Convergint and Axis are reshaping the smart city landscape through a new partnership offering cutting-edge technology and expertise. This partnership aims to empower cities to adapt, collaborate, and thrive, promising a future where the quality of urban life takes precedence.

The Convergint SLED team and Axis Communications are actively reshaping the definition of smart cities to meet the dynamic needs of contemporary urban living, catalysed by the transformative shift driven by global changes, particularly the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. Leading the charge in redefining smart cities to be adaptive and resilient, Convergint and Axis are collaboratively positioning themselves as architects of a future where cities thrive by staying ahead of emerging challenges.

City-wide challenges

City living faces a multitude of challenges, prompting a reassessment of traditional smart city ideals. The past year’s events have underscored the urgency for city authorities to act swiftly and adaptively. The conventional definition of a smart city, rooted in data-driven optimization, may fall short of comprehensively addressing the depth and scope of challenges that lie ahead. Convergint and Axis, however, bring innovative solutions to the forefront, redefining smart cities with cutting-edge technology.

System solutions and benefits of the combined offering

To address these challenges, Convergint and Axis have identified three core focus areas for cities to navigate uncertainties:

  • Public safety: Extending beyond crime to encompass health concerns, this demands advanced technologies for crowd management and emergency response.
  • Urban mobility: This area requires innovative solutions for efficient transportation, enhanced safety, and reduced environmental impact.
  • Environmental monitoring: As cities expand, putting strain on ecosystems, Convergint and Axis offer a comprehensive suite of smart technologies as the first line of defense to minimize and monitor environmental impacts.

Redefining smart cities, Convergint and Axis pave the way for adaptive, resilient, and prosperous urban futures. Their transformative approach seamlessly integrates technology with the well-being of city inhabitants, marking a significant step towards a smarter, more resilient, and prosperous urban environment.
