting and analyzing data coming from all sensors and devices.
