    As smart phones reach peak saturation and the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes a normal part of human lives, the smart city movement has also spread to small towns and rural communities as the technologies that drive it grow more self-contained. From security to convenience to revenue generation, smart city applications will change the way cities operate and the way people live and work. But it all starts with connectivity - smart city residents, vehicles, systems and applications must be connected, and this involves robust fiber infrastructure in all cases. Smart city is more than a trend - it is the wave of the future as the world becomes more urban, with 60 percent of the population expected to live in cities by 2050. Smart city technology spending reached USD 80 billion in 2016, and is expected to grow to USD 135 billion by 2021, according to a report from the International Data Corporation (IDC). This is happening because cities are digitally transforming to improve environmental, financial, and social aspects of urban life. Further according to IDC, the use of smart initiatives combined to leverage technology investments across an entire city, with common platforms increasing efficiency, data being shared across systems, and IT investments tied to smart missions. But, according to the United Nations, 68 percent of the global population will live in cities by 2050. While cities hold most of the world’s wealth, it also produces 70 percent of CO2 emissions and consumes two-thirds of energy worldwide. To improve urban living and to optimize their resources, cities are folding internet-connected devices into streetlights, municipal infrastructure, parking meters, and more, composing what could be called the technological portion of a smart city. So, smart communities enrich the lives of residents and make local governments more efficient in responding to their citizens’ needs.
