Synopsis

With 5G on the horizon and fibre broadband networks being deployed in many countries around the world; it is timely to consider how important it is to get this infrastructure right in order to provide the foundation for the development of smart cities. Look towards 2019 we can see there are a number of countries showing leadership in smart city development and many of these also have extensive high-speed networks in place.

We are migrating from Smart Cities being a concept of the future and now seeing cities make tangible plans and infrastructure decisions to support such a transformation. This also means we can begin to see more clearly the obstacles and challenges involved.

  • In 2018 there are new smart city standards underway form the ISO.
  • The most difficult issue to resolve in building smart cities is the funding.
  • 5G will assist to accelerate developments for smart communities.
