While many cities struggle to keep up with the pace of innovation, Kungsbacka, Sweden is taking the lead. As the number of Internet-connected devices continues to grow, the city government partnered with Cisco to prepare for the IoT future.
“Time is usually a detriment when it comes to large-scale projects. But thanks to Cisco, Cygate, and my team's diligent work, we've moved at an incredibly fast pace. A project that should have taken five years or more is scheduled for completion in less than 24 months. This is good news for those designing the new network and those waiting for its [autumn] 2018 implementation.”Fredrik Karlsson, Senior Network Engineer, Municipality of Kungsbacka
