Smart Cities

Internet of Things (IoT) solutions are increasingly becoming a staple of modern cities. Across the globe, city planners and service providers are realising that urban challenges can be overcome by using smart, connected services.

This is being felt across multiple sectors: fundamental improvements in utilities, transport and waste management are improving the quality of services and saving costs in the process.

Mobile network operators, with their long history of providing connectivity and digital services, are a natural and crucial partner in the deployment of secure and reliable connected smart city solutions.

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.

Our smart cities initiative provides an array of resources which can assist governments, city planners and digital service providers in their quest to deploy connected solutions and create cities that are truly smart.
