Future urban infrastructure will be intelligent, connected, and aware.
The coming decade is a period of opportunity, a time when Arizona Civic Leaders will successfully harness technologies and use their existing assets to become smarter, greener, connected, and more successful.

It is for this reason that we developed SmartGig Arizona. This is the only business technology event in Arizona for Arizona civic leaders series to provide practical and useful information in a local, convenient, peer-group environment.

If your civic leadership team requires in-depth information about infrastructure, investment, policy and processes — all of which are required for a smarter more connected community — then we encourage you to make plans to attend SmartGig Arizona.

GIGABIT BROADBAND:
FIBER-TO-THE-PREMISE, POLE AND MORE

Underpinning a smarter region are complex telecommunication networks that allow diverse systems to talk and share actionable information. Infrastructure – wired, wireless, and the platforms that manage it – is the foundation of SmartGig City events. You’ll gain new information on critical technology, as well as the policies, processes and strategy to build the smart city from the ground up.

CONNECTED VERTICAL REAL ESTATE
SMART LIGHTING, KIOSKS & SMALL CELLS

Connected components such as street lights, interactive kiosks, traffic sensors and other smart furniture can be leveraged to serve multiple purposes. SmartGig Arizona includes information on connected vertical infrastructure, specifically small cells, millimeter wave and other 5G systems, that serve all stakeholders in the city while delivering new revenue opportunities for municipal government.

NEXT GEN TRANSPORTATION:
SMART STREETS & SYSTEMS FOR AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES

In a completely connected automotive world, vehicles, traffic lights and the traffic infrastructure in general are communicating among each other, enabling a much better traffic flow and safer rides, visionaries predict. Roadside infrastructure and Vehicle-to-Everything systems hold the potential to be one of the most disrupted sectors in the smart city. SmartGig Los Angeles includes educational sessions focused on transportation-related technologies and policies.

DATA :
ACTIONABLE, AVAILABLE AND AN ECONOMIC DRIVER

City planning that looks at infrastructure as isolated systems and relies on proprietary technologies risks slowing the adoption of technological advancement. By considering smart cities in an “open source” context, leaders can leverage advanced technology and allow innovation to take place, all the while maintaining a transparent approach that places public understanding and benefit at the center.

Cities, Municipalities and Metro Areas need to maintain a competitive advantage in a new connected world of digital applications, knowledge workers and innovation from the Network..... it is a survival of the fittest in the global competition for the future knowledge worker and a share of the expected $9 trillion in annual GDP that will come from the Internet of Things.

Former FCC Chairman Thomas Wheeler

As long as we continue to close the connectivity gap in a responsible way, 2017 will be remembered as the year when the street finally begins to meet the cloud.

Dan Doctoroff, CEO, Sidewalk Labs

The age of the smart city is upon us. It’s just that we don’t really know what that means. For every smart city pilot project that has been undertaken it has ended with a glossy presentation and a collective shrug. Nobody has really known what to do next or how the technology and data might lead to new or improved services.
