Smart Cities: Technology Deep Dive
Part of a 3-episode panel on smart cities, this session includes Strategy of Things co-founders Renil Paramel and Benson Chan, and Chief Information Officer at the City of Aurora, Illinois, Michael Pegues. This episode is co-hosted by our strategic advisor, Jonathan Reichental, Ph.D., and Sean Martin, co-founder of ITSP Magazine.
In this hour long discussion, we dive deep into the most interesting urban technologies and their implementations, exploring what is and isn't working. The discussion includes other technological aspects that must be considered such as cost, ethics, regulation, and standards.
Smart City CIO vs. Public Works: Merging Physical and Digital Infrastructure
Maintaining physical infrastructure is a key function of government and represents huge opportunities for modernization and digitalization. As countries around the globe transition to the “new normal,” governments are investing heavily in infrastructure modernization to jump start the economy.
This session examines opportunities to improve quality of life and responsive government with new, hybrid infrastructures.
Co-founder Renil Paramel moderates a panel at the CTA Conference Session at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Listen to insights from the Honorable Lily Mei 高敘加, Mayor of the City of Fremont in Silicon Valley, Jonathan Reichental, Ph.D., a well known and respected smart city and innovation expert, and Curtis Govan, President, Americas at floLIVE, a provider of innovative connectivity solutions for telecommunications and IoT.
Smart Cities: New Transportation Models
Good transportation and mobility are critical elements of a well functioning city. In recent years, app-based ridesharing services, scooters, e-bikes, food delivery and autonomous delivery robots augmented and competed against traditional services. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, public transit is operating at levels well beyond capacity, and must innovate new services and capabilities to remain relevant and sustainable in a “new normal” remote work. Autonomous trucks are currently testing on highways and city streets, and will be operating at scale in a few years. Simultaneously, residents in underserved communities, with limited or no access to connectivity and digital services, are not able to access advanced services like these.
This session explores what opportunities, issues, and preparations cities need to consider to support new transportation models and services moving forward.

Innovative Solutions and How to Replicate Them
The Emerging Technology community from CompTIA hosted a virtual session which showcased real-world examples of how businesses are successfully infusing innovative solutions into their businesses and how these solutions can be replicated. Watch this video and pick up some tips and tricks.
We shared some thoughts and practical advice on our solutions with smart buildings as well as things to keep in mind when working with IoT. We were joined by our distinguished colleagues Jonathan Weiss, Industrial Solutions Leader at Amazon Web Services, Robert Forget, CTO at Aware360, and Ray Orsini, CEO at OIT, LLC | OITVOIP. Thanks to Khali Henderson from BuzzTheory and Adam Proulx from CompTIA for organizing and facilitating the session.

How to Implement IoT Technologies to Manage Smart Buildings
Benson Chan joins Khali Henderson of BuzzTheory for an episode of Promise to Profit to discuss smart buildings, strategies for implementing IoT solutions, and why MSPs should be adding IoT functionality to their portfolios.
The scope of traditional IP-based networks is expanding to include HVAC, lighting, surveillance and many other systems within buildings and other structures. This transformation is opening a lot of doors for MSPs and other tech companies to do more with their customers.
In this video, you’ll hear:
• The benefits and advantages of developing smart buildings.
• Why smart buildings represent a growing opportunity for MSPs and solution providers.
• Advice on how to get started on implementing IoT functionality into your current solutions portfolio.
Smart Cities and Sensors — How to Maximize the Opportunity and What NOT to do
Sensors are an integral part of future smart cities. However, while industry analysts have predicted huge revenue opportunities for smart cities and sensor manufacturers, the actual scaling and building of smart cities and their projects has been slow. There are many aspects of smart city projects that make them difficult to accomplish.
Questions that get asked are: Who is the customer? Which organizations in the city have the money? How do I make money from my smart city project? Which sensors are needed? What are the best smart city projects right now? What will happen with smart cities in the future?
This webinar provides a unique perspective on smart cities and explains what NOT to do when creating and executing a smart city project. There is also guidance for sensor technology providers on what TO DO by identifying the best smart city project opportunities and challenges.
