Smart Cities are set to see significant advancements in 2018, thanks to ICTs designed to improve operations, services, and quality of life.
2017 was an intense year for IoT-enabled smart cities, for the city planners, but also for researchers, policymakers and providers of digitization infrastructure
5G will help make smart sustainable cities a reality. But with so many different interests involved in planning smart cities, collaboration is key.
The increasing importance of over-the-top (OTT) services calls for greater application security. The impending arrival of quantum computing demands innovation in cryptography to guard against new threats to security. Accelerated debate is required around policy support for 5G (IMT-2020) infrastructure investment. Data sharing remains a key priority for the Internet of Things (IoT), particularly IoT applications in smart cities.
