This was a great show.

Platinum

thank you for the information!

 

Steel

bye for now :) until next time - thanks :)

Platinum

@carl - thanks for the reply. And great discussion overall. Thanks to you and Telco Trans

Steel

Folks, wish you all a good night or long and productive workday, signing off!

Author

HuubvH, regarding business models, think there are a few good enough models, which ones have you been reviewing?

Author

until next time :)

Platinum

I am still waiting for a sound business model for smart cities. If it cannot be provide there will never be a smart city, it will always be biased by the part that has the most money

Steel

Thanks Carl, and thanks everyone for joining us to today. This radio show will be archived and available immediately.

Author

Thank you all, it was a lot of fun, nothing as rewarding as talking about something you really enjoy doing :)

Author

thank you for a great show and plesant chat :)

Platinum

great, Carl, will do thanks :)

Platinum

Great show, Thanks so much for all the helpful info. Learned a lot!

Platinum

I do hope to see one day smart cities in Canada, but we are good few years behind USA...

Platinum

batye; fire me an email cpiva@tmforum.org and we can chat more!

Author

On TM Forum, check out research on "Operations Center of the Future." 

Author

Interoperability: Hi Mike, I have almost concluded that it will be too difficult to get "IoT" to be "standardized" in a reasonable timeframe. We need to manage a fairly fragmented environment for time to come, and impose certain horizontal layering as we move forward. One such example is e.g. the use of the TM Forum's digital partnering APIs, now also being built into/on top of FiWARE.

Author

The standards question is a good one that we didn't get to in the live audio

Author

Liz: Biggest challenge when talking to cities going smart? One of the key challenges is the multitude of options and approaches available to them... there are just so many ways to make the wrong decisions (for all involved!). Finding leadership is another.

Author

would love to know more

Platinum

I think every city should have a happiness decree

Platinum

How do we reconcile competing standards to make sure smart cities subsystems can interoperate with each other?

@Mike I imagine the cultural transformation is a big challenge for many cities -- I wonder how the rural telcos are approaching smart city technology in the US

Platinum

On cultural transformation: There is a new culture that comes with this that I would prefer to call Transparency. Everything you do in the city will be out there in the open to share. For a city to embrace this is a cultural shift.

Author

Carl, is there a culteral transformation that needs to take place, and how does the forum address that? 

 

Author

@mitch, great question, think it starts with understanding the drivers for community engagmement and citizen happiness. Dubai is an example of a city that focuses on the happiness angle by decree from His Highness. 

Author

Thanks Carl & Hi back!

Platinum

Thanks. Good thinkings.

Steel

@NewIPLiz hi there! Building an understanding how to approach the entire challenge of heterogenious networks and what role to play. Bristol is Open has a very innovative approach! Others choose a different path.

Author

Very interesting show. Thanks, Carl and Mike.

Gold

Great show @Carl and @Mike

Platinum

OK, lots of questions here. Carl, how about the first question from Mitch?

 

Author

Hi tsoto, one of the most surprising developments probably relate to open data and the various approaches to it. 

 

Author

Great presentation and chat, Carl! Thank you.

How do we ensure that smart cities work for citizens, not just for business and government?

if you're smart you don't need IPV6

 

Steel

Carl: What has been the most surprising development you've found since working on smart cities initiatives? 

Steel

@Carl what changes on the network side are cities having to make to get ready to be smart?

Platinum

Can IP6 able to handle all these mass increase in device address ??

Steel

Hello from Tallinn, Estonia! Looking for smarter city covernment soon to start something smart :) So far we try to build local citizens communities based smarter city! One project is to enable the open Lora based The Things Network in Tallinn as going on around the globe.

NewIPLiz - Not to my knowledge, though it's not something I have been following closely. 

Dallas - none yet, Working with AT&T soon

Steel

with smart cities it like future now :)

Platinum

@mitch really no smart at all in San Diego? that's surprising

Platinum

Chicagoland -- smart parking, smart traffic

Platinum

San Diego. Far as I know we are in no way smart. 

@Carl where do cities stand to see the biggest boost to their bottom line if they get smart? 

Platinum

Security and privacy.

 

Steel

Transportation & Industry get my vote

Platinum

Mmm, tricky one - maybe energy.

Gold

I'd vote security. Always a pervasive issue. But the industrial IOT has huge potential too.

Industry/businesses. That's where the money is. 

Seems like a few women are involved @sarah! Go Women in Comms!

Platinum

@NewIPLiz Definitely on Bristol, and I agree about the smart parking in Chicago, LIz. That's one thing they've done quite well.

sounds like Bristol is a leader @Sarah

Platinum

yes, as everything changes

Platinum

My hometown, Kansas City, seems to be a good example, with the city driving the charge along with Cisco and Sprint. Any other good examples in the States or is Europe really the leader here?

@Carl, what is the biggest challenge you've faced when talking to cities about going smart? 

Platinum

Are cities usually driving the charge for transformation, or does it come from service providers and others looking for public-private partnerships?

In the smart city plan, how the security of each device within the network got protected? Security was invaded in lot of cases. 

Steel

I know smart parking and traffic management is key for cities. I love smart parking in Chicago. Makes things so much easier.

Platinum

the city where I live plans to be the first smart city in NL

Steel

In which particular areas are cities most interested in making use of smart city technologies - traffic, street lighting, something else?

Gold

Which cities have taken a lead in this area? Which are the 'smartest'?

Gold

I imagine there are way more policitics involved in smart city initiatives -- that must be a challenge for service providers -- at least in Chicago there would be. 

Platinum

What do you see as the biggest roadblock to enabling smart cities?

funding

technologies

building a unified ecosystem/standards

Author

Hello from Dallas

 

Steel

How's the weather in Canada @Batye?

Platinum

Hello from Canada to Carl :)

Platinum

cold but going to be 50 tomorrow which means we all open our windows and pretend it's summer

Platinum

NewIPLIz - Overcast and wet. How's Chicago?

Welcome to the Radio Show and Chat everyone! Everyone say hello to Carl and tell us where you listening in from.

This is Sarah Thomas, btw, in Chicago. 

Chicagoland! Still snowcovered here -- frozen like a tundra.

Platinum

I'm here in gloomy London.

Gold
@Editoria43531 Chicago...solving basic issues?! Never!
Platinum

Hello everyone. Looking forward to today's radio show.

Gold

should be interesting show and chat after :)

Platinum

Hi All! Looking forward to this show and chat. I'm tuning in from Chicago, which aims to be a smart city and the most data driven in the world...but I think it has a loooong way to go solving basic issues first! 

Hi, everyone, looking forward to hearing about smart cities here at America's Finest City. 

I am missing the IMHO hot topic "privacy". Especially the relation between "security" and privacy".

 

Steel

Hi all! Looking forward to a great conversation!

Author

Looking forward to hearing with Carl has to say on the show today.
