Smart Cities / Infrastructure

Service organizations need to understand issues in advance, so they know which technicians, tools, and parts need to arrive on-site in order to maximize the probability of fixing the issues on the first visit.

General Overview of Industry w/r/t Service and Challenges:

Our world is changing at a rapid pace, and technologies that make cities smart will be the centerpiece of this change.  Every aspect of a city can benefit from becoming smart such as transportation, grids, waste management, air quality, security, and overall infrastructure.

While the US and various other countries are behind when it comes to implementing IoT infrastructure, the demands even at this early stage are becoming significant.  With technological advancements at our fingertips, cities are primed to take that leap forward providing the possibilities to catchup quickly.  One of the challenges is grappling with the shear amount of IoT data.  According to statista.com in 2019 13.6 Zettabytes of data was generated from IoT connections worldwide. This is expected to grow by nearly 6-fold by 2025!  This amount of data is staggering and with Smart Cities being at the center of the demand, infrastructure will be challenged to manage such heavy amount of data. Analysis and responsiveness will be critical since the safety of people and mission critical systems like power grids, water processing, and safety measures associated must be accurate and reliable.  When it comes to public safety, the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated how critical it is to maintain the focus on connected cities.  As a result, many cities are trying to double down on their smart city efforts so that the public can be made aware of the latest information and reducing the spread of the virus.  These efforts will also make cities prepared and equipped to manage the next crisis.

As leaders recognize the overwhelming importance of smart cities along with the abundance of data, security has now become the prime focal point.  Proactive measures to prevent hacking of systems and protection of data privacy are valid concerns. While security and privacy are now central themes, managing the infrastructure in support of security still has proven to be a challenge.  Collaboration across the most modern platforms (Both Hardware and Software) is needed in order to meet the strict and multi-dimensional requirements.

How Spoke AIoT helped this Customer

Businesses and city officials can use IoT for an array of benefits, from energy efficiency, weather, smart grid and utilities to air pollution, transportation, traffic congestion, and public safety.  And this only scratches the surface.  Because IoT provide real time insights, it can help cities to better managed the various resource constraints they routinely face.  This will make everyday tasks easier to manage by more efficiently providing relief to those typical pain points of budget and resource constraints.  For example, smart traffic signals and congestion tracking that can respond to reduce traffic bottlenecks.  These kinds of improvements have extended benefits such as environmental by reducing gas emissions and people safety by ensuring smooth traffic flow and satisfaction with reduction in commute times.  Residences of smart cities will see benefits in public safety by having real time crime mapping, gunshot detection and tools to help prevent crimes from happening.  

Quick Wrap-up and Call to Action

Smart cities and infrastructure allow for a lot more to be done with less with the potential to be nearly limitless. Ultimately with connected cities and tapping into smart technology like AIoT, cities become efficient and safer thus improving quality of life and the well-being of citizens.  Growth will continue to accelerate in the coming years and technologies that provide the control, autonomy and flexibility will be best suited to meet the demands.  Reach out to an expert at Spoke AIoT to learn how we can partner to achieve the strict demands needed to transform your city to smart.
