This session will explore Public Wi-Fi, the foundation of a smart city. More than just the provision of high speed internet, an intelligent Wi-Fi network can provide a platform for communication, branding, placemaking, and public engagement. An intelligent Wi-Fi network can also collect valuable analytics on who comes downtown, how they travel, how long they stay, and how often they return. Cities and economic development practitioners can use this data to study the impact of events, provide information for business attraction and retention, and drive decision making, just for starters. The session will discuss data collection, data privacy, and highlight several case studies including Covington, KY and Fairborn, OH.
