SMART CITIES between IoT systems and multiple connectivity networks to accelerate the transformation of data these systems generate into value and services.” Chris adds, “The future city represents an extensive melting pot of innovation potential. Several cities are already driving knowledge exchange in schools, universities, and laboratories. Innovation labs are expected to marry technology innovation to services and business models to create more contextualised residential and enterprise benefits.” Making it happen NCN wanted to know what Chris’ message would be to those tasked with making smart cities a reality. Chris argues, “For smart cities to become IoT operators and fully realise its value, a horizontal platform is needed. Such a platform must be able to easily onboard new use cases defined by application and device type from any industry and manage the entire ecosystem from the time the application is on-boarded until it’s removed. In addition, the platform must support scalability and lifecycle when devices become distributed by millions over periods that could exceed ten years.” C hr is a ls o a dds , “ Cit ie s have to con s ider fo ur p r io r it ie s i n t hei r tra nsformation into smar t cities : tra nsferring to a hy br i d infra s tructure, p rote ct ing d i gi tal as s ets , empowe r ing a d ata-driven o rga nis ation a nd t he i nc rea s ed [[]HH[YHY[وZ\]^H 8'BHX[[[H]YB\\HX]]H]B][ [ݘ][ۈ]\\YX]BH[\Hܙ[\][ۈH[ݙ\Y[XY\]Z[B\][ۈۈHܛ[ ][ۜ™[^\]HH\^ [\YX][ۈ[HHY]\\\Y\8'Hؘ[Y][[\ۛY[][[Y[\X[وXX[]YX[X Y ]ܚ\\[ܜ]HܘYKٝ\K[\X][ۜHݚY\BX\\HZY]H܈X[\][š[ݘ][ۋ][\HX\ٝ[ؘ[Y][[\ۛY[܈X\]Y\\]Z\\[X\[Hق\[Y[\H^\\K[Yۈ[X[[Y\[]X[]Y\˸'BۙSLHX\]Y\\\\[[^HY\Y\™HۙSLx&\]H\\ۈBXXX[\[\HX]ۙSLx&\[Y]ܚ\Yۈ[[\[[TB[\X\[X\]H[\Y\\8&\X[8&H]][K][HYX]Y\[\Y\]ܚ\ܝHX\Y]Y[\[K܂^[\K[HYH[YXY[ H]H\\[\Y\][\HZYHYB[YK]\]Y[YHB[H8&[Y8&H\X YZ[[^\Y[K]]ܚ]Y\œX[\H]\X[\[˜\H\Z[XHYX\]Y\˜\H\ܝ][\H[\B\\[[XH]HK]\KH\\\Y\]][H]X[ܙH YYXY[YB[H]ܛH[\ܝۛHY]Y[][[]Y\X\X\Y]\[\HX[Y[Y[[YX˂H\\[\Y\]YX]Y]X\YY[\[]ܚ\[\[YXY[KۙSTH^\š][H]X[ܙH BYX]HY[ܜ[][]\[[\]H]B܈Y\[\H\\ˈB[\\]\H[܈][ۙYHHY][H\YۛH\H܈X[œYۙ][ۜ][BX]\]\ٛܙX\ [H[ܜZH\[YXH\[[]^[]\Hۈ[][X][ۜ˂H]H\\\\[›]]X\]H\]X˜\H[XYH[[[ۙ¸&ܚ^۝[8&H[\ˈ]Y\ZY[YHHYY\HH\قY\[]ܚ\X[H]Y\[Y][][B\X\\XZ]HXYX›YYوY\[\X][ۜ]\][]^H[HYXYYH\[]\]HقH]ܚ\H[Z]YHX[YXXH[X[ۋH\\ۘY\]\™]\XH]YH\[ܙHZ[BYHX[\\و]ܚ™\YY\H\Y[ܙHYXY[KX[[][Y\[\܂^[\K܈YY][HYYق]\[]H\\Y[]\[\ۙH[ X[ۙH][ۋHܚ^۝[\]X\HXZ\[و\XK']Y\]BۜY\[ٙ\[HXY[\X\KX[™Y][\][\\[˜H]KY][ܙ[\][ۋ[B[ܙX\Y[ؚ[]H[[Y[Y[قZ\]^[˂YܙB[[BXB][ۜ˸'BۈHXX[][ [X\]Y\Y\܈B[X][\^\8'[\X[ۈ[^\]Y[\\]H\X\›ۛXYXHH[[]ܛK܈^[\H\[[YYXX[Y[Y[X[\\[Y\HX[Y[Y[X[ۜˈ\H[BX\]Z]\ۛX]]H]Z[XH˜ۛX]^[]XX\][[\\\[\X\˂Y]H[H\\Y[\Y[\ݙH\X\\][ۜ[]^[^\Y[\¸$܈^[\K[܈[˜[]\[H]H]Y[YY\\Y\[][ۜ˸'B\[YX]]X\]Y\H[YH[ܙHYKB\][\H[[Y[H\œ\Y]H]ܚ[ܙX]Y[[K܈^[\K]^H[ܙHYXY[ܙX]HY[˜[[]X]H]HوH[Y\K܈YX[H][H[Y\B][]^KۛHH\Y[]HYY[]\H[K[[[Y[H[HܙX]Y]\H[\H\YYXY[H[ܜX]X[ݙ[Y[ X] Y]ˋ[YYHX[ ]X][B\H\Y[]و[XB]ܚˈ\^\]][˜H[\H[܈[H[[ܛB[][܈ X^HHB[^][8&\[ۈوH]\x&B][[]\YHYXY[Y\˜[[\ۛY[[Y[Y\˂ۙH^[\H\HۙSLx&\˜\X\Y[[\YY\š[\[HXۙ [\\]B[]ܙXH]H[][ۂو ˍZ[[ۋX[]\›[ܙH[ HX\]H\X\˜XܛHۙSLH]ܛKH[\H\\\H]\K[[[][]HY]KYXš[\ݙ[Y[ \[][[[\Hۜ\][ۋH BۙHX\YX][ۋB\YX\][\X\ \[œ[Z]HXXۜK\[\HX[Yو[[ݘ][ۋۙH[\܈\KH\BX[HۛH]H\H\ق\\\H\[ܙBܚHۙKۈX[H][B][[[[[ ]X\]Y\˜\HZ[[^H[[BH^HH]Hܙ]\[ܙH[ܛX][ێۙHLBۙ[LKܙ“ؙ\ M
