Cimcon, one of the provider of smart city technologies, has announced enhancements to its NearSky Connect Partner Program. The program draws together best-in-class sensor/device manufacturers, application developers, professional service companies, financing firms, and technology integrators. The goal of the program is to simplify the evaluation, financing, purchase, deployment, and maintenance of smart city solutions. At the heart of each solution is the company's NearSky smart city platform, which turns a city's streetlight infrastructure into a connected network of sensory points, allowing cities to improve city services with data from sensors, cameras, and other devices.

Cimcon - and its customers - recognize the need for cooperation and collaboration in developing and delivering simple-to-deploy smart city solutions. Member companies work together with Cimcon and other program members to create ready-to-use solutions that turn street-level information into usable data that helps cities build safer, healthier, and more vibrant environments for residents, visitors, and businesses.

"Our goal is to simplify the complexity of smart city planning, financing, implementation, and management and we are doing that by creating a highly-collaborative smart city ecosystem," said Anil Agrawal, CEO of Cimcon. "The initial response to our NearSky Connect Partner Program has been very strong ... By combining our partners' best-of-breed technologies with the capabilities of the NearSky platform, we are delivering the outcomes cities need in a cost effective manner and allowing them to realize their smart city visions."

Şadiye Güler Ph. D., Founder/CTO, intuVision, Inc said, "Joining forces with the CIMCON team was the fastest way for us to tap into the smart city market and they have been a great development and sales partner."

The NearSky Connect Partner Program has been enhanced to address the varying needs of specific partner types:

  • Sensor/Device Manufacturers - Cimcon provides these partners with a robust platform that delivers the power, processing, and connectivity to simplify deployments.
  • Application Developers - Cimcon provides this group with tools (i.e., an SDK, APIs and application development support) and large quantities of city data that can be used to develop and test applications and integrations.
  • Professional Services, Integrators, and Resellers - Cimcon provides these important business partners with vetted smart city solutions that lead to successful sales engagements and a deep knowledge base of the hardware and software needed to deliver customized smart city solutions.

"Our partners have added significant value to the NearSky platform by making a diverse set of sensing and analytic capabilities available to cities," said Clarence Friedman, VP of Strategy. "Through the program, our partners are benefiting financially and through the actionable smart city blueprints our community is developing.  We expect these benefits to expand as we enter 2020, leading up to our first user conference in the Fall of 2020."
