Why smart cities need to scale up their communications infrastructure...and how to do it
FREE to attend for all Smart Cities Connect registrants
about the event
Most smart city deployments today are small pilot programs with manageable scope. But what happens when smart cities start to scale? What kind of impact will there be on local networks when everything – from trash cans to traffic lights – gets connected?
This breakfast session will examine the role that network operators play in smart city development and how communities can partner with infrastructure providers to create the necessary foundation for smart city growth. Top industry executives will discuss the ins and outs of wired and wireless deployments, how low-power IoT networks fit into the equation and what type of capacity cities need to future-proof their communications infrastructure.
Participants will also examine how high-performance consumer broadband factors into the best smart city strategies, and what technical and operational approaches are working in connected communities today.
