Bristol’s Smart City Operations Centre is an award winner
DateMarch 5, 2018
The MWC is the largest technology show in Europe, regularly attracting over 100,000 visitors, and it annually hosts the GLOMO (Global Mobile) Awards, which recognise and celebrate all contributions made to the evolving and developing mobile industry.
The vision behind the Smart City Operations Centre was to create an integrated city-wide management, service delivery and collaborative centre for Bristol, focused on the needs of citizens. It is now a core asset for the city that provides strong support to council and city partner operations.
The judges described the programme as ‘ambitious… (it) has resulted so far in a strong IoT network test bed and a city operations centre that is beginning to make a real impact on broader city policy.’
Last October, Bristol overtook London as the UK’s leading “smart city” according to the second UK Smart Cities Index, commissioned by Huawei UK and conducted by Navigant Consulting.
