How Smart Cities Benefit from Fiber Optic Technology

We are living in a data-driven world. For smart cities, this is where fiber optic technology is key. Data - and the sensors and technology used to collect it - is central to smart city development. It gives decision-makers valuable insights to efficiently manage assets, resources and services. Surprisingly, however, smart city designers are often challenged by basic data-gathering. From the early planning stages, it is vital to understand what elements need sensing, what data is required and how to best measure and analyze it constructively. The right technology is already here….fiber optic telecommunication cables can be used as sensors; Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology uses fiber networks to provide continuous sensing along the full length of an asset….DAS easily taps into already-laid fiber optic networks.
