Guardian 20 spoke to Vice President, Marketing & Strategy, Tata Communications, Amit Sinha Roy about how Tata Communications are helping in building Smart cities and he said, “What we presented today is the capability that we have from the Tata Communication on the provider side so when people talk about fifth generation 3G, 4G, 5G is the last mileage. That’s what basically devices connect onto. At Tata Communication our capabilities are there from the backend in terms of 200 plus thousand kilometers fiber cabling that we have around the world. That allows us to have connectivity across 100 of countries so we power the network leveraging our wide reach globally. In smart cities, you will see IOT being there to control various things- it could be street lighting, security, traffic management, safety, health so IOT and other technologies help automate and connect them.”
