Forty percent of the food produced in the U.S. ends up in landfills.* We know it means wasted food, but it also leads to excessive production of methane gas – a major contributor to the shrinking ozone layer.
Apply technology to the mix, and we can help solve challenges like methane emissions and have a positive impact on the environment.

The power of connectivity is transforming all industries and forward-thinking cities.
This digital transformation is driving the next generation of wireless access—5G—targeting commercial availability around 2020. Just as 4G/LTE technology enabled the explosion of smartphones, mobile applications, and mobile commerce, the evolution to 5G will enable rapidly growing, diverse services for both human and machine communications.

The Internet of Things (IoT) narrative has evolved drastically over the past two years, and today we have even more opportunity to redefine what’s possible with connectivity to make cities, cars, homes and devices smarter and more sustainable. At Qualcomm, we take pride in innovating for the greater good, and are excited about the opportunity to help shape the narrative about the role of IoT in enabling economic development and smart urban infrastructure.
Cisco Live 2016 was an exciting opportunity for a handful of young men and women. As part of the Cisco Networking Academy Dream Team, 10 students worked side-by-side with Cisco engineers in Las Vegas, setting up and maintaining a massive network for more than 28,000 attendees.
The Internet of Things (IoT) – the concept that all devices that can be connected will be connected – is starting to take root in cities in various parts of the globe. IoT is being used to better manage energy, water, transportation and safety – but what exactly does this look like in first-adopter cities?

AT&T has been in the Internet of Things (IoT) business for more than 8 years. We’re already connecting automobiles, homes and “things.” Now, we’re putting it all together in the places where 60-80% of global greenhouse gases will be generated, and where 66% of world’s population will live by 2050: Cities.
Enter the Smart City. A Smart City optimizes how we use valuable resources, like energy and water, to help improve quality of life, positively impact our planet and open new economic opportunities.
The Solar and Smart Home technologies are quickly converging, opening up watershed growth opportunities for companies in these sectors.
The global solar industry, expected to reach $345 billion by 2020, and the global smart home market, expected to reach $59 billion by 2020, are two of the building industry’s hottest growth sectors.
One of the main drivers for this meteoric growth is the unprecedented transition from a high-consumption and low automation market to low-consumption & high automation market. This transition is fundamentally altering the performance of our built environment and the way that we interact with it.
