Introduction of A Secure Smart City Model using IoT Applications and Communication Networks

 The Internet of Things (IoT) is getting more and more space in the modern lifestyle across the globe. It is becoming common with the passage of time from emergency services to industrial applications, public safety, public transportation, as well as the lighting of the cities. There are multiple factors that are playing their role in enhancing the use of IoT in daily life especially in urban settings like urban cities are getting more populated so these cities need more space, smart management as well as better planning to cope with increasing demands. If IoT will not be integrated into the modern cities, then things can get difficult in the future because it is important to use technology so that infrastructure can be managed with better planning as well as control. The smart applications based on IoT will help in so many ways. The smart cities will not only be able to manage operations effectively, but it can also cut various costs by finding pertinent solutions to manage city operations (Hassanien, Elhoseny, Ahmed, & Singh, 2018). In this paper, the literature will be reviewed from different sources to get an idea of secure smart cities which can be developed with the help of IoT applications and communication networks.

Review of Literature

 It is important for the world to understand that a growing population is a huge problem, and if things are not managed accordingly, then it would be impossible to handle so much population in the future. Big cities are getting populated with the passage of time and this growing number is not stopping anywhere. A prediction made by the UN is that the urban population of the world is going to be doubled until 2050. This stat is worrying in so many ways that how the world is going to cope with the double population in urban areas after 31 years from now on because the world is facing so many issues right now to handle the demands and needs of the current population. The big cities around the world are dealing with various issues due to a growing number of people, and they are trying to find smart ways to manage things in an effective and efficient manner (Grizhnevich, 2018). It is vital to look at existing models being used in the different smart cities around the world so that future models can be developed with considerable points to be implemented for the secure smart city (Hassanien, Elhoseny, Ahmed, & Singh, 2018)

Key Factors for Applying IoT in Secure Smart Cities

 With the development of smart city with a communication network based on IoT, it is important to find ways to integrate applications, devices, systems, operations with the lifestyle of people. A research study was conducted in 2014 by Goldman Sachs Equity Research Group, which revealed that workplace productivity, personal lifestyle, as well as consumption patterns, will be affected by IoT in so many ways. The group also revealed that internet users during the 90s were just 1 billion, and now it has been estimated that the number of things to be connected until 2020 will be around 28 billion. This shows the huge potential as well as the impact of IoT in daily life, and the way globalization is getting common, this boom in IoT is going to continue with rapid speed (Jankowski, Covello, Bellini, Ritchie, & Costa, 2014). However, it is important to mention here that research on this topic has not been too extensive in number, rather limited research has been found so far, because this concept is relatively new, and grabbing the attention with the passage of time. However, one thing is obvious that IoT is going to be an indispensable element for future smart and secure cities, as technologies related to IoT have great potential to transform and change the daily life of people across the globe (Hammi, Khatoun, Zeadally, & Fayad, 2017)
