Smart Cities with Critical Infrastructure
The secret to happier, healthier, and safer cities is being built right now with the help of IoT (Internet of Things) devices. Cities of the future are on their way, but to ensure their fruition a variety of enriching amenities including effective transit systems, environmental monitoring, safe neighborhoods, and efficient delivery of utilities are necessary. Knowing exactly what to implement comes from sensors and cameras that monitor daily life throughout cities including traffic, pedestrian safety, and pollution. The collected data is then leveraged to determine how to ensure steady and optimal performance.
By 2050 over 60% of the population will live in metropolitan areas. Smart City technology will make it possible to sustain growth while providing data to inform solutions that can help large cities maintain a high-quality of life while also providing cost-effective services.
To transmit this data from across a city, connectivity and power is imperative. Oftentimes, devices are not in places that have access to a power outlet or the network to bring the data back to be analyzed. The right network switch makes this possible.
Transition Networks’ Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) commercial and hardened switches do just that. They allow you to connect and power your smart devices wherever you need them.
Transition Networks’ solutions, including PoE, PoE+ and PoE++ switches are designed with smart cities in mind.
With thousands of IoT devices installed across a city’s critical infrastructure from wastewater facilities to traffic intersections we’ve got easy management of your network. Our PoE switches feature our Device Management System (DMS) software that simplifies installation and management of switches and connected devices by automatically creating an interactive map showing connected devices, and provides the ability to remotely monitor and troubleshoot attached devices. The DMS software ensures lower overall cost, less downtime, and easier management and maintenance. Additionally, our Auto-Power Reset (APR) alerts you of down devices and allows you to reset them within the DMS.
We have more than the technology to power your devices, we have the experience working alongside teams to build smart city infrastructure. Our work with major metropolitan cities has equipped us with special insights to get your smart city network gathering the data to implement changes to create healthier, safer and happier cities.

I’ve used Transition Networks’ products in my customer installations for years. I’ve always found their products, customer service, sales, and tech support to be top-notch. I wouldn’t even consider using another brand.
