Smart Cities require a large scale and high performance open network, tasked with carrying vast amounts of IoT data from connected devices and building infrastructure while simultaneously guaranteeing sensitive information remains private. To do this many factors need to be considered: policy for traffic prioritization, techniques for network partitioning, common APIs and standards, and shared data and security models. Should a smart city network be a shared infrastructure following a public utility model? To what extent do smart city networks need to be open while remaining secure? What open network initiatives do we need to enable building large scale networks for smart cities?
