Nokia and Current by GE to Set up Smart City Technology throughout Canada

Nokia has announced its commercial partnership with Current by GE for applying smart city technology to Canadian cities to improve infrastructures and citizen services.

The collaboration between the two companies will enable Nokia to access Current by GE’s CityIQ platform, which is a data platform technology built on IoT connectivity. The system will repurpose outdoor street lighting into digital infrastructure that collects data and distributes valuable insights to cities via Nokia’s communications networks. With the information collected by the platform, cities will gain more understanding to solve common public challenges such as parking and traffic management. The sensing function also helps to provide weather information and to monitor air quality.

Shawn Sparling, Head of Canada Enterprise Sales, Nokia, said, “Responsive, flexible technology is the key to creating smarter cities while enabling a safer and more sustainable environment. The agreement with Current by GE is a key milestone in our efforts to build a rich and diverse ecosystem of leading suppliers to ensure the delivery of best-in-class solutions for our customers.”

The technology of Current by GE has been deployed in San Diego, Atlanta, Portland and other U.S. cities. According to Current by GE, Nokia’s extensive portfolio of IoT connectivity solution will bring new forms of smart city transformation.
