Smart cities for a better world. The cities of the future will be safer, more sustainable, efficient, comfortable and interactive.
They will be an urban environment that is permanently communicating with the citizens and capable of managing public services in real-time to improve their quality of life through traffic management, garbage collection, irrigation systems, alerting the local authority when an incident occurs and allowing the government to stay in touch with the people. m2m technologies allow for the collection and transmission of information helping us to make more intelligent decisions.
The city of the future is a Smart City thanks to m2m solutions.

How does a Smart City operate with m2m technology
A Smart City is an environment that involves many technologies and multiple agents: from sensors scattered throughout the whole city (to collect any kind of data: traffic, water, energyâ¦) to the mobile devices of the citizens; from mayors to traders. All this data must be managed by a platform that centralises and processes it.
Players in a Smart City
The provision of services in smart cities involves the participation of many protagonists with different natures and characters, who play different roles.
- CITY COUNCILS
City councils are the ones that have the capability to take advantage of the benefits offered by m2m solutions and implement them in their cities to transform them into smart cities, improving their efficiency and sustainability. Councils are set to be the main promoters of the concept of a Smart City to improve the life of their citizens.
Companies in charge of providing services to City Councils are responsible for implementing and developing an infrastructure that supports a Smart City.
They are the ones in charge of implementing connectivity between urban elements, as well as developing solutions that analyse and process all the information they provide to make a city smart.
Business & entrepreneurs
Taking advantage of the technology of a Smart City enables them to improve their services for citizens. For new businesses and entrepreneurs, a Smart City works as an open development ecosystem to generate new ideas and services.
They are the ultimate beneficiaries of a Smart City, thanks to better services and a more efficient environment.
