Smart Cities are urban areas that use IoT devices to collect data, and then use that data to manage assets and resources efficiently. These networks are being used for everything from water treatment to measuring power consumption, and are even used to detect crime.
Smart cities are huge projects with many sub-networks, network owners, and participants all providing coverage for the population and machines using the network. In such a complex environment, there is no centralized platform for the management or deployment of these large mesh networks.
Building networks quickly and efficiently is difficult, and there are many challenges to overcome. Even something as simple as gathering information can be hard.
Fieldforce provides a platform that enables end-to-end management of all Smart City deployment and operations activities. From network design, through operations and maintenance, Fieldforce is the central command post from which universal communication occurs and insights are obtained.
With Fieldforce, municipalities building smart cities can:
Build entire deployment and operations workflows, including field activities and approval chains with an easy-to-use workflow builder.
Easily schedule preventative maintenance, and manage resources more efficiently.
Manage assets from procurement through to end of life, with real-time insights into asset location, condition, and activities taken.
Analyze network health and mitigate risk by surfacing insights that allow you to ensure operational efficiency.
Quickly identify risk areas, trends, and actions required with custom analytics available to all members of the organization.
Find authorized service providers to facilitate network builds.
Manage key components for site builds, such as power, leasing, ordinances, zoning, and permitting.
Adjust and scale network management as infrastructure or processes evolve
Fieldforce makes it easier to deploy Smart City technology. We simplify maintenance, and make it easier to track asset locations. By making managing these complex networks easier, adoption will happen faster and cities will become more efficient as a whole.
