Before a city can be “smart”, it has to be connected ...and that connection can't consume lots of energy to deliver data from thousands, if not millions of devices. Smart Cities Council Partner Senet operates the largest and most densely deployed public carrier-grade LoRaWAN network in the United States, utilized in over 29 states, covering over 1,300 cities, serving a population of over 55 million people, and processing millions of transactions daily.
The Smart Cities Council is offered, as part of Infrastructure Week, a joint session with Readiness Challenge Winners Nashville, TN and Orange County, FL, on how communities can use community-scale data to bolster their economic, social, and environmental resilience. Cutting edge solutions that help communities use data to meet these needs will also be presented by Neighbourlytics, State of Place, and Xylem.
Orange County Florida is a 2021 Winner of the Smart Cities Council Readiness Challenge. The winning project has three goals: First, reduce the contribution to carbon emissions caused by its building assets. Secondly, make these building assets safer and healthier for occupants. Third, use the Smart Cities Council's Readiness Program to increase the solutions considered during the 'scoping' phase of the pre-procurement process. The initial focus will be on the Orange County Convention Center ('OCCC') (the 2nd largest in the US) by inviting innovative solutions.
In this Readiness Program online session, held on Thursday April 29, Orange County, Florida Chief Sustainability and Resilience Officer, Jeff Benavides discusses the current requirements for the country's second largest convention center.

Our Partners at GovWin discuss how the Biden Administration is likely to provide a very different environment for businesses providing all types of “smart” services, and this holds particularly true not just in the federal contracting world, but also for contractors seeking to do business with cities and other state and local governments.
