Smarter cities and HP at Mobile World Congress 2014

Edlund.jpgJeff Edlund, Chief Technology Officer for HP’s Communications and Media Solutions business unit is optmistic about the future of smart cities.


In fact, to hear him tell it, the groundwork for the smart city has already been laid. “The infrastructure is available today,” he says. “The key technology factor in implementation is a rich ecosystem of devices and services that will enhance the lives of urban dwellers.” Jeff also notes that many city dwellers are paying for these services today, and more will be willing to participate in the economy in the future.


Jeff plans to convey even more insight when he takes the stage at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. In his session, Smart Cities: Smarter Living, he plans to highlight how HP solutions are enabling the proliferation of intelligent devices, connected over a robust network. “HP technologies exist in all layers of the delivery of a smart city,” Jeff says. “From Cloud infrastructures, M2M service platforms—even the devices themselves—HP has most of the technology required.”  But HP can’t do it alone. “All the municipality needs to provide is the connectivity framework,” Jeff notes.


Mobile World Congress sets the blueprint for mobile innovation. Whatever is coming next in the fast-paced world of mobility, you’ll likely find it either announced on stage, showcased in an exhibition, or conceived during one of the thousands of meetings taking place during the week.


Don’t miss Smart Cities: Smarter Living

Conference Session, Hall 4 | Tuesday, February 25, 2014 | 14:00 – 15:30 PM

A growing population and limited resources are changing the way in which many cities are delivering services to their citizens. Many public and private bodies are working to ensure that the cities of the future will be safe and sustainable environments and mobile will be the backbone to much of this environment. Through intelligently-connected infrastructure, people and cars, the use of real-time analytics and response can generate insights to help cities to plan and deliver services more effectively. These insights can also help citizens to use services more efficiently, from reducing car emissions to lowering energy bills. In this session, find out how mobile is playing a key role in transforming the future of the city and how the broad ecosystem is coming together to enable smart cities.
