Building Smart Foundations

To meet the needs of tomorrow's smart cities, it's imperative to implement a multi-purpose, standards-based network infrastructure and IoT technology platform to form the foundation for advanced measurement and sensing activities. Networked street lighting built on a scalable platform creates a citywide network canopy that can be used for a variety of smart city applications, empowering multiple stakeholders including lighting departments, emergency response, and public health to improve quality of life for residents and businesses.

Envision: America

The White House has a plan to unify and unite cities to solve energy, water, waste and air issues—and Itron is a proud supporter again in 2018.
Envision America has announced 10 cities selected to work with leading experts from industry and academia to diagnose needs, uncover solutions and develop new smart initiatives for their community.

Again this year, Itron will play an integral supporting role for Envision America, a program under Envision Charlotte, which has issued a challenge to accelerate deployment of innovative technologies that tackle key challenges, such as reducing traffic congestion, fostering economic growth, managing the effects of a changing climate and improving city services.

Launched in 2016, Envision America is building on the success of its inaugural workshop to drive the success of smart initiatives in America’s cities to tackle energy, water, waste and air challenges.
