By 2030, two thirds of the world’s population will live in cities, the urban population in developing countries will double, and the area covered by cities could triple.
Solutions that will increase safety, lifestyle and overall efficiency will require bandwidth and lots of it. Forecasts range from 25 to 50 billion IOT devices will have been deployed by 2020, requiring hundreds of zettabytes of data – that’s a trillion gigabytes, or a 10 followed by 21 zeros –that will be attributed just to IoT devices. Clearly, the more solutions are deployed, the larger these numbers will grow.
The new world of smart cities relies heavily on fixed broadband high-speed networks to transport all that wired and wireless data, and on the flexible deployment of sensing and monitoring systems to make services run more smoothly.
During Exhibit Hall Hours
Exhibit Hall, Booth 2841
To learn more about Smart City applications and what it takes to make them work, visit the Smart Cities display area at Booth 2841 October 23-25—hosted by ARRIS-Ruckus Networks (wired and wireless networks and services); Tektelic (LoRaWAN Gateways and sensors); LG-MRI (smart city style kiosks); AXIS Communications’ (wireless intelligent cameras); and Signify (formerly Philips Lighting) connected street lighting.
The exhibits will focus on Smart City technologies, including an Internet kiosk, IoT sensing solutions, smart street furniture and wireless cameras systems. All these devices use WiFi, telemetry and sensor technology to relay and receive data from centralized monitoring hubs and the results are striking. Smart cities are saving OPEX, improving dispatch and directional efficiency, improving safety and generally raising the quality of life for city dwellers and visitors.
