    The recent conferences Smart Cities Week (Silicon Valley) and Smart to Future Cities showcased the importance of smart cities in different regions. An obvious difference between the two events is that while both were centred on smart cities, Smart Cities Week (SCW) had a stronger focus on the North American market while Smart to Future Cities had a stronger focus on the European one. While the location of the events (Santa Clara, California for the SCW and London for Smart to Future Cities) clearly was key in shaping attendance and focus an important lesson to be learned is that local and regional ties, culture, and ecosystems are bound to play a significant role in the development of individual markets.

    The recent IoT Asia 2017 tradeshow held in Singapore attracted over 4,500 attendees across the entire IoT value chain from over 40 countries over the two-day event. During the show representatives from various companies were especially interested in LPWA technologies, especially unlicensed technologies, such as LoRaWAN and SIGFOX. In Asia Pacific, most vendors deploying LPWA networks early will use NB-IoT, including China Mobile, China Unicom, and KT, all of which will commence with commercial deployments in early 2017. Australia’s Telstra is an exception, having announced that it will start with eMTC first, then follow up with NB-IoT. As Asia continues to embrace LPWA technologies, will it scale fast enough to meet the market demand?
