Unlocking Value for Cities With New Network-as-a-Service Offering

Cities worldwide face unprecedented budgetary pressures, coupled with the need to deliver enhanced services to their community. Silver Spring is introducing a new Network-as-a-Service offering where it will deploy, manage and operate Smart City networks on behalf of cities, allowing them to avoid upfront capital equipment and deployment costs as well as reduce operational and management expenditures. Silver Spring’s offering reduces the risk of unwieldy and complex projects and allows cities to leverage the same network for the deployment of additional Smart City applications over time, greatly lowering long-term costs and accelerating speed of deployment for these new services.

“Silver Spring’s decade of leadership delivering some of the world’s largest outdoor IPv6 networks perfectly positions us to help cities deploy high-performance, scalable, and secure Smart City networks today,” said Eric Dresselhuys, Executive Vice President of Global Development, Silver Spring Networks. “Our new Network-as-a-Service offering delivers game-changing economics, reduces risk, and allows cities to self-fund their Smart City network. And our proven ability to support multiple smart infrastructure applications on a single network delivers ongoing value and outstanding return on investment.”

Silver Spring’s Smart City solution is comprised of its proven IPv6 wireless networking platform and management and control software optimized for Smart City devices, delivered via a new Network-as-a-Service offering that enables cities to quickly and easily deploy Smart City services to their citizens.
