Atlanta is experiencing large increases in urban population, visitors and the number of businesses developing in or relocating to the city.


This creates new challenges in handling street, foot and data traffic, as well as ensuring a safe and sustainable environment for the city’s residents and businesses. At the same time, the expectations of residents, visitors and businesses are undergoing a massive shift toward greater demand for connectivity, immediacy, sustainability and safety.
