JUST WHAT IS A SMART CITY? AND HOW DO THEY GET SO SMART?

Industrial Internet Consortium Members share how Industrial Internet technology is enabling Smart Cities.

As the total population living in urban areas continues to escalate, the increase brings with it the need for intelligent, sustainable environments offering high quality of life – the demand for smart cities.

“Smartness” comes in many forms. Some people think of a Smart City as a sophisticated, futuristic metropolis: Neo Seoul in Cloud Atlas, 2013; City of Domes from Logan’s Run, 1976, or The Capitol as seen in The Hunger Games, 2012. But a Smart City can be any municipality, campus, country or region that is adopting technologies to streamline efficiencies and improve operations. 

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is one of the main technology drivers behind smart cities. The integration of IIoT applications in smart cities will bring numerous benefits. However, integration of different technologies, processes, business, social, and regulation realms presents complicated security, privacy & interoperability challenges which must be addressed as IIoT technologies develop.

Feature Testbed: Time Sensitive Networking is the evolution of standard Ethernet and as the IIoT matures, time sensitive networking is envisioned to be useful in a wide range of applications, including utilities, transportation and oil and gas. The Time Sensitive Networking Testbed recently won an award for bringing strategic value to the Industrial Internet Consortium, and team members will be on hand with an insightful keynote and to discuss how you can get involved.

Join us as we explore the emerging technologies & IIoT applications for smart cities. Hear from a panel of experts on challenges in areas such as smart microgrid security monitoring, intelligent urban water supply management, solar plant asset optimization, retail analytics, connected healthcare, and first responder ambulance route optimization.

What you can expect: Guest speakers from Dell EMC, Asavie, & GE Digital will share how they are developing and applying the Industrial Internet to enable Smart Cities.

What you will learn: How the Industrial Internet is shaping the future of smart cities and how you can get involved. Industry experts will share insight on the complex challenges, best practices and reasonable expectations for short and long-term success.
