Every day, a lot of people migrate from rural to urban areas, creating a specific set of challenges for both people (to elevate the quality of life) and government (to run operations efficiently). In the current rapid urbanization age, Avnet has been working on a range of Smart City solutions that contribute towards improving the quality of citizens' lifestyles as well as accelerates economic development. Our extensive portfolio of Smart City solutions ranges from smart building and smart parking management to smart energy management, smart lighting, smart traffic management and smart farming. These solutions enable public-and private-sector planners to foster resource efficiency and sustainability, drive citizen engagement and resolve an array of community challenges.
Our rich expertise and a strong partner ecosystem reduce time to deploy smart city solutions, associated costs and risks while empowering city managers to create a connected community with state-of-the-art technologies including IoT, machine learning, artificial intelligence, data analytics and more.
Our smart city solutions are powered by a modern networking infrastructure platform that works with the current system with minimal disruption.
We follow best practices to ensure that all data are properly secured by following the highest standards in compliance with various industry and federal regulations.
Our solutions feature state-of-art technologies such as advanced analytics, deep learning and artificial intelligence that provide real-time visibility and simplify the implementation of higher ROI solutions.
The IoTConnect® platform supports a wide range of application features, connected devices, users and analytics capabilities to meet future needs.
The solution connects safety equipment, environmental sensors, HVAC, lighting, etc. to enable building supervisors to leverage real-time information from building assets and resources, while making buildings more intelligent and efficient. An AI-powered, real-time dashboard guides users and predicts outcomes through pattern recognition and trends analysis.
While many cities around the world are chocked with air pollution, our smart environment solution helps local governments to make their cities healthier, more efficient and more livable. The solution monitors temperature, principal air pollutants, barometric pressure, light, vibration, ambient sound intensity, pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and provides rich insights and predictive analytics, while suggesting the healthiest and unhealthiest walking times and routes through the city.
The solution monitors pH balance, water flow (to facilitate optimized water pumping so limiting loss of water by leakage), turbidity, TSS (Total Suspended Solid), BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) and COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) and keeps an automatic record of the parameters mentioned above. The data gathered from sensors helps to optimize the scheduling of maintenance visits with predictive analytics, cut operational costs and improve the accuracy of the water system.
Avnet's innovative Smart Traffic Management solution involves agile network devices, video surveillance systems, interconnected cars and sensors, IoT cloud platform and the power of AI to make traffic management smart and more efficient. Using real-time analytics of gathered data and understanding some trends, traffic flow can be managed much better.
Avnet's Smart Parking solution helps you digitize parking management and maximize the utilization of parking spaces. The solution aims to help drivers by individually matching them to available parking spots, alleviate traffic congestion and reduce management costs while improving the visibility, overall use and efficiency of a facility. AI can consider factors like seasonality and trends to predict parking spot availability.
Avnet's Smart Energy is a smart, analytics-driven energy monitoring and management solution that enables administrators to monitor energy consumption by detail, visualize the energy consumption in a hierarchical manner (drill-down), showcase patterns and trends, monitor and improve energy efficiency. Various sensors, controllers, smart metering devices, electrical grid assets and smart energy monitors can be plugged into a smart energy system and achieve real-time visibility into energy consumption.
Smart Farming offers smarter ways to raise livestock and cultivate soil with the use of easy-to-install sensors and a huge amount of insightful data they offer. The solution helps farmers to reduce waste and improve productivity while allowing them to monitor the quantity of fertilizer utilized to water usage and the number of journeys the tractor has made. Data collected by sensors is analyzed and used to monitor crop, recognize crop diseases and perform yield prediction.
