Great Outdoor Wi-Fi is your Start to a Great Connected Community

Around the world, cities are evaluating how to leverage smart technology to enhance citizens lifestyle, increase economic growth and make the city more efficient. The possibilities are limitless with advanced technology in smart lighting, traffic and parking systems, public safety and much more.

A great starting point for cities is to deploy public Wi-Fi. Public Wi-Fi is a great way to create a more vibrant community and also connect citizens, businesses and visitors. But the benefits of Wi-Fi don’t stop there. Once the Wi-Fi network infrastructure is in place, it can be used to enable other smart city applications such as public safety / IP Video, traffic & parking controls, air quality and many others.
