FoxNet Paving the Way for Smart Cities

June 28, 2018


WATERLOO, ONTARIO | June 28, 2018 – FoxNet is paving the way for future data-driven smart cities. Recently joined by municipal leaders and data experts in a panel discussion about smart parking solutions, the IT provider encourages smaller companies to partner with governments and scale up their smart city solutions.

The panelists discussed the City of Stratford’s Smart Parking Pilot project on June 27 at the Communitech Data Hub in the heart of Uptown Waterloo’s Data District. The partnership with Stratford includes Waterloo Region-based tech companies FoxNet, Canada’s Open Data Exchange (ODX), and eleven-x. Lending smart parking ideas to the collaborative project, FoxNet’s President, Bill Fox, says that the industry is ready to supply smart solutions to municipal partners.

“There is a real appetite for innovation,” says Fox. “The data hub community sends a strong signal that the industry is getting ready to deploy smart technologies on a wider scale.”

Engaging with this dynamic community of innovators, FoxNet aims to inspire future smart cities and provide further data-driven technologies to mitigate infrastructure-related challenges across municipalities. The company provides software to intelligently interpret data from IoT-backed sensors to solve parking challenges with a broader goal to help municipalities become more efficient and cost-effective.

“We are absolutely thrilled to join this network of like-minded innovators that share our vision for a data-driven future,” says Fox.

The Data Hub, located at 14 Erb Street West in Waterloo, brings together innovative-minded entrepreneurs through educational events, workshops, and fund-sourcing opportunities. Tech enterprises are supported in their efforts to scale up, connect with customers, and build capacities to meet future demand for data-driven technologies.
