  • Activating a smart city requires more than intelligent infrastructure. It also takes strategic partners who can rally administrators, innovators and citizens around a common goal to make the city a better place to live, work and play. This demands a mix of different tactics to create awareness, excitement and adoption for smart installations. Cities that embrace the local community and its ideas have the power to enable incredible outcomes. Jump in as Current, powered by GE, looks at how to activate smart cities.

    In 2017, AT&T (NYSE:T) and Current, powered by GE (NYSE:GE), announced an exclusive agreement to connect cities across the United States and Mexico to the Internet of Things (IoT). Together, the two businesses are unlocking a realm of possibilities to improve the way cities operate, communicate and meet the needs of citizens.

    Over 100 years, AT&T has formed strong relationships with cities while GE has built a long history of industrial technical leadership. Now, the companies that modernized the telephone and light bulb are ushering in a new digital frontier utilizing the AT&T Smart Cities framework and end-to-end solutions from Current to transform existing streetlighting into connected intelligent infrastructure.

  • SMART CITIES ARE ACCELERATING

    Smart city technology spending is expected to reach $80 billion worldwide by the end of 2019 before skyrocketing to $135 billion by 2021, according to a new report from International Data Corporation (IDC). In fact, per the report, intelligent infrastructure ranks among the most important developments in public sector digital transformation. IDC notes that smart cities have recently evolved from a collection of discrete flagship projects to a sizeable market opportunity that will drive significant investments in environmental, financial and social aspects of urban life.1

    Accelerating the urgency for smart city tech is the United Nations’ prediction that nearly two-thirds of the world’s population will live in large urban centers by 2030. By then, 27 percent of people—nearly 2 billion individuals—will be concentrated in cities with at least 1 million inhabitants.2

    Information Age, citing a new ABI Research report, stresses smart technologies could equate to $20 trillion in economic growth for cities globally over the next decade, while further saving governments, enterprises and citizens more than $5 trillion a year by 2022.3

    Using GDP growth as a key metric, the report also highlights three dimensions or phases set to be impacted by smart city tech, including:

    • Open-data policies, with a potential incremental GDP growth of close to $1 trillion without investments in physical infrastructure • Public investments multiplier effect of up to 10 times, with a potential incremental GDP growth of $10 trillion • Structural smart urban economy growth driven by next-gen technologies

    As populations increase, intelligent infrastructure can provide opportunities for cities to flourish, including economic benefits indirectly linked to factors conducive to attracting new business to the region. At the same time, smart city tech can support the quality of life goals of a community, ultimately driving programs and initiatives that make a positive impact for everyone, every day.

    GIVING TIME BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

    IoT-enabled sensors, systems and devices that collect and analyze data can help cities improve public services and transform the way citizens live, work and play. Just consider that an Intel®-sponsored study by Juniper Research found that smart cities have the potential to “give back” a remarkable 125 hours to every resident every year.4

    In fact, many of the technologies identified in the study—including public mobility, safety and health solutions—are already being deployed around the world to deliver a better overall quality of life for city dwellers:

    M O B I L I T Y The average peak-time vehicle speed in cities is a dismal 4 mph. This gridlock causes drivers to lose up to 70 hours per year. The Intel study determined an IoT-enabled infrastructure of intelligent traffic systems, safer roads, directed parking, frictionless toll and parking payments can give back 60 hours a year to drivers otherwise stuck in their cars.

    S A F E T Y Improvements in public safety can have extensive benefits and save residents 35 hours a year, according to the study. As Forbes Technology Council notes, smart cities need to focus on people movement and maximizing those efficiencies. This includes smart roads that are prepared for autonomous vehicles, self-driving vehicle traffic systems integration and mass transit incorporation into these systems.5 Collectively, these measures can reduce congestion on roadways to make streets safer and easier to navigate.

    H E A LT H The study also found smart cities with connected health services can play a significant role in creating efficiencies and providing potentially lifesaving benefits for patients. For example, telemedicine could enable contagious flu sufferers to avoid a trip to the doctor’s office with an examination via high-speed video link from the comfort of their home. Such services could save the average citizen 10 hours a year.

    WHY ACTIVATION MATTERS

    Smart cities may be in the early stages but there’s every reason to believe these examples are just the beginning of what’s possible. First, however, a city must become activation ready by building th
