San Francisco vies for top US smart city spot

| November 2, 2015

Verizon and French IoT firm Sigfox are working with the City of San Francisco to develop IoT and smart city applications, according to a telecoms.com report.

Verizon is now building a dedicated LTE network and big data analytics engine for IoT and is working with city departments on lighting, video and traffic management apps. Verizon is also testing out a sensor network-based system that controls water sprinklers for a winery nearby.

Meanwhile, Sigfox has entered into a partnership with San Francisco to create “cheap, energy-efficient and two way connectivity for smart city programmes,” the report said.
