Description

In the future, cities will be much smarter than they are today. But success depends on a common approach amongst government, city councils and the mobile industry. Early engagement with mobile operators in the planning process means cities can realise the benefits that arise from the operators’ local presence and fully standardised networks, delivering real, long-term benefits to businesses and citizens. 

How can the mobile industry help cities develop sustainable and innovative smart city services? And what makes mobile operators strategic partners for smart cities? This session will explore key prerequisites required from industry players to build a successful smart cities strategy.
