LONDON, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Smart City Communication Networks

https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/2065591/Smart-City-Communication-Networks.html

Fiber, Cellular, Wi-Fi, RF Mesh, and PLC Networks for Smart Energy, Smart Transportation, Smart Water, Smart Buildings, and Smart Government:
Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

Smart city communications that connect people, objects, and sensors involve multiple access and aggregation networks that can vary from public to private and wired to wireless. For any city to become smart, it needs a strong communication infrastructure to support it. Many of the innovations associated with smart cities – in energy, transportation, and the efficient delivery of public services, for example – are based on the availability of ubiquitous communication services. Without the right communication networks, it is hard for a city become more efficient, sustainable, and safer for its citizens.

Yet, the communication layer in a smart city has largely been taken for granted and to an extent become an afterthought, with the main focus on the higher IT and data management layers. The communications environment is highly fragmented, with different technologies serving different constituencies. Today, cities are moving beyond simply connecting citizens and businesses to objects and sensors into a world of Internet of Things (IoT). This trend is spurring interest in more integrated smart city solutions and improving the interoperability, security, data privacy, and scalability of communication networks. Navigant Research forecasts that global shipments of smart city communication nodes will grow from 17 million in 2013 to 55 million in 2020.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the challenges and opportunities for smart city communication networks, with a focus on the five main sectors: smart energy, smart transportation, smart water, smart buildings, and smart government. The study explores the market issues and dynamics associated with smart city communications and covers the viewpoint of communication service providers, communication infrastructure vendors, IT vendors, and city governments. Global market forecasts for communication node shipments, infrastructure revenue, and service revenue, segmented by region, sector, communication type, and network layer, extend through 2020. The report also examines the key communication technologies related to smart city communication infrastructure, as well as the competitive landscape.

Key Questions Addressed:

What are the different types of smart city communication networks?
How do communication technologies and layers vary across the different smart city sectors?
How and where can the different communication layers be consolidated and integrated?
Which smart city communication networks will take a leading position in the marketplace?
Which is a larger market opportunity for smart city communication networks – infrastructure or services?
Which smart city sectors should communication service providers focus on?
