    Smarter Cities – Smarter Planet
    Smarter cities of the future will drive sustainable economic growth. Their leaders have the tools to analyze data for better decisions, anticipate problems to resolve them proactively and coordinate resources to operate effectively.

    As demands grow and budgets tighten, solutions also have to be smarter, and address the city as a whole. By collecting and analyzing the extensive data generated every second of every day, tools such as the IBM Intelligent Operations Center coordinate and share data in a single view creating the big picture for the decision makers and responders who support the smarter city.

    Streetline’s mission is to make smart cities a reality through the use of sensor-enabled mobile and web applications. As the leading global provider of Smart Parking solutions for cities, airports, universities, private garages, and consumers, Streetline’s pioneering technology connects citizens with critical information to improve the way they live and work, while making cities more efficient and lessening their environmental impact.

    Streetline is a privately held company headquartered in Foster City, CA with smart parking deployments in over 40 cities globally. The company was named one of Fast Company’s 10 Most Innovative Companies in Transportation, as well as IBM Global Entrepreneur of the Year. Streetline was also named Best Mobile Innovation for ‘Smart Cities’ for Parker at the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

    As the global leader in mobile communications, Qualcomm’s technologies provide the blueprint to enable the next generation of urban services. These services will require a new level of high speed wireless connectivity that Qualcomm is uniquely positioned to deliver. Based on a foundation of standardization and interoperability, Qualcomm enables a seamless heterogeneous network that provides essential connectivity and flexibility across all city services.
