A Smart Approach to Planning Smart Cities

Download now Global population growth and the continued migration from rural to urban areas are placing unprecedented demand on our cities’ infrastructure, energy consumption and services. In its 2011 State of World Population report, the United Nations Population Fund predicted that the world's population will increase from 7 billion in 2011 to 9.3 billion by 2050, and as high as 15 billion by 2100. Coupled with this dynamic, while 50% of the world’s population currently lives in urban areas, within 35 years this will grow to 67%. To remain sustainable, cities need to become smarter.

Better Wireless Coverage in Public Spaces, Advancing the 5G Future — ATIS’ Neutral Host Solution

An innovative new ATIS solution helps operators understand ...

Robocalling and Caller ID Spoofing – Detect, Mitigate and Deter

According to the FCC, robocalls and Caller ID spoofing (often associated with telemarketing) are the number one source of consumer complaints — and I could not agree more.  In a four-hour period last week, I received no less than eight robocalls — everything from surveys, to travel promotions, to political calls, to people claiming they were from the Federal Government and that there was a warrant out for my arrest!
