International operators, cities and municipal bodies have begun to install hybrid cellular and Wi-Fi networks, supported by Passpoint (Hotspot 2.0) technology to deliver a better user experience, better coverage, reduced operating costs and carrier-grade support for services like CCTV, smart traffic management and other applications to help the city run efficiently. We’ll explore how the infrastructure can support public Wi-Fi access, public services and how it plays an important role in connecting the unconnected, with live use cases from Dallas County and Manhattan.
