“More cities tan Smart”

On September 30 took place in the CosmoCaixa building in Barcelona, the 13th edition of “La Diada de les Telecomunicacions a Catalunya”. Organized by the Telecommunications Engineers Association of Catalonia (COETTC), has become one of the most important ICT events in Spain.

A delegation of SII CVTeam attended this meeting to take part in a roundtable called 'More Cities tan Smart', in which we bring our experience as technology partners of Municpal Institute of Informatics in the iCity project iCity Project, along with other companies driving the Smart City, as Abertis Telecom, Endesa, FHIOS, CAT-INFO or DS3 Cities.

In welcoming the event, Ferran Amago, Dean of the Catalan Telecommunications Engineers College , perfectly summed up both the present and the future of the Smart City: 'The smart cities are no longer a chimera, are a tangible reality, a common challenge that has gained weight in the tech world in recent years. (...) ICT give cohesion to society, and smart Citizens are now a reality. Moreover, telecommunications and our engineers are largely responsibles for the globalization'.

Apart from the 10 thematic round tables proposed by the COETTC; the attendees were also able to attend an interesting inaugural conference by the economist Santiago Niño Becerra, as well as a special area dedicated to Networking, and finally to the delivery of the Telecommunications Excellence Awards.
