Bristol is building a platform for the development of smart city applications that will promote innovation and deliver a better quality of life. The City of Bristol is partnering with Bristol University to promote Bristol Is Open (BIO)—an effort to deploy and trial a citywide smart city network. BIO is encouraging local entrepreneurs to connect new sensors and devices to a common network, and to develop innovative smart city solutions for commercialization globally. Bristol is leveraging the Silver Spring multi-application network to catalyze innovation, break down city silos and empower local businesses.
