Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure Unveils Safe City Framework Integrated solutions and coordinated capabilities make cities safer and more resilient

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Nov. 14, 2017 -- Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure unveiled its Safe City Framework at Smart City Expo World Congress, the leading international event for smart cities. Hexagon's Safe City Framework offers flexibility to support solutions that advance capabilities, while being practical to implement within a city's new or existing information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure.

Hexagon has been independently assessed as the global market leader for computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and geographic information system (GIS) software in control rooms and offers an extensive portfolio of solutions and domain expertise for other vital public services. Hexagon's integrated solutions and coordinated capabilities amplify the benefits and impact of individual software applications to improve public services operations, increase citywide cooperation and expand stakeholder engagement.

"Cities must not only protect people and property, but also economic activity, the environment and the public perception of the city as a safe place to live, work and visit," said Steven Cost, president, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. "Hexagon provides the connectivity, collaboration and intelligence essential to making cities safer and more resilient."

Hexagon's solutions serve thousands of communities around the world, from mega cities like New York City and São Paulo to entire countries, like Germany and New Zealand. Supported by an extensive technology and implementation partner eco-system, and with safe city-ready components that advance city capabilities, Hexagon is uniquely positioned to realize customers' safe city strategies.

Multi-agency resource management solutions that provide the information and capabilities to optimize resources across services and jurisdictions.
Infrastructure management solutions that optimize planning and operations to better understand the condition of assets, minimize disruption to vital services and expedite recovery.
Incident command system solutions that enable collaboration between emergency services and other city services for faster, more efficient and effective major incident planning, response, recovery and mitigation.
