Comcast is expanding its portfolio of smart city technologies with several new collaborations, along with successful deployments across college campuses, office buildings and municipalities. 

“There is incredible potential for smart technology to unlock new efficiencies for businesses and municipalities, and we look forward to continuing to simplify the smart technology journey for our customers,” said Mike Slovin, Comcast’s VP. “With our growing roster of technology solutions and the power of Comcast’s breadth of connectivity options, we can help create customized solutions that empower our clients to operate their communities and businesses at their best.”

Since its launch last April, Comcast has partnered with smart city and infrastructure companies including Conservation Labs, Logical Buildings and SmartEnds. In its latest announcement, the company unveiled its collaboration with AI-based smart city group Quantela, digital signage provider Creative Realities and parking solutions company Umojo.

With the new partnerships, Comcast is expanding its portfolio of smart city technology offerings to serve a wider range of customers.

Comcast has also successfully deployed its technology for a smart energy management solution, set up in collaboration with non-profit Hopeworks. Leveraging Comcast access points, smart thermostats and leak detection sensors, the new solution is designed to provide real-time energy management.   

Finally, Comcast also announced a new project with the City of College Park in Georgia, with smart deployments including smart waste bin sensors.

In collaboration with Eagle Eye Networks, College Park also deployed a video analytics solution to monitor vehicle traffic patterns, speed and congestion, as well as pedestrian safety. The results will be sent to the city council and police department weekly to reduce speeding and optimize the use of sanitation trucks.
