Public Transportation has become more efficient these days. Thanks to the government’s initiatives like “Smart Cities” and “AMRUT” which is paving the way for safe and improved inter and intra-city services. These programs are prioritizing the technologies that are proven to measurably improve the quality of life, increase efficiency and reduce cost to the community.
The initiatives are not limited to large urban areas. In fact, some of the most dramatic achievements have been made in smaller communities where applications are deployed in “greenfield” environments.
Smart cities invest in technologies that enable collaboration. Communities can share sensor data, and leverage a common IP-based communications infrastructure.
Wireless broadband provides the high-speed connectivity needed, and provides a proven solution that can be deployed at a fraction of the cost and time of fiber or wired connectivity.
