Expansion of Cisco Jaipur Lighthouse City Program
Jaipur, as a Cisco Lighthouse City has collaborated with Cisco on a number of key initiatives aimed at advancing Jaipur’s vision of becoming a global model and standard for sustainable urban digitization and development. In the first phase of the Lighthouse City program – Smart Lighting, Connected Transportation, Waste Management and Control Center will be all integrated on the Cisco Smart+Connected Digital Platform.
Cisco will also collaborate with the government in its efforts in water resource management. Cisco’s Water Management solutions offer near real-time visibility across the state’s water assets through Internet of Things (IoT) water sensors that transmit information on water levels and flows.

The Digital Classroom solutions through SIEMAT, the Cisco Networking Academy courses in 25 government ITIs and networking of ITIs in the Divisional Headquarters and Anta – are efforts that make us all proud. 60% of our population is youth and it is for us to work together, make a difference in their lives and help them live their dreams”

The impact of digitization is all encompassing – citizen-centric services for enhanced quality of life, smart secure communities, innovation, entrepreneurship, digital skills and education for all. Honourable Chief Minister, Vasundhara Raje truly understands the many benefits digitization will bring to the state and its citizens.
