The Indian Government is looking to invest 50 billion USD annually in smart cities projects.
And though still there are various challenges, the opportunities are relentless.
In an interaction with Samrt State India Mr. Amit Singh who himself is a Smart City expert and Co-Founder of Yitsol Technologies he talk about how India is taking strides towards it.

How is India approaching towards Smart City?

Smart cities is the necessity because world’s growing population is moving to urban centers. In India alone, driven by migration of people from rural areas to urban areas. Government is having a very good approach towards sustainable and green smart cities, and this should lead to the goal mentioned in the below quote – A developed country is not a place where the poor have cars. It’s where the rich use public transportation”

What are the main challenges, as we have seen that despite available solutions, we have seen a major gap in implementation, what’s your take?

Integration and management of large heterogeneous networks is one of the key challenges of smart city implementation.

Secured, Resilient and Carrier grade deployment of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) is another big challenge and faster smart city implementations with a better success rate

Protecting the technology investment of the city as the speed of developments in Smart city technologies could make technology becomes obsolete

The technology used for Smart State

IOT leads the bandwagon of the smart city technologies with great scope for AI and Big Data Analytics.
In my opinion, smart city tech is a pivot of the deep Telecom techno expertise.

How stakeholders can come together and provide total SmartCity solutions for every state?

A smart city should be seen as a joint effort with the city authorities, Private companies, and Citizen.

On the implementation perspective, there are 4 types of participants in implementing a Smart City

Integrators – Integrators that bring together various sectors of the smart city through their services & platforms

Network Service Providers – They offer networks and enterprise working solutions

Product Vendors – Smart City vendors provide assets such as smart meters and distribution devices

Managed Service providers – They provide round the clock monitoring, complete management, compliance monitoring and on site consulting.
