What to Expect from Hexagon at Smart City Expo World Congress

The Smart City Expo World Congress  will be held November 15-17 at the Gran Via Venue in Barcelona, Spain. For this year’s expo, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure and Hexagon Geospatial will team up to present geospatial and infrastructure enterprise solutions designed to make today’s growing cities even smarter.

Our booth (F630) will feature Hexagon’s latest innovative solutions in three  areas: smart cities, safe cities and smart utilities. Here’s a look at some of the topics we will present in our booth and during parallel sessions on the afternoon of November 15:

Smart Cities

Around the world, cities and metropolitan areas are growing faster year over year. Facing higher energy demands, environmental degradation, rising crime rates and strained infrastructure, the cities of today and tomorrow need smart solutions to successfully manage the great urban migration. In this set of workshops, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure experts will discuss how public safety, utilities and transportation organizations can leverage computer-aided dispatch systems and planning and response applications for smart city monitoring and control.

Hexagon Geospatial experts will demonstrate how the Hexagon Smart M.App helps shape smarter sities.  Smart M.Apps are focused, streamlined applications that transform and communicate information in a way that makes sense. They visualize roads, sewers and even charging points for electric cars in a real-time dashboard, providing insight to citizens, workers and elected officials.

Also in this group of workshops, the Urban Ecology Agency of Barcelona will highlight its SIMUE product – a solution built on top of Hexagon’s GeoMedia platform that creates, analyzes, manages and evaluates cities and urban areas based on geospatial information. The Hamburg Port Authority will also discuss its smartPORT efforts.

Safe Cities

A smart city is a safe city. In this group of workshops, Hexagon will discuss technology trends in the public safety and security industry. Hexagon experts will highlight the latest version of Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD 9.4) and Intergraph Security, as well as share key insights and successes from its customers. Hexagon’s partner Huawei will also present a joint safe cities solution. Live demos of I/CAD integrated with Huawei eLTE will be held in the Huawei booth.

Smart Utilities

The information demands from today’s utilities and communications consumers are fundamentally changing how network operators do business. The great urban migration is also changing how utility and communication providers keep their networks operationally ready. In this group of workshops, Hexagon will discuss technology trends in the utilities and communications industry. Hexagon experts will highlight Intergraph NetWorks – Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure’s new flexible software suite that provides secure, real-time access to location-based engineering and operational data and capabilities across the utilities enterprise. Hexagon will also highlight Intergraph G/Technology and Intergraph G/Technology Fiber Optic Works and share key insights from projects and customers. In addition, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure will have a booth (3H132) at European Utility Week, held in a pavilion next to Smart City Expo, where experts will present these solutions.
