With expanding urbanization, municipalities face major challenges of efficient management of public services with technologies that can improve urban-centric infrastructure. By 2050 some 68 percent of the world’s population will live in urban areas according to the UN. Municipalities worldwide either have or are in process of rapidly developing smart-city architecture to leverage efficiency while improving smart-city-focused infrastructure from city lights to garbage collection.
Across the world, Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) are building smart-city framework to sustain efficient operations. Municipalities are integrating intelligent networks with wireless/cellular technologies to leverage the framework and capture critical data emitted from countless connected sensors and devices. While many technologies support smart-city deployments, smart utility infrastructure remains at the core with advanced communications technologies already in place from SCADA to meter reading to Local Area Networks.
