Communities around the world are turning to innovative information communication technologies (ICT) to re-imagine the way in which residents live, work and play, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is playing a growing role in turning safer, smarter cities from vision into reality.

When combined with other components, such as communication, security and network infrastructure, IoT takes the concept of cities being aware of their environment to the next level, with a multitude of sensors making it easier to collect large volumes of data from both homogenous and heterogenous systems.

Armed with real-time monitoring and analytics, city administrators can make data-driven decisions to improve efficiency and delivery of civic services, increase engagement with communities, cut down on costs and/or gain new revenue, and even promote environmental sustainability.
