Internet of Things (IoT) is enabling Smart City initiatives all over the world through IoT applications that leverage connectivity, Big Data and analytics. These new applications introduce tremendous new capabilities such as remotely monitoring, managing and controlling devices, and creating new insights and actionable information from massive streams of real-time data.
