NEC provides an operational control software module as part of NEC’s Cloud City Operations Center to enable the city of Santander in Spain to improve the services it delivers to local residents by automating management of its public infrastructure while reducing costs. NEC is developing a smart waste collection solution for the city of Santander in Spain in partnership with waste management service provider ASCAN.
This helps Smart Santander track how water, waste, lighting, power, roads and other resources are used in response to real-time environmental conditions. It also helps the city minimise wastage, increase the timeliness of communications with local residents and free up staff so they can focus on longer-term strategic planning.
