The Smart City is today more than just a concept. A connected, agile and innovative city, it makes extensive use of IT and digital technology to embrace the challenge of improving the quality of life of citizens in towns and cities, and of boosting the economic attractiveness and tourism potential for local authorities and companies.

Real-time information
Citizens are expressing growing demand for real-time information and are seeking connectivity at all times, wherever they may be.
They are increasingly involved in community life and are becoming community-spirited stakeholders in their towns and cities.
Community applications ensure greater proximity between citizens and their local authorities.

"Welcome to my city"
The Orange web and mobile-based urban services platform was created to make life easier for citizens and tourists and is designed to support them in their day-to-day lives. It gathers all relevant and useful information about the town (the geolocation of attractions and areas of interest, opening times of public services, bargains and money-saving information, traffic reports, canteen menus, environmental data, etc.) before enriching this information and relaying it in a simple and personalized manner.

Improving the region's attractiveness and efficiency

 

New urban planning projects
Including the building or renovation of residential areas, business districts, shopping or hotel areas, towns are constantly increasing the number of urban planning projects meeting the principles of sustainable development, creating a greener and more responsible environment, and meeting citizens’ needs. Whether you manage a building or are a resident in one, technology helps improve the use of buildings. Security, safety, a comfortable working environment and the availability of innovative services are all made possible by the increasing use of technology in these facilities. At the same time, infrastructure management tools make it easier to implement strategies for buildings and other real estate assets.

Encouraging urban mobility

 

70%
of the global population will be living in towns and cities by 2050: an incredible opportunity to encourage new urban mobility.

Travel flows
You can optimize your infrastructure assets with better knowledge of travel flows in your area. Having reliable indicators available, which make it possible to improve and to boost the fluidity of population flows, is now possible with Flux Vision. This "big data" solution makes it possible to instantly process millions of pieces of technical information from mobile networks into statistical indicators to analyze visitor numbers in specific geographical areas and track population movements.

Find a parking space quickly
You can simplify journeys, by reducing the time spent looking for parking spaces. Being able to find a parking space quickly enables citizens to save time and also keep traffic levels down. With the Stationnement Malin (Smart Parking) solution, roadside parking spaces are equipped with wireless sensors, making it possible to identify unoccupied spaces and relaying this information instantly to drivers using a mobile application.

Real-time security
You can benefit from real-time security solutions for your transport.

 

Embracing the challenge of data

 

IoT & Data Analytics in the heart of the city
The growth of networks, Big Data and the explosion in the Internet of Things are all factors that are central to the smart city of tomorrow.
They allow for improved urban management and a more detailed analysis of the expectations of both citizens and tourists, not only by obtaining and analyzing real-time information but also through statistical and predictive analyses.

Adapted services
They make it possible to develop services adapted to urban requirements and to users’ needs and expectations. The data is derived from the town’s infrastructure and facilities (public lighting, traffic lights at intersections, car parks, waste management, etc.), which become massively connected thanks to the Internet of Things (networks and platforms), but also through the town’s information systems (networks and platforms), in addition to those of its partners and the community applications they operate.

+23%
growth per annum for the global smart city market in the IoT field between 2015 and 2020.
