Smart Cities Ops and Apps Committee May Newsletter

“The Smart City Committee in the Fiberconnect Council MENA has a mission to promote the deployment of ultra-high-speed FTTX. This technology is considered the most sustainable access network and is vital in reducing the carbon footprint. Additionally, it serves as the core of cities' digital transformation. The committee aims to support urban development by providing guidelines, standards, and services that highlight deployment approaches, applications, and benefits for Smart Cities, campuses, and other real estate developments in the MENA region.

 This week, the focus will be on the increased achievements in smart mobility globally. The news will cover the deployment of AI-based platforms to manage road traffic in the USA, Philippines, and Estonia, as well as the deployment of AI-based micro-mobility safety measures in the UK. Furthermore, there will be coverage of the piloting of the first autonomous flight in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

 Finally, it's important to emphasize the role of optical fiber in supporting the upcoming deployments of various technologies in developing smart cities globally. Optical fiber provides the required ultra-wide bandwidth for the massive number of IoT devices embedded in these cities.
