Connected Communities

Integrate Smart Solutions for Safe, Sustainable, Citizen-centric Spaces.

The digital economy is growing, and cities want digital tech solutions that connect people, places, and things for greater livability, safety, and sustainability. Across urban and rural spaces and everywhere in between, Black & Veatch brings together communication networks, the IoT application layer, and data analytics to connect community elements and create smart functions.

Black & Veatch ranks #3 in Telecom in ENR's 2020 Top 500 Design Firms

As the line between physical and digital reality disappears, smart hardware and software help cities leverage their existing assets and provide seamless connectivity across critical systems. Planning, operation, and visibility work in unison when systems operate together, which means communities maximize management efficiencies and take advantage of synergies.

Working with city leaders, transportation entities, industry trailblazers and more, Black & Veatch plans, designs, and constructs scalable, integrated solutions across smart city and community broadband markets. With innovative connected solutions, leaders expand connected services, enhance city system efficiency, heighten quality of life, and meet the needs of future generations.

Project Highlight: Smart, Connected Roadways

Like many agencies, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) wanted to innovate. But, their existing microwave network had limited capacity, and couldn’t support the value- added safety and mobility applications that PTC required. PTC launched an advanced fiber optic network project to boost connectivity between their administrative buildings, as well as support All-Electronic Tolling (AET) and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) for improved safety and mobility. With the bandwidth provided by the fiber optic network, PTC will be able to install automated tolling to support future autonomous vehicle traffic on the turnpike.
