Deployment of smart services through the urban infrastructure will address essential administrative needs of the citizens and empower them with easy access to critical information,” said Pravin Agarwal, vice chairman of Sterlite Technologies.
The deployment of smart services at Gandhinagar will offer easy access to information through Wi-Fi Services & Smart Mobile App. It also ensures public security with IP Surveillance, reduces electricity cost with Smart Street Lighting, offers weather and pollution information through Environment Sensors, public announcement and advertisement through Digital Signages.
