What does our evolving digital world mean to you? The dawn of 5G networks foretells lightning-fast communication and vast connectivity that will catapult digitization across industries, enable breakthrough services, and unlock substantial economic opportunities. The next wave of digital electricity—smart grids that monitor and automatically adjust power—promises optimized operations, improved reliability, and cleaner energy. In transportation, we’ll experience a new mobility that connects riders and drivers to a network of sustainable, cost-efficient travel and transport options for people and goods. Our communities are making digital connections, too. On a shared platform, leaders and citizens are building the digital future together.
All of this is happening now, and digital infrastructure and technologies are converging to form a new ecosystem. As a technology integrator, Black & Veatch designs, builds, and connects communication networks and digital infrastructure to evolve energy, transportation, community, and business capabilities. We wield connectivity like a pen to help carriers, electric utilities, fleet owners, city leaders and private enterprises rewrite business models and operations to create new value streams and gain efficiencies.
Black & Veatch is known for turnkey Information and Communications Technology (ICT) solutions, including wireless, wireline and IP networks. We provide information and operational technology (IT and OT) systems used for secure information sharing, monitoring and control, and data analytics.

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.
Your customers expect their power to always be on. But, with Distributed Energy Resources (DER), electric vehicles (EVs) and cyber threats straining an aging distribution system, this modern convenience could falter if left unchanged. Make the most of your investments by leveraging advancements in communication and technology to gain new insights and control in how you engage with customers and deliver power.
Grid modernization represents a major change for electric utilities. A goal of reliable, efficient, sustainable and secure operations means massive upgrades to transmission and distribution operations, distributed generation, and communication and technology infrastructure.
Networking the Internet of Things (IoT)
With IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) revolutionizing operations, networks now need to connect thousands to millions of sensors and machines, versus the hundreds of the past. This modernization requires a fundamental shift in the planning of the data transport infrastructure. Black & Veatch assists clients with this transition to a next-generation network platform.
