With 5G on the horizon and fibre broadband networks being deployed in many countries around the world; it is timely to consider how important it is to get this infrastructure right in order to provide the foundation for the development of smart cities. Look towards 2019 we can see there are a number of countries showing leadership in smart city development and many of these also have extensive high-speed networks in place.
We are migrating from Smart Cities being a concept of the future and now seeing cities make tangible plans and infrastructure decisions to support such a transformation. This also means we can begin to see more clearly the obstacles and challenges involved.
This BuddeComm report identifies the leading countries in terms of smart city development from around the world and explores the various drivers, inhibitors and issues that might be considered regarding smart cities.
We wanted to extend our Com World Series of telecoms industry events to the South Pacific region and we were in urgent need of a partner in the region who could assist us with confirming the involvement of governments, telcos and more. Paul Budde and his team executed this perfectly. Paul also provided us with very high quality reports on every aspect of the project, including an amazingly thorough and actionable report on the conference presentations and discussion.
