ITU-T Y.4000-series - An overview of smart cities and communities and the role of information and communication technologies
This Supplement to ITU-T Y.4000 series provides an overview of roles of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in Smart Sustainable Cities (SSC) primarily based on ITU-T Recommendations. A SSC aims to improve quality of life, efficiency of urban operation and services, and competitiveness, ensuring that needs of present and future generations with respect to economic, social, environmental as well as cultural aspects of cities and communities are met.

Smart sustainable cities in general, share the end goal of achieving an economically sustainable urban environment without sacrificing on the quality of life (QoL) of their citizenry. A smart city and community strives to create a sustainable living environment for citizens using the Internet of things (IoT), enabled by information communication technologies (ICTs).

An IoT-based infrastructure, enabled using ICTs, can continue to play a pivotal role in smart sustainable cities by functioning as a platform for the aggregation of information and data that can help government officials and citizens understand how the city is functioning in terms of resource consumption and services.
