With growing populations and rapid urbanization, cities and communities around the world are grappling with increasingly difficult challenges.
What can we help you overcome?
City officials don’t succeed by buying technology, but rather by enhancing the livability in their cities, improving the quality of air, reducing fatalities, improving traffic and so on. And this is what we do for them. We don’t deliver technologies, we deliver outcomes.Amr Salem, Quantela CEO

At the start of COVID, the “digital divide” that existed in the city became very apparent with many households lacking the WiFi access necessary to allow their children to participate in remote school activities. The city needed to provide support; however, it lacked the funds.
Quantela worked with the City to initially implement and centrally monitor 10 Public WiFi access points across eight Federal Opportunity zones, with the long-term goal of implementing 160 access points along with revenue-generating digital advertising kiosks to help fund the project.
Given the positive impact these solutions had on citizens and businesses, the City received $40 million in investments and a $500,000 grant post deployment along with sustainable revenue generation to be reinvested in the community to further improve quality of life and learning for school children.
The city's initial goal was to provide downtown retailers with greater insight into the quantity and timing of foot traffic during events so that they could staff and promote accordingly. Its long-term goal is to enable the city management team to view a broad scope of activities (e.g. traffic, parking, crowds, etc.) across the city through a touchscreen.
To date, Quantela has implemented its people counting, parking, and traffic management solutions providing data and predictive analytics through its comprehensive dashboard. In addition, it has installed intelligent streetlight controls to provide the appropriate amount of lighting needed during high traffic times, while conserving energy during off-peak hours.
