Kansas City has signed a letter of intent with Cisco Systems Inc., an information management company, to introduce innovative ways to deliver city services downtown.

An announcement by the city is short on specifics but mentions interactive kiosks and mobile apps “that will promote resident engagement,” as well as smart street lighting to save energy and money and high-definition security video.

The programs are part of Cisco’s Smart+Connected Communities program.

“Cisco’s investment is proof that Kansas City is at the forefront of technological advancement,” Mayor Sly James said in the city’s announcement. “This joint effort will connect our visitors and residents with our city’s services and information like never before.”
