"A smart city is an urban development vision to integrate information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of things (IoT) technology in a secure fashion to manage a city's assets." - Wikipedia
Realizing the smart city vision by overpopulating targeted areas with antennas is not a practical nor aesthetic solution. Strong smart antenna technology and strategic antenna positioning are critical in minimizing and defending against multipath interference.
An effective smart city supports its native aesthetic while satisfying its present and future connectivity needs and data consumption. WavCatcher's experience, team and technology can provide substantial cost savings by helping a city and its providers to ensure a successful wireless deployment.
