I had the pleasure of hosting myself on Thursday, May 26, 2022, to attend the World Conference, held in Ohio, USA, in which global planners and decision makers participated in the field of new technologies that the world during this century, in person Invitation from Carolina Rudinsky, Co-Founder, Co-Founder and General Manager Lucian Fukurus for: IIoT World “Industrial Internet of Things” American media, concerned about the world’s achievements in the field of 5G communication, digitization and modern technology, especially the applications of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, virtual reality, Al-Mazar, smart cities, and industrial and economic applications for distribution to the world Global Community, where the main topic was titled: “Intelligent Secure Edge (ISE) for Smart Cities”
Before we begin to discuss what took place in the conference and explain and interpret the title, let’s simplify the concept and definition of smart cities and their features after this introduction. Smart cities are those that use information and communication technology (ICT) to operationally improve efficiency, share information with the public, and provide better quality of government services and the well-being of citizens. The main goal of a smart city is to improve city functions and promote economic growth, while improving the quality of life for citizens by using smart technologies and data analysis, where its value lies in how this technology is used rather than just a large amount of this technology available.
The definition of the smart city is done using a set of features, including technology-dependent infrastructure, environmental initiatives, efficient and effective public transportation, in addition to the city’s well-planned plans and people capable of to live and work the city using its resources. The success of a smart city thus depends on the relationship between the public and private sectors, as much of the work to create and maintain a data-driven environment falls outside the competence of local government, for example, smart surveillance cameras may require input and technology from various companies. Regardless of the technology used by a smart city, there is also a need for data analysts to evaluate the information provided by smart city systems so that any issues can be addressed and improvements found.
Let’s get to the core of the conference topic, the biggest challenge is why are smart cities important? 54% of the world’s population lives in cities, and this number is expected to rise to 66% by 2050, which will add 2.5 billion people to the city’s population over the next three decades. With this projected population growth, there is a need to manage the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the resources. It is the rapid urbanization and growing population that has burdened cities. In addition, citizens expect their cities to be safe, clean and comfortable in their daily lives. The efforts of governments and authorities worldwide to achieve this must be well thought out. Challenges such as high crime, increased pollution, traffic congestion and congested public infrastructure are an uphill and expensive battle.
Next-generation technologies such as: G5, 6G, AI, Edge, WiFi 6, WiFi 7, and cyber security among others can help develop smart cities to take advantage of these technologies, and for smart cities to create a connected ecosystem of digital create technology to collect data from multiple locations To extract insights and simplify city operations. These ideas can be contextualized to drive better decision making.
Globally, the smart city market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 20.5%, from $ 1.19 billion in 2022 to $ 2.51 billion in 2025.
ISE technology or known as intelligent data processing (on the edge) or on the edges in smart devices in cities built by HCL IoT WorkS using Intel technology is a collaborative platform that enables citizens, communities and authorities bring together a virtual network powered by artificial intelligence, Edge, Wi-Fi 6, 5G and other next-generation technologies. The new Internet of Things (IoT) applications enable smart city activities around the world, and on the other hand they also increase the cost and inertia in the transfer of information and data as all this data is sent to the computer cloud or central data centers for further analysis and processing. In such a scenario, IoT deployments need to intelligently process information and decision making near the data source (on the edge) or on its edge by ISE technology, thus reducing costs and time associated with cloud data transfer.
With a detailed explanation, the data collected from the various components of the smart city is huge. Big data represents a challenge that you have to think about while planning for a sustainable smart city because of the difficulty and cost of running it. To address it. problem, smart city initiatives can adopt advanced analytics that collect and analyze data in marginal analysis. Or where it is obtained at the edges, Machine Learning is performed on the data received from sensors, network hubs or other devices instead of sending it back to a central data store, by executing the data using edge analysis algorithms that enable companies to set variables and constants to determine The information to be sent to the computer cloud for later use which reduces the latency in the decision making process of the connected devices, which will be a KPI for smart city management and that is why use our edge intelligence technology for the smart city ISE
Advantages of using ISE technology:
Make the appropriate decision about the location of the actual event.
Lower Latency Lower Latency
Low cost of communication.
Autonomy of things in the smart city
Compile a fully computerized model with a local identity for all smart city components.
Send preprocessed data so that decisions or alerts can only be sent to computer cloud servers instead of raw data.
– Improving the quality of the data transmitted or analyzed.
Low volume data sent or analyzed.
Manage traffic and roads inside and outside smart cities and respond to their data.
Safety in educational complexes such as kindergartens, schools, institutes and universities.
Optimal management of government and legislative facilities.
– Intelligent control and monitoring of stadium events, celebrations and conferences.
Providing services within the ports in a better way.
– Smart parking lots in areas of commercial events, service facilities and venues for celebrations.
Maintenance and operation of city lights.
Travel, main garages and central tunnels for transport lines inside and outside the city combine a network of buses and trains.
– Protect borders and facilitate customs procedures in a safe and easy way.
Control and protect water resources and avoid floods in winter.
Therefore, we hope that in the near future, this ISE technology will help build safe and sustainable smart cities through innovation, collaboration and partnerships, preserving the environment and facilitating people’s lives for more quality, luxury and prosperity. In Jordan, we need to accelerate digitization. , smart and modern applications, and moves to the fifth generation to provide the opportunity to use. These applications are for our cities and the creation of new smart cities because of their great benefits that benefit the citizen, the environment and the economy and improve security, safety and appropriate qualification for all government and private cadres who will work to develop this technology use and continue.
