Rapid urbanization is leading to smarter cities that improve the lives of citizens through technology. How does this compare to smaller networks or enterprises? Are there lessons to be learned? Tech Watch brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Smart cities offer window into the evolution of enterprise IoT technology.”

Powering smart cities is one of the most ambitious use cases for the internet of things (IoT). Building managers throughout the world are more frequently looking to incorporate IoT devices and solutions into their infrastructures in order to reduce costs and improve the quality of their buildings. Smart cities offer a glimpse into the evolution of enterprise IoT technologies and implementations on the largest scale.

Arguably the greatest implementation of smart architecture and infrastructure is smart grids, which help tremendously with resource conservation. That can also be realized on a smaller scale within an organization or network.
