When governments look at how to adopt Smart City solutions, the path to adoption is not clear-cut. Every city has its own unique needs based upon the regional geography, population demographics and the composition of the local economy. The communications industry is in a unique position to assist governments to overcome the challenges of urbanization and address the current and future well-being of metropolitan populations.
Here at TIA 2015 Network of the Future to tell us about Smart Cities is Brandie Nonnecke, R&D Manager of the Data & Democracy Initiative for CITRIS, that’s the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society. Also with us is Gary Bolton, Vice President of Global Marketing at ADTRAN, and Sangit Rawlley Managing Director of the Business Strategy Group, inCode Consulting, that is part of the Ericsson Group.
