Smart cities are indisputably the way of the future in urban life, and it’s an evolving trend that many people (whether they realize it or not) are embracing. As I’ve mentioned in numerous articles before, the aim behind smart cities is to make the everyday lives, communication, routines, and travel as convenient and efficient for the average person as possible by utilizing wireless innovation and machine-to-machine (M2M) communication.

While no industry has established a standard M2M platform, it hasn’t stopped this communicative method of technological communication from becoming an essential foundation to basic and complex functions that are behind the regular operations occurring every day in smart cities. One of the biggest functions that M2M communication carries out in smart cities is establishing and maintaining reliable constant broadband and Wi-Fi connections. Since the vast majority of wireless and M2M communication is wireless, Internet connectivity is an essential component in making sure the various operations that occur run smoothly and efficiently. The infographic below thoroughly breaks down the roles of M2M communication in these technologically modern metropoles, primarily with how the wireless broadband platform works.
