As connected technology evolves, our cities and towns are becoming smarter

Citizens are expecting more from the places they live in, and the relationship with government and local authorities to deliver efficient, quality digital services. As well as needing fast, reliable and scalable technology infrastructure to ensure public sector teams can serve citizens effectively, these authorities also need to adopt solutions to support and respond to sustainable and inclusivity.
