Editors Note: There is a video associated with this press release.

Think Global, a collaborative alliance of diverse technology and urban-space actors announced today the portfolio release of its IOT-based end-to-end solutions for "smarter" cities.

Making its worldwide premier at this week's Smart City Expo, Barcelona, the integrated multi-vertical urban solutions are managed through a standardized common platform that exploits gathered data from the Internet of Things (IOT). They interoperate with each other in real time on a sensor network of unlimited scale to address four burgeoning urban realities: mobility, environmental monitoring, street lighting and waste collection.

"Capturing data from billions of connected things and devices is already a reality. We believe the real value lies in making it easy to convert such data from multiple public services into meaningful real-time information that cities can act on. As a result, cities will benefit from new revenues, energy saving, improved environmental footprint and reduced IT infrastructure costs," said Jean-Louis Fiorucci, founder and executive board member of Think Global, and chairman of SUDE, who is slated to speak at the Expo.

"Think Global combines proven know-how across a broad spectrum of engineering-technology expertise, and public-private partnership experience in local urban space management to deliver customized value. Our solutions are tailored to specific city context, adapting to complex interoperating systems and users' evolving needs," said Jean-Daniel Le Gall, an executive board member of Think Global, and strategy and marketing manager of the Citelum Group.

Visit Think Global co-founders: Citelum, Sude, TG Consulting and Urbiotica, along with partners: Egis, Ensto, Meteosim, Mentis, Moba and Webelse at booth E516 of the Expo.
