Telefonica Vivo Partners ISPM to Build Brazil's First Smart City

Rio de Janiero, Brazil

Telefonica Vivo, the largest telecommunications service provider in Brazil, and ISPM, a leading vendor of flexible service assurance, orchestration and management software for telecommunications and IT infrastructure, have announced the launch of a project to turn Águas de São Pedro, a city in the São Paulo region, into the first smart city in the country.

The project encompasses the provisioning of city-wide high-speed broadband connectivity to deliver digital services and a range of applications that will enable various smart city applications and functionalities. These applications will enable remote and real-time management of the city - covering its utilities, traffic and transport systems. One of the applications that will be powered by the connectivity is the street lighting whereby automatic lighting of lamps and the intelligent control of their intensity will enable the 'smart city' to reduce the consumption of electricity. Another example of the application of a smart city technology is the introduction of smart parking solutions, which provide real-time information on the availability of parking spaces, offering greater convenience to citizens, businesses and tourists, as well as enhanced fuel economy for all motorists.

Washington Tavares, ISPM's Product Manager
Our intention is to turn Águas de São Pedro into one of the best cities in Brazil in terms of quality of life, transforming it into an example of the successful application of smart technologies, backed by intelligent management. This initiative is expected to be a flagship that will influence the creation of more smart cities throughout Brazil. We also expect the project to provide models for International municipalities and agencies to emulate. Our experience will help build best practice models for the future.
