The Tele2 IoT Smart City White Paper

Learn how IoT enables smarts cities – from connected buildings and smart utility management to smart traffic and parking

The smart city concept offers different opportunities for different cities, meaning the needs of cities in developing countries may not be the same as their more developed counterparts. According to the United Nations, the most immediate need is to provide adequate urban infrastructure. In the process of meeting that need smart infrastructure applications may provide the way for developing cities to achieve leapfrogging through technology. 

The advent of 5G will accelerate the adoption of smart city technology, and allow a massive increase in the amount of data being exchanged, with embedded sensors becoming the norm. The result will be information on everything from air quality and traffic patterns to the amount of trash in bins. IoT brings together technology, government, and society to enable a smart economy, smart mobility, smart living, smart governance, smart healthcare, and a smart environment in order to address the rapidly changing needs of society.
