Event Details

Please join us for our holiday meeting on December 15th, 2011 at 11:00am at City Center, West Palm Beach, FL.  “Wellington’s Wireless City” will be presented by Tom Amburgey, CIO, and Nestor Navarro, GIS Manager from the City of Wellington.

Again this year we will be accepting your unwrapped toys for our “Toys for Tots” drive and your secret recipe for winning our annual Holiday Bake Off.

Abstract: Wellington prides itself in providing cutting edge technology in order to meet business needs. A perfect example of this is Wellington’s wireless city! That’s right, we have a wireless broadband mesh network (Wi-Fi) running throughout, which allows staff to access network resources from anywhere in the city as well as remotely read water meters, communicate with and control lift stations and pump stations, and manage remotely located security cameras.

This network saves the city over $200,000 per year, and provides many opportunities for increased revenue. What better way to provide the most up-to-date information to our residents and staff then to have real time information pouring back to our end users!

GIS has allowed us to effectively map our Wi-Fi network and geocode routes that have been driven to check for signal strength. GIS also uses the network to stream live data updates, connect to wireless cameras and much more! One example of our daily GIS usage is seen by our Code Officers who can GPS their locations, find addresses and query property information instantly while in the field. We also use GIS to find the best locations for new Wi-Fi infrastructure, areas for improvement, etc. Wi-Fi and GIS, a can’t miss opportunity!

This event will be catered, so we ask that you RSVP using this invitation so we may tally a head count, Thanks!
