June Special Focus Supported by Veeam – Make Your Systems Smart City Ready

According to the 2018 Revision of World Urbanisation Prospects report by the UN, 55% of the world’s population live in urban areas, and this is expected to increase to 68% by 2050. In order to cope with the huge population growth in urban areas, new cities and townships will have to be built. These modern townships and cities will not only be able to cope with the growing population but also be more connected to the network.

Smart cities are now the future of how modern cities are developed in the world. An urban area that uses different types of electronic Internet of Things (IoT) sensors collects data and then uses it to manage assets and resources efficiently. IoT devices today are key in ensuring smart cities are connected all the time. And with 5G just around the corner, the connectivity in smart cities will only continue to improve to bring a more seamless experience to the modern homes and cities.
