Session Title: Building A Smarter City – How To Get Started Location
Matt Willenbrink, Fybr

Smart city initiatives are about more than technology – they are about improving infrastructure, creating cost effective municipal services, enhancing public transportation, and keeping people safe within their communities. But to realize the full value of IoT and drive innovation, cities must think outside the box and think beyond community verticals like lighting, parking and water management. By strategically taking a holistic approach to smart city planning and implementation, communities can effectively and affordably improve the quality of life while reducing costs and creating new revenue streams.

In this talk, we take an interactive look at how to get started quickly and cost effectively on the smart city journey.
