With the government focusing on developing smart cities, C-DOT has developed CCSP(C-DOT Common Service Platform) which can be deployed on any off-the-shelf generic server platforms or cloud infrastructure. This platform from C-DOT will enable the smart cities to reap all the benefits of using a standards compliant horizontal service layer and thus be more efficient, economical and future proof.
Recognising C-DOT’s R&D strengths, an India-European Union project called ‘India-EU Cooperation on ICT-Related Standardisation, Policy and Legislation’ is organising a workshop on “Future proof smart cities with a common service layer: a standards driven approach” here Thursday.
Some of the global smart cities will be sharing the standards driven approach they have adopted for building smart cities in their countries.
The workshop aims to provide a platform where foreign and Indian experts from IoT and M2M forums, academia, R&D, industry and senior officials from Ministries of Communications, Urban Development and Electronics and Information Technology and cities named in Indian Smart Cities project can interact to share knowledge and experiences. It is also planned to enrich the interaction by inviting City Councillors from Europe and Korea who have actually implemented smart city projects in their respective cities.
