Opportunities in the Asia-Pacific Smart City Ecosystem

Asia-Pacific is a frontier of growth, development, and activity having quickly embraced disruptive trends in its journey to grow. This ecosystem depicts an eclectic mix of cities. This research service explores the dynamics, plans, and trends in the developments of smart cities in the Asia-Pacific region. It explores how governments, companies, and citizens contribute to making cities smart. It encapsulates what leaders are doing today to plan smarter cities for tomorrow. While markets such as Japan and South Korea already have fairly intelligent cities, others such as Thailand and Indonesia are slowly setting up smaller projects in governance and citizen services.

2 Several government agendas in this region are driving the building of smarter cities in Singapore, Japan, China, 2 and South Korea. Communication service providers and network service partners play a key role in forming the technological backbone to roll-out smart cities. Singtel in Singapore and Telstra in Australia have laid out $ million and $ million, respectively, to enable smart city technology platforms and infrastructure.

3 Smart energy management systems and smart grid projects in Japan form test beds for smart communities as these projects have developed solutions that can be integrated on the same platform across old and new
technologies from wireless mesh to smart thermostats.

4 Emerging countries, such as Malaysia and Indonesia, are imbibing the best practices of nursing robotics from Japan, mHealth solutions from Australia, and integrated healthcare services from Singapore in order to
strengthen their smart healthcare portfolios.
