- Sep 26, 2019-

By using of various information technology or innovative technology, Smart City integrates urban systems and services to increase the efficiency of resource utilization, to optimize urban management and services, and to improve the quality of life of citizens.

Smart City is a high-level form of informationalized city by  making full use of the new generation of information technology in all walks of life, realizing the deep integration of informatization, industrialization and urbanization, which will help to alleviate the "big city disease", to improve the quality of urbanization, to achieve fine and dynamic management, to enhance the effectiveness of urban management. and to improve the life quality of citizens.

5G is the latest generation of cellular mobile communication technology. 5G networks can transmit data at speeds of up to 10 GB per second, while 4G networks only 100 MB per second. Based on the data, we can find that 5G can make the Internet have lower latency and greater interconnection (more devices can be connected at the same time). Global coverage of 5G network is expected to start in 2020.

The Internet of Things (IoT) technology connects the tangible objects we usually use to the Internet and provides better service to customers by generating network data and transmitting data to terminals. Nowadays, the most intuitive application of the rapid development of IoT technology is Smart Home.

Once there is a platform for smart devices, especially low-power devices, the IoT will be greatly promoted. The more convenient you use these devices, the more devices you will connect into the network. As a matter of fact, the Internet has been fully integrated into human life. As early as 2016, the United Nations declared that the use of the Internet is a human right and everyone should enjoy the right to use the Internet.
