Cisco signed an agreement with Kansas City to build a city network and enhance citizen engagement utilizing its Smart+Connected Communities program and Internet of Everything.
The pilot project will focus on setting up a mobile platform for citizen access and infrastructure sensing, citizen engagement facilitated by digital interactive kiosks and mobile applications, smart street lighting and video surveillance.
Kansas City will have access to Cisco Smart+Connected Communities (S+CC) reference architectures and provides a framework for defining and evaluating various related initiatives. In addition, Cisco is ready to assist Kansas City in developing a digital agenda.
Cisco plans to work with Think Big Partners and other innovative companies to manage a Kansas City living lab for entrepreneurial development. This lab will serve as an incubator for these open ecosystem participants and the start-up community to develop new solutions to address some of the city’s greatest challenges.
