Montgomery County Joins AT&T Smart Cities Initiative

Feb 22, 2016, 00:01 ET from AT&T

ROCKVILLE, Md., Feb. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* is pleased to announce that Montgomery County is collaborating with AT&T and Deloitte on developing a smart cities framework to explore the various possibilities of smart transit.

This is part of a larger effort by AT&T to build a framework to help municipalities better serve their citizens as well as enhance vital services like public safety. We are bringing this framework to several initial spotlight communities and universities including Montgomery County.

Our framework is a holistic approach to help cities better meet the needs of their citizens using Internet of Things (IoT). The framework, which will initially roll out in select spotlight communities, is supported by an alliance of key technology leaders and industry organizations. Together, we'll develop and deploy solutions that help communities address issues that are critical to them.

"As we plan for the future of transit in Montgomery County, we're actively working with partners to build a cutting-edge system that will serve our residents for decades. This collaboration with AT&T and Deloitte will provide the resources to explore futuristic possibilities which would have been difficult to accomplish alone and builds on our existing internet of things programs," said Isiah Leggett, County Executive of Montgomery County, Maryland.

"More and more cities are realizing the impact IoT solutions can have on improving the lives of their citizens," said Mike Zeto, general manager and executive director, AT&T Smart Cities. "We welcome Montgomery County as a spotlight city. We're looking forward to working with them to create new opportunities in their community."
