Smart communities

Your community, their future

Smart community networks offer the promise of greener, prosperous, more inclusive communities for all citizens. 

Many communities, amid their smart city transformation, are realizing that to capture the full benefits of their initiatives, robust broadband connectivity provides the foundation they need.

The foundation built on reliable and pervasive broadband allows communities to take advantage of digital services that utilize leading technologies like IoT, automation, machine learning, the metaverse and more.  

With Nokia network technologies, communities can benefit from a high-performance network foundation and robust government-grade platform to fuel the continued economic and social growth of their community.

Our solutions help you create greener, more innovative and thriving communities that extend the benefits of broadband to all citizens, visitors and enterprises who call your city “home”.
