The answer is not an out-of-the-box, one-size-fits-all network from a vendor primarily interested in selling devices. The answer is a carefully designed strategy for complete municipal communications. It begins with a network foundation that will last for decades into the future. And it evolves as you define the outcomes that produce livability.
Why Smart Cities Need Trilliant
At Trilliant, we know that the Smart City is evolutionary. We start with the problems you most need to solve. We look ahead at the problems you’ll be facing in the future. Then we propose the solutions that deliver the most today while also accommodating future needs.
We begin with the foundation of your solution—a strong communications network. And Trilliant uses the approach that’s best for you. You can start with:
- A partnership with a local utility. In many cases, cities can use a network that’s already in place for utility meter reading.
- An existing network. You may already have in place a system that covers only part of your territory or that’s in use for only limited applications.
- A new Trilliant network solution. Our combination of cutting-edge technologies—wide-area, neighborhood, cellular, and more—gives you the strength and scope you need to solve today’s problems and to prepare for a future with many new options and many more data-producing devices.
You can also combine these networks and add onto them later. Additionally, you can layer multiple solutions onto the same network, ultimately reducing operational costs.
