Rolta Awarded USTDA Contract for Nanjing, China "Smart City" with Partner, ARES Security

ALPHARETTA, Ga., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rolta today announced that it has been awarded the prestigious "Smart City" project for Nanjing, China, in preparation for hosting the 2014 Youth Olympics.  Rolta has engaged ARES Security Corporation of Burlingame, CA to leverage their systems engineering expertise to assist in developing an integrated geospatial transportation solution for the city. 

The solution will collect Nanjing's transportation data from hundreds of sensors and provide dashboards to assist in traffic management and monitoring environmental parameters in real-time to better handle the dramatic increase in demands on the city's infrastructure.  With this solution, which incorporates Rolta iPerspective™, a platform for integration of disparate sources of data, Rolta OneView™ for business intelligence, and Rolta Geospatial Fusion™ to integrate spatial attributes, municipal managers will have a robust decision-support capability to better address near and long term traffic planning needs.  The project was funded through a United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) grant that targets the creation of sustainable infrastructure and economic growth through the export of U.S. goods and services.  Rolta's solution will be used to support the intelligent transportation requirements for the 2014 Youth Olympics.

The Smart City project is the first collaboration under a newly formed ARES Security-Rolta strategic alliance.  This alliance takes advantage of the partners' diverse but complementary strengths to develop and offer security management solutions.  Both partners have a rich repository of software built around their respective intellectual property and deep expertise in the security domain that enables them to deliver world-class solutions.  

"The USTDA project in Nanjing is but one example of how the complementary solutions of the two companies will provide an excellent framework for addressing the large global market of enterprise risk management," said Mr. Ben Eazzetta, President of ARES Security.  "The credentials of the Rolta Team are a great fit for developing and deploying the sophisticated solution required for the ambitious program of Nanjing."

Ms. Preetha Pulusani, President of Rolta International (Americas), said, "We are pleased to have been selected to lead this effort.  We view the Nanjing project as strategically important not only because it addresses the needs of Nanjing to host an important international event, but also because the sophisticated solution has wide applicability and, therefore should pave the way for greater US-China trade.  We will continue to jointly pursue new opportunities that leverage ARES Security and Rolta software, and our expertise to offer differentiated solutions to customers globally."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
