Leading research, articles, and blogs all point to Smart Cities seeing significant growth in 2018. The IoT (internet of things) ecosystems are rapidly increasing, putting pressure on government and cities to expand their infrastructure to encompass more technology into their operations. From public Wi-Fi networks, to smart lighting systems, traffic condition sensors, to security systems, cities are revolutionizing how we interact with our public areas.

We work with you to make your city, town, park, boardwalk, or government building a more integrated experience for vendors, staff, or the public. We ensure that your public network communicates your messaging effectively while your private network provisions resources appropriately for various management systems.

Smart cities and Wi-Fi connected areas are the way of the future. Let's make them a reality together.

We're here to ensure that our solutions fit the Wi-Fi expectations of your users so that they can capture the beauty of your location to share with their friends and family.
Engage with Mobile Apps
Leverage the capital that you've spent on your mobile application by asking Wi-Fi users to authenticate using this platform. If that doesn't suit you, pushing your users to the app once they've completed their authentication gets more eyes on your app, which in turn increases download rates. You engage your users and maximize on your app investment while users gain access to the important information that you have to share.
Imagine reaching all of your stakeholders with a single platform in a single instance. Sometimes you need to communicate quickly and effectively to the public. In these situations, using our notification tools to blast a message to users on the Wi-Fi network of an upcoming event, emergency protocol, or general communication cuts down on management time, while reaching a large target audience.
Sometimes you'd like to communicate with the public in a non-invasive or emergent way. In this case, adding a survey to your Wi-Fi authentication process allows you to gain valuable and actionable information from your users in a minimally invasive way.

Boost Social Media Engagement
The reality of today is that individuals want to immediately share their experiences with their social media friends. Posting rarely happens a few days later, as the experience is lost in the sea of everything else. By providing a public Wi-Fi network in your city or park, you're ensuring that visitors have the ability to post, like, stream, share, and comment about your location. This increases your awareness with their social networks, which brings more travelers to your location.
Implement New Technology

Smart energy with lighting provides cities with information about usage assisting with management and replacement times, reducing costs. Traffic monitoring and smart parking tools allow make commuting in busy cities a more pleasant and timely experience, ensuring that your business commuters are able to get to work on time.
