Alcatel-Lucent: Smart cities are no longer a luxury. They are a necessity 2012.10.27

Saudi Arabia - October 25, 2012 - Smart cities affect our everyday life. What we are living in today is all part of Smart Cities, from social media that we access, from the telephone we are using, to the elevator we use to get up to our offices. Smart cities affect the way to drive, the way to use our water and power, the way we live at home watching TV or cooking a meal. Smart city is everywhere.

Saudi citizens are excited about the opportunity to have a voice in smart city development, satisfying basic need for Internet connectivity and a safe, modern way of life as well as supporting their entrepreneurial goals.

Smart cities affect our everyday life.

What we are living in today is all part of Smart Cities, from social media that we access, from the telephone we are using, to the elevator we use to get up to our offices.

Smart cities affect the way to drive, the way to use our water and power, the way we live at home watching TV or cooking a meal.

Smart city is everywhere.

Providing a smart building means fully integrating technology with energy systems to provide end users with an interactive, convenient, and luxurious automated environment.

The process starts from the time of concept development and becomes a part of the building’s soul, reflecting on the very identity of the project.


Not only does this futuristic yet accessible technology benefit end users, it reduces energy-related expenses for your business and helps the environment, too.

Having every building connected, having every system within every building connected is not enough.

Having the proper processes, programs and people to manage the Smart City is an integral part to complete the cycle.

Smart Cities affect the citizens and the administration of the city.

Imagine that time saving, instead of every tenant worrying about their bandwidth connections, the unit comes pre-plugged and all they have to do is select the type of service that meet their need and budget.

Imagine instead of having each tenant worry about the maintenance of their lighting, utility, and other system.

Those systems are monitored electronically and maintenance schedules are provided to the tenant or even being maintained by a central building management body.

On operational front, having the proper smart infrastructure in place increases the life of the property.

How by less upgrades, less maintenance, faster maintenance, fewer number of maintenance staff, minimizing inspection visits.

With planned maintenance programs of the Smart City, city management will enjoy cost reduction on the long run.

Centralized teams can work to manage the city from a central command and control center.

Cost saving can be achieved in Smart Cities by fewer team members, planned purchase of spare parts, remote monitoring, energy saving programs and so on.

Smart City solutions are the wave of the future.

Implementing them now is a long-term investment in the value and profitability of the city.

Here are just a few of the benefits that come with a smart city:

• Improved productivity across the board, from senior management to all other staff, as a result of the optimized, practical environment

• Increased safety and security as a direct result of the smart systems installed

• Reduced office costs due to centralization and consolidation

• More revenue for commercial buildings, as building owners or operators can provide services at an additional cost

• Reduced ongoing maintenance and operational overhead costs as a result of automated management (preventive measures taken, less opportunities for user error, etc.)

• Higher sustainability index as a result of extending the depreciation period

• Easy monitoring and controlling of all smart features and services

• Increased end-user satisfaction

• Efficient use of resources, both people and material

• Minute control over all functions

• Reduced bills as a result of efficient use of resources and consolidation

• Enhanced accessibility for individuals with disabilities

• Environmental benefits from reduced energy usage - great for companies who want to “go green”.

The advancement in telecommunication has opened many new markets.

One new market is distance working for women.

In Saudi Arabia without a proper public transportation network, commuting is an issue, especially for women.

Leaving the house is an issue in some cultures.

So the availability of technology has made it possible for females to work remotely from home.

Soon with the smart infrastructure reaching smaller towns and villages, a new economy will open for the residence of those remote locations to be able to serve corporates in main cities.

Why stop there, start serving customers even overseas.

Having the proper smart infrastructure around, makes the scree and phone our window to the global market place.

The economy of Saudi Arabia is largely based on Oil.

Yes we do have industries, but the majority of them depend on petrochemicals, again back to Oil.

One of the key movements is to build the knowledge-based economy.

Smart Cities play an important role to build such an economy.

We started to see new sub-economies starting to form in Saudi Arabia.

One of them is what I call the YouTube economy.

We started to see many talent Saudis forming their own YouTube channels with all sorts of programs.

Without having the proper infrastructure and bandwidth connectivity, such YouTube businesses would not have been possible.

People in Saudi stream YouTube shows on their mobile devices including on tablets and phones.

Another sub-economy that is growing is the online gaming.

Saudi Arabia has the highest individual spenders on gaming in the world.

Many young entrepreneurs start to form their own game developing companies, in additional several gaming communities started to form with the most exciting one of them being GCON (Riyadh Girls Gaming Convention).

Thousands of people started their online business from home, shipping products and providing services.

That is the birth of the Saudi e-Commerce economy.

These are just few examples of the new knowledge-based economies that are being built in Saudi; Smart Cities play a big role in that.

It is important to understand that the needs for Smart Cities not just change from Country to Country, but rather are different from city to city and even from one community to the other.

Therefore city planners need to profile and understand the needs of the inhabitants to build the smart city around those needs and the future requirements.

It is not enough to perform studies, the citizen must have an active role in the designing the smart cities.

Living in a Smart City will make everyone focus on productivity and the quality of life, rather than worrying about the infrastructure.

Smart Cities are no longer a luxury, it is a necessity.
