NEC New Zealand is ramping up its Smart City push, showcasing its suite of offerings to central and local government leaders in Wellington last week.

NEC is the official technology partner of Land Information New Zealand Smart City coalition, providing the building blocks and technical capability for projects with Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland councils.

Under the initiative, NEC will be implementing Smart City solutions such as traffic counting and city sensing, providing the opportunity for council’s   trial  use of the technology.

NEC’s sensor technology, combined with geographic information, provides opportunities to enhance and improve the quality of life in cities.

A NEC official said it would provide its ICT and solutions together with local innovations and contribute to safer and more secure communities in New Zealand.
