There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ so­lu­tion for smart cities


Cur­rently, ma­jor­ity of the states in In­dia are blueprint­ing plans around how the smart city roadmap is go­ing to be ready. While some of the states are ready to go to the next stage, oth­ers are still in the process of cre­at­ing the blue­print. Cisco is al­ready in dis­cus­sions with var­i­ous state gov­ern­ments to trans­form around 20 cities into smart, con­nected ones. Some of the Indian cities Cisco is al­ready in an ad­vaned stage of dis­cus­sion are Jaipur, Pune, Nagpur, Navi Mum­bai, NDMC and Luc­know, Mad­hya Pradesh, Pun­jab, Andhra Pradesh. Be­side this we are also work­ing with some pri­vate smart cities, in­dus­trial town­ships, and large IT cam­pus to be de­vel­oped as smart cities.

Delhi Mum­bai In­dus­trial Cor­ri­dor: Cisco has de­vel­oped pi­lot ICT mas­ter plans for four cities in the Delhi Mum­bai In­dus­trial Cor­ri­dor – the $90 bn flag­ship public sec­tor in­fra­struc­ture project by the Gov­ern­ment of In­dia.

The four cities are: JAIPUR SMART CITY In an ef­fort to make Jaipur a smart city, Cisco an­nounced its part­ner­ship with Jaipur De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity wherein Cisco has set up the dig­i­tal in­fra­struc­ture to of­fer cit­i­zens ameni­ties in­clud­ing con­nected transport, in­ter­ac­tive kiosks, wire­less broad­band, safety and se­cu­rity ser­vices, traf­fic man­age­ment and en­vi­ron­men­tal up­dates. To man­age the city with greater ef­fi­ciency and ef­fec­tive­ness, Jaipur will also have a Com­mand and Con­trol Cen­tre as well as a Re­sponse Con­trol Room powered by Cisco tech­nolo­gies SMART SURVEIL­LANCE SYS­TEM IN LUC­KNOW

To make Luc­know a safer city, Cisco along with Mahin­dra De­fence Sys­tems, is work­ing to­wards a project un­der a 40 crore con­tract

About 10,000 drones are ex­pected to be in­stalled across the city over the next one year

The surveil­lance project cur­rently cov­ers 70 cross­ings where po­lice have in­stalled 280 cam­eras

Mo­bile surveil­lance vans equipped with night vi­sion cam­eras have also been de­ployed CITY SURVEIL­LANCE IN NAVI MUM­BAI

Cisco has de­ployed an IP-based city surveil­lance sys­tem in Navi Mum­bai that in­cludes video surveil­lance which pro­vides an­a­lyt­ics and in­tel­li­gent in­ci­dent re­sponse, emer­gency com­mu­ni­ca­tion

The sys­tem also pro­vides alerts to the Po­lice Depart­ment about ab­nor­mal move­ments/ sus­pi­cious ob­jects and al­lows bet­ter man­age­ment of se­cu­rity through 24x7 in­tel­li­gent mon­i­tor­ing

It fa­cil­i­tates faster re­sponse to se­cu­rity breaches and im­proved turn­around time for in­ves­ti­ga­tion

In­clud­ing Navi Mum­bai, the com­pany is car­ry­ing out five more smart surveil­lance projects
