urban informatization and network technology

Cities are getting smarter every day, using information and communications technologies to enrich and enhance city life.

The growth of the Internet of Things will have a fundamental impact on the development of smart cities, helping to drive efficiencies and delivering rich new services. However, without effective strategies in place, cities will be unable to capitalise on these benefits.

The GSMA is working with mobile operators, governments and city councils to agree a common approach to smart city solutions that will deliver real, long-term benefits to businesses and citizens.
