‘Smart Cities’ Using IoT Technology to Enhance Municipal Services; Summit Set for June

January 27th, 2016 by Sarah Ricard

AT&T and three U.S. metropolitan areas—Atlanta, Chicago, and Dallas—have joined together to establish a Smart Cities Framework using Internet of Things innovations to create solutions for cities. In the first stage, the three metros will show how Internet-connected technologies and sensors can improve municipal services.

The Smart Cities Framework adds new services in four categories (in addition to existing AT&T services): infrastructure, citizen engagement, transportation, and public safety.
