What are Smart Cities and a Smart Transportation Systems without a Cyber Secured Smart Grid Fortified Network?

For the last 60 years, transportation experts have been trying to improve fluidity and reduce congestion using some other way than investing in the building of new roads and other infrastructures. After several trials and errors, this gave rise, 20 years ago, to a new practice in surface transport called Intelligent Transportation Systems. This practice consists essentially in the digitization of the transport system through integrated IT and OT solutions that will require a robust network with quality of service. In other words, ITS will require electricity and telecommunication infrastructure. The four main pillars of our ground transportation system: roads, rail, air, sea – are directly impacted by the digitization of their operations, for security, safety, regulation of the traffic flow for transportation of goods and people. The implementation of technologies in the last mile, similar to the first generation of fiber to the home concept in 2000, allows public and private organizations to provide data that demonstrates the benefits and positive impacts on operating in their daily lives. The critical mission of such system is to better balance the offer and the demand in transportation. Between the IT giants, energy, telecommunication carrier, automation and engineering consulting; the administrative priorities of each public and para public clients, in 2017, can be very complex for one reason: How we communicate and secure our digital infrastructure?
