Moving Towards Smart Communities In Europe -- Frost & Sullivan Explores The Role Of The Mobile Industry

LONDON, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Developing smart cities and making local communities more efficient, sustainable and vibrant is a political priority in Europe. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), and especially the mobile sector, play a pivotal role in building Europe's smart future.

"The role of the mobile industry is fundamental in the development of smart communities. Mobile broadband is an essential building block of our 'always on' status," says Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager, ICT, Saverio Romeo. "Mobile devices are our interface with the reality and the spaces we live and work in. Mobile computing enables us to book theatre tickets, check our bank account, ask for birth certificates, pay for transport, measure our blood pressure, and many more similar activities."

"During the Mobile World Congress, we have seen many new ideas starting from major improvements in the smartphone and tablet space," he continues. "We look at the new Blackberry Z10 and HTC ONE as well as the launches from Huawei, Sony, Samsung, ZTE and Nokia. There is also a new arrival for mobile devices – the Firefox OS by Mozilla. These offerings are at the cutting edge of mobile technologies and are increasingly designed around the idea that mobile phones are not just for communication and entertainment, but are intelligent tools for our work and life engagement. The Barcelona Congress reveals even more in terms of applications and solutions in domains of payment, transport, healthcare and energy. The mobile industry, almost unconsciously, is becoming a fundamental enabler of smart communities."

Frost & Sullivan has recently conducted a webinar on "Moving toward Smart Communities in Europe". During the meeting, Saverio Romeo discussed the main developments of smart cities and communities in Europe, highlighting the current role of the mobile industry and its potential in the coming years.

The webinar would be interesting for the entire mobile industry from mobile network operators to mobile device manufacturers including mobile computing developers. Local authorities, governments, universities and other organizations might also be interested in hearing about smart communities and cities projects.
