Smart City

Smart City

According to the United Nations, approximately 66 percent of the world’s population is expected to live in cities by 2050.This rapid urban growth is already placing a considerable strain on the existing infrastructure, and with more people making the move to urban living, it’s only going to get worse in the coming years. The Internet of Things (IoT) is making it possible to make cities greener, safer and more efficient. By connecting devices, vehicles and infrastructure everywhere in a city, governments and their partners can reduce energy and water consumption, keep people moving efficiently, and improve safety and quality of life. To accommodate this new demand on cities, municipalities around the globe are turning to the Internet of Things to enhance their services, reduce costs, and improve communication and interaction.

In smart cities, many different stakeholders must work together to provide the best technology solutions. Network operators, managed service providers, system integrators and technology providers all have a role to play in working with governments to enable smart city solutions. The key is building these solutions on an open, standards-based communications platform that can be continually re-used and re-imagined for new services, insights, and applications.
