Highly secure communication and high-speed internet connectivity are the key benefits encouraging the use of these advanced networking systems.  

The development of smart cities will serve as a major growth impetus for the market. Citing an instance, as per government sources, there are 1,000 smart city pilot projects across the world, 500 of which are housed in China. The nation has already spent USD 46.52 billion development of smart cities in 2017.
