Network infrastructure for responsive and efficient communities
Today’s smart city is an enabling platform that delivers advanced services for businesses and residents, helping to bridge the digital divide and provide a better quality of life for all. Network infrastructure is critical to realizing this potential. Defined by its high-speed, low-latency data transmission, and ubiquitous connectivity, a well-planned infrastructure transforms cities into vibrant socio-economic communities. Network operators and smart city integrators rely on CommScope for critical communications infrastructure.
Challenges and opportunities
A smart city is a connected city—small cells, public Wi-Fi, fiber to the home. Creating the connections requires all available tools: wired and wireless networks, licensed and unlicensed spectrum, and software to manage them.
Smart buildings are the building blocks of smart cities. Meanwhile, smart campuses—smart cities on a smaller scale—provide the blueprint for the interconnectivity required.
The smart city is powered wherever sensors, access nodes and small cells are deployed. Connecting and powering them without negatively impacting public spaces—that’s the challenge.
Smart city projects aren’t just technically complex; there are multiple stakeholders—each with their own needs and agendas. Having a partner that can deliver a broad range of products and services reduces complexity and risk.

Reliable Networks for Smart Buildings
Smart buildings are the foundational components of the smart city. They also provide the blueprint for the infrastructure and embedded intelligence needed to create a more connected and efficient city. So, what makes a building smart?
City of San Jose
San Jose, California, sits in the heart of Silicon Valley. For residents and businesses, technological expectations are high. When it was time to upgrade its municipal Wi-Fi network, the city’s CIO went looking for the smartest, fastest, and highest capacity solution available. His search led him straight to us.
