New Allied Telesis partnership helps shape Smart City future

“We are at the start of a revolution with Smart Gigabit Cities around the globe."

Allied Telesis has become a Lead Partner in the Smart Cities Council (SCC), an organisation of thought leaders that advises cities on ways to thrive as their populations grow, upgrading ageing infrastructure with innovative technology and solutions.

According to the IP/Ethernet switching solutions provider, as population expands around the world and continues to trend toward concentrating in urban areas, new challenges emerge to improve the daily life in cities.

The SCC envisions a world where digital technology and intelligent design have been harnessed to create smart, sustainable cities with high-quality living and high-quality jobs, promoting liveability, workability, and sustainability.

Allied Telesis maintains a long history of helping cities implement their visions of interconnected, smarter operations on a citywide basis with cities around the world deploying the company’s IP/Ethernet switching solutions network infrastructure over which the video cameras and other applications run.

“We are at the start of a revolution with Smart Gigabit Cities around the globe,” says Philip Yim, senior vice president, Global R&D Program Management, Allied Telesis.

“Cities that enable people to communicate at Gigabit speeds on wireless and wireline networks are well positioned to attract the best and brightest business leaders, while enabling economic prosperity.

“The Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Gigabit Cities are synonymous, and represent key aspects of any city revitalisation process.”
