ATIS Releases Smart Cities Technology Road Map

The 5G network, augmented reality, machine learning and other innovations are delivering options to rapidly advance the power of smart cities technology. The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) released “Smart Cities Technology Roadmap” to help city planners know what’s on the horizon so that they can start developing technology visions.

The road map is the first industry publication for city decision-makers that provides an overview of the network-enabled technologies to have the greatest impact on the evolving smart city. The goal is to foster better budgeting, purchasing and staging decisions. The result will be to position city decision-makers to better manage their upcoming technology investments as they create the connected cities of the future.

The document was developed through extensive discussions with city leaders, solution providers and manufacturers — all of who are heavily invested in creating successful smart cities environments.

“Rapidly advancing capabilities to collect and analyze constant real-time data are starting to help better manage many citizen-centric functions, improving traffic flow monitoring, public safety and more,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller.

Plans being made now will be more effective if they consider the introduction of 5G solutions in the next few years, ATIS said. These deliver the promise of high bandwidth, low latency and pervasive connectivity offering smart city ecosystems a new generation of applications. The document overviews smart cities technology challenges and benefits and offers a high-level technology framework and summary of key technology enablers. It also includes a deeper analysis on the current state of standards, a review of technology choices, and an assessment of critical factors that may impact future deployment.

The road map is available here.
