By 2050, Gartner estimates that roughly 70% of the world’s population will live in cities. The smart city is the only way to handle such growth.

Smart cities bring the Internet of Things (IoT) to life with a fabric of seamless connectivity that improves quality of life, stimulates economic growth, sustainably manages resources, and reduces pollution. It’s more than just a vision. With one smart city up and running in Korea and more planned elsewhere, it’s quickly becoming reality. As you work to turn your smart city vision into reality, Keysight is here to help.

Optimize IoT Device for Smart City

Whether in a smart city or any other IoT application, the physical device plays a central role. Tens of thousands of IoT devices will be required. They must be low power, exhibit excellent performance, able to withstand interference, and reliable.

Keysight's test solutions cover the entire IoT device development lifecycle, enabling you to fully optimize your IoT designs for power consumption, RF performance, and interoperability while ensuring you get your products to market faster.

Ensure Wireless Connectivity

In the smart city, anytime/anywhere wireless connectivity between all IoT devices and infrastructure is a given. That connectivity must be seamless, reliable, and deliver both high-quality voice and data services. In the smart city, IoT devices will likely operate over low-power wide-area networks (LPWANs) comprising both proprietary and open standard options. The use of so many wireless connectivity technologies makes the design and test of the IoT devices operating in the smart city challenging.

Keysight's smart city IoT test solutions allow you to deliver the superior performance consumers demand by testing LPWAN wireless communications under real-world conditions.

Test and Secure the Network

The network serves as the backbone of the smart city. Its performance and capacity limits are critical. Our solutions allow you to push those limits by testing with realistic traffic in the lab. Also critical is the network’s security.

Making a city smart requires the complex interaction of hybrid networks with many IoT devices acting as a central smart-grid at the hub of it all. Having these interconnected items on a single network makes it a prime target for hackers. With our network visibility solutions, you can assure the security of your infrastructure and devices, and secure everything in the smart city, from homes to phones.

Keysight Leads The Way

Smart Cities provides an in-depth analysis of the critical issues involved in the development of smart city technologies. The book is divided into 4 key topic sections — Vision and Reality, Technologies and Standards, Transportation Considerations, and Infrastructure and Environment — and examines such issues as applications, technologies, and standards.

Keysight Technologies is proud to have been a key contributor to the chapter, The Internet of Things: Nervous System of the Smart City.
