The GSMA is promoting a central role for the mobile industry in shaping the commercial UAV market.
Drones can be used to enhance smart city services such as safety, improved traffic flow, improved delivery services and crowd control measures. Mobile networks can be used to securely identify a drone and its location in order to help ensure the safety of commercial drones and to help mitigate privacy, safety and security risks. This makes mobile networks the preferred solution, offering drones superior wide area, high speed and secure connectivity.
