Thierry Spanjaard, CEO Intelling and Chief Editor for Smart Insights publications declares "Smart Cities will not only deliver a brighter future for humanity, they are also a tremendous opportunity for all segments in the secure transactions industry."

Intelling is pleased to announce it is publishing a new Smart Insights White Paper covering the Smart Cities emerging market. Published in partnership with Cartes Secure Connexions, the international exhibition for the digital security industry, the White Paper covers all major market segments deploying smart solutions, and provides information about many projects being currently deployed.

In the last years, smart cities have become a frame of reference ensuring consistency between all the modalities linking people to their wider communities and public authorities. New technologies are being used to provide housing, transportation and energy in a more sustainable way than today.

The mass adoption of internet, smart devices (e.g. smartphones, tablets, computers) and mobile applications, NFC and contactless payments, among others, are leading to the redefinition of many public services. Moreover, the increasing use of big data allows the governments and businesses to rethink their systems more efficiently.

There are more than 250 cities testing smart city projects throughout the world. The Smart Insights White Paper presents smart cities projects being developed in Barcelona, New York, London, Nice and Singapore, which were ranked the top smart cities of 2015, following an analysis of each city’s ‘smart’ capabilities, with particular focus on their use of smart grids, smart traffic management and smart street lighting, alongside aspects such as technological capability and social cohesion, among others.

All of this, and a lot more, is described in Smart Insights White Paper “Smarter cities for a smarter future”. The White Paper can be downloaded free of charge from our website at

Smart Insights will be present on booth 3 D 012 at Cartes Secure Connexions 2015 event, Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center, France, November 17 – 19, 2015.
