Whether it’s to manage essential services, improve quality of life, tackle climate change, increase public safety or promote inclusion, Cities increasingly rely on Internet of Things networks to connect devices and applications. And the more interoperable and integrated the network is, the more it will be able to deliver on its promises, the more valuable data it will provide, and ultimately, the smarter, more sustainable and resilient the city will be.
The open standard 6LoWPAN allows plenty of devices on urban networks to talk to each other and share actionable information. As such, it has the potential to be one of the most significant developments yet for Open Cities.
