Saudi Arabia Smart Cities Forum 2007

Filed under: Events — Tags: , , — Khaled A. @ 11:49 am

This forum is organized as part of the Smart Cities initiative, which aims to transform Saudi Arabia’s major cities to smart cities. Smart cities are generally characterized by the availability of advanced broadband communications services and effective electronic applications that help bridge the “digital divide” and improve the economic competence in these cities. Moreover, wireless technologies, notably WiFi-Mesh and WiMax technologies, have gained great momentum by cities around the world as quick and effective technologies for enabling municipal networks.
