Integrated Operations Center for smart cities
Orchestrating the 'smarts' in smart cities for efficiency,speed and new monetization opportunities
The Internet of Things plays a key role in the evolution of the Smart City - a digital landscape of connected sensors and devices creates millions of control endpoints generating real-time data during operations and facilitating automated actions. However, as the city scales exponentially, management of smart city assets and orchestrating actions across them presents a key challenge
Nokia's Integrated Operations Center (IOC) lies at the heart of Smart City operations offering a unified real-time view into all Smart city assets and services, bringing efficiency and revenue opportunities with analytics integration, while facilitating rapid response based on automated workflows across multiple applications.
The IOC can also be integrated within Nokia's Advanced Command Center solution for Public Safety in cases of convergence of public safety and smart cities domains. This helps public safety agencies take advantage of smart city infrastructure for improved decision making in emergency situations.
The IOC also eliminates cumbersome multivendor point to point integrations. Using the inbuilt Nokia Integration platform's adaptor library drastically reduces the time to launch new smart city services while making optimal use of legacy city assets. The IOC is highly customizable and Nokia technical consulting experts adapt the solution to individual smart city needs by tailoring infrastructure, automated workflows and user-specific custom dashboards. It can also be flexibly deployed on either on-premises data centers or in the Cloud.
The Integrated Operations Center comprises four parts :
