Delivering the promise of smart/safe cities involves a lot more than simply deploying Internet of Things (IoT) sensors everywhere and hoping for the best. And while fiber is often the primary delivery mechanism or backbone for Smart City initiatives, there are numerous use cases where fiber deployment isn’t practical or cost effective. From telemetry to 5G, this session will explore the different wireless spectrum and technologies that are available for Smart City wireless networks and key differences in the tools, access, implementation, connectivity, performance, coverage, configuration and costs. Whether it’s from 911 or a street light, hear about the initiatives that are being implemented today to ensure that jurisdictions have the appropriate connectivity, sensors, infrastructure and analytics—the tools necessary to reliably collect data and extract relevant data points that supports efficient, effective decision making.
