The main objectives of the book are to explore the intersections and interfaces of various communication technologies under the umbrella of 5G and beyond networks as potential enablers for future networked smart cities, and to provide a uniform platform for researchers/industrial stakeholders to refer to design-specific issues for the integration of different architectural components of smart cities along with the potential future research perspectives. Future cities are expected to face several challenges of resource/energy shortage, traffic congestion, sustainability and safety with the ever-increasing trend of higher worldwide population being shifted to the city areas (United Nations predicts more than 68% of worldwide population to live in urban areas by 2050). To address these issues, recent advances in communication technologies, information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructures, sensing and communication devices, cloud and edge computing, data analytic, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence techniques will play a crucial role. To this end, the convergence of emerging communication technologies, the underlying ICT infrastructures and several Internet of Things (IoT) verticals, including connected cars, industrial automation, E-health and smart-grid, is indispensable to enable an integrated enabling platform for future smart and connected societies.
