Global Urbanization Driving IoT Enabled Smart City Solution Market

By 2025, the world will be home to 8 billion people who mostly live in cities. The population growth and increasing migration to cities are creating several unique challenges. Every area in urban communities is going to be challenged by the increasing urbanization.

IoT makes urban infrastructures in cities smarter, saving costs and making people’s lives safer, easier and cleaner.

Making Cities Smarter is a Multi-Billion Dollar Solution Business

The only way to overcome the challenges of rapidly increasing urbanization is to make cities smarter by integrating real-time data, communication technologies, sensors, and devices.

Efficient and cleaner traffic and public transportation

Predictive waste management and recycling

Efficient and intelligent lighting and heating

Smarter environment and ambient quality management

Unsolved IoT Challenges Reduce Smart City Solution Profitability

The countless sensors on street lights, waste bins and vehicles scattered all over the world are connected to networks of different service providers and managing them on isolated platforms increase operational costs for Smart City solution providers.

Contracts with several service providers lead to multiple stock-keeping-units for a single product, thus prohibiting solution providers from gaining the benefits of economies of scale.

Every day Smart City solution providers lose millions of dollars from their margins due to multiple, un-optimized price plans. Administrating contracts is a fulltime effort, which increases operational costs.

Developing Smart City sensor hardware to comply with several local standards and environments is time-consuming. And, producing small, localized volumes of hardware result in high unit cost.


Simplifying IoT for Smart City Solutions

Our IoT Suite provides Smart City solution providers a single management view on their sensors even if scattered across multiple IoT platforms and connected through different service providers’ networks.
