Today’s smart cities depend on broadband systems for every aspect of their operations. Municipal systems for transportation, energy, health and education, water, sewage, and other vital services heavily depend on broadband networks. In addition, virtually all forms of businesses would be severely compromised if they lost their broadband mobility networks. On top of everything else security and video surveillance systems that protect cities and aid first responders are dependent on broadband systems. Especially challenging is the ability of broadband wireless systems to keep up with demand because of the frequency shortages due to rapidly escalating public and professional demand for expanded services.
