As India is swiftly moving towards realizing the dream of smart cities, the demand for high-performance edge computing and IoT based systems that provide new ways for cities to effectively address the issues of pollution, energy and waste management is rising. According to a report by Infoholic Research, the smart cities market in India is expected to become USD 47.70 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 18.5%. Government of India’s push to equip cities with institutional, physical, social and economic infrastructure for sustainable and inclusive development of cities has been driving the market growth further. However, despite the huge investments and initiatives by the government, the urban planners and system integrators of smart cities face a lot of challenges owing to lack of integrated solutions that could help them meet the demands of smart cities ranging from energy management, water management and waste management to pollution, traffic, telecom and healthcare.
