Until recently, most M2M and Internet of Things (IoT) applications have relied on high-speed cellular and wired networks for their wide area connectivity. Today, there are a number of IoT applications that will continue to require higher-bandwidth, however others may be better suited for low-power wide-area (LPWA) options that not only compliment traditional cellular networks, but also unlock new market potential by reducing costs and increasing the flexibility of solution deployments. With LPWA, many alternatives have emerged – some fall under the 3GPP standard and use licensed spectrum such as LTE Cat-M1 and NB-IoT, while other alternatives such as LoRaWAN™ are based on non-3GPP standards and use unlicensed ISM spectrum. IoT certainly has its challenges – from choosing the right device, to adding connectivity and then managing those devices and the data they generate. One thing is certain and that is technology is continuously evolving and changes are on the horizon.

Being Smart about Smart City Requirements
SC-03
Mark Modzelewski
VP Operations Manager
Treeline Interactive
It all starts with true citizen engagement. A city isn't an entrenched industry in need of a shock to the system--it's our home. Turning cities “smart” requires systematic engagement of those who are expected to live in these environments. Making a city “smarter” is not a bad idea, per se. There is enormous potential to improve our health, safety, and transportation through the use of data, computing, and the Internet. But we need to get away from this paradigm that individual improvements driven by technology are a panacea.

Jim Frazer
Senior Executive – Intelligent Transportation Systems, Illumination and the Smart City

As the services providers look to roll out 5G, it comes at a perfect time for cities to use their streetlights as locations for 5G equipment. Negotiating about streetlights offers a balance between tax revenue and the ability to negotiate for services and support. However, many cities have not done a real assessment of what the value and capabilities are within their cities. This session learns from various cities successes and misjudgments.
