Sangit Rawlley Moderates a Panel on Smart Cities
inCode Managing Director Sangit Rawlley spoke as part of the Smart Cities panel at the Telecommunications Industry Association’s (TIA) Network of the Future conference on Wednesday, June 3, 2015. Other participants included Gary Bolton, VP of Global Marketing at ADTRAN, and Brandie Nonnecke, R&D Manager of the Data & Democracy Initiative for CITRIS.
Smart Cities are one of many promising use cases for new Internet of Things (IoT) and M2M technology. Cities of the future will rely on myriad devices to efficiently operate and integrate schools, libraries, transportation systems, hospitals, and power. As thought leaders in the IoT and M2M space, inCode consultants have assisted numerous clients with long-term strategy in this arena.
According to the TIA press release:
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.
