THE BASES OF SMART CITIES: INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION
In smart cities, different components interlock like the parts of a tree.
The technical communication infrastructure is the root that provides everlasting data flow. Hardware and software systems convert data into useful information so that it becomes comprehensible and visible to the citizen of the smart city. The municipal network infrastructure is, often hidden, the basis for the collection and transfer of city data into the municipal data platform. Flexible, safe and robust access provides the framework for seamless data availability and use. In addition, the use of efficient tools leads to new municipal applications that optimize the processes within the city of tomorrow, sustainably and dynamically.
