With year-to-year funding constantly scrutinized and up for debate, cities and other public sector organizations are benefiting from increased efficiencies created by wireless networking and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
“Smart City” is the term most commonly tied to the communities and regions that are using sensors, M2M technology, wireless connectivity, and data to heighten efficiencies, save taxpayer money, protect the environment, and better serve individuals and families. These communities are capitalizing on the ways in which innovation and collaboration can improve quality of life and economic well-being.
This white paper explores the current and potential benefits of wireless network technologies and the IoT to expand efficiencies and open up new possibilities for public sector organizations such as cities, counties, states, and federal government. It also takes a look at the network challenges facing these agencies, and offers solutions and best practices to mitigate these challenges.
