Boyd Cohen: "From Smart City to Gigabit City" (Day 1 closing keynote)

So you build a fiber network capable of delivering gigabit to the home. Now it's time to plan for the future city. The fiber network may provide some unique opportunities. But the opportunities you address when thinking about your ICT network naturally intersect with other urban questions around mobility, sustainability and all sorts of other “ilities”. The U.S. isn’t the frontier of gigabit cities, and it isn’t the frontier of smart cities either.

Renowned Smart Cities expert Boyd Cohen takes a look at how this movement has progressed in Europe, Asia and South America—and look at the implications for the US and Canada.
