The companies will field a smart city platform that will integrate NTT’s Cognitive Foundation architecture with Dell EMC’s internet-of-things gateways and hyperconverged infrastructure and VMware’s vCloud network functions virtualization function, NTT Data said Tuesday.
NTT’s platform works to develop and field micro data centers that use analytics to deliver data to locations in real-time.
The proposed smart city proof of concept in Las Vegas aims to speed up response to public safety incidents through the use of data analytics and scalable infrastructure to support sensor data and video-based situational awareness operations.
“We are delighted to partner with the city of Las Vegas and Dell Technologies to help ensure citizens are safe and critical resources are deployed when needed,” said Jun Sawada, chief financial officer of NTT Group and CEO of NTT Security.
NTT Group plans to launch smart city initiatives in other locations once the proof of concept in Las Vegas is completed.
