access icon openaccess ITU-T standardisation activities on smart sustainable cities

This study highlights the standardisation activities that are being carried out by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) via its Study Group 20, the United for Smart Sustainable Cities (U4SSC) initiative and other venues, in supporting the adoption of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in smart sustainable cities (SSCs). These standards include common terminologies for the Internet of Things (IoT) and SSCs, the requirements for high performing ICT infrastructures, and the interoperability between different ICT or IoT networks. The work of ITU has encouraged the integration of ICTs into SSC, promoted sustainable and inclusive growth, and supported cities worldwide in reaching the United Nations’ sustainable development goals.
