BABLE London — now live! 

Dear Smart City Community,  We are thrilled to publicly announce that we are expanding! Due to our remarkable growth over the last four years, we now have the pleasure and honour of revealing that BABLE has officially opened an office in London!   We invite you to celebrate with us and to read over the Use Cases below, which showcase four implementation stories from London.    We hope to see some of you in the great city of London when the time comes to meet in person again. Thanks for your continued support and for your motivation to help drive the change for a better urban life.    Sincerely,  Your BABLE Team
