Chordant platform aims to enable smart cities to consolidate, expose and monetise their data

"It is challenging for cities to use all their data,” says Jim Nolan.

London, UK & Melville, NY, USA. October 2, 2017 — InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDCC) today announced the launch of its Smart City-focused Chordant™ business. The Chordant platform is designed to tackle the key business and data challenges in today’s smart city deployments.

The Chordant platform has been developed to enable cities to unlock value from any data source, allowing them to build smart city solutions using a best-of-breed, easily deployable platform. Its oneM2M™ standards-based approach serves as a means of bringing the legacy and future assets together in what InterDigital calls “a future-proof, standards-compliant solution”.

The Chordant platform hides the underlying complexity from application developers, so they can focus on creating applications for cities, consumers and enterprises alike. The platform also features a simple interface for partners to access and onboard their services. Furthermore, by bringing all the data assets into one environment, cities can open the door to innovation that will result in efficiencies and benefits to their citizens.

In addition, the Chordant platform is already being utilised in a Transport Data Marketplace and other Smart City solutions.

Cities need to use all their data

“Building Smart Cities is becoming an important focus for government bodies worldwide. However, it is challenging for cities to effectively utilise all their data,” said Jim Nolan, executive vice president, Chordant, at InterDigital. “If cities are to maximise and monetise their data, they need a strong, collaborative, interoperable ecosystem capable of delivering Smart City solutions. Chordant provides just the platform to deliver on that commitment.”

Chordant-enabled solutions will be showcased at several upcoming smart city industry events in the United States, Europe and Asia. Chordant is an InterDigital business. InterDigital develops mobile technologies that are at the core of devices, networks, and services worldwide. Founded in 1972, InterDigital is listed on NASDAQ and is included in the S&P MidCap 400® index.
