According to IDC's latest IoT Spending Guide, a total of US$11.3 billion will be spent on public safety and emergency response systems in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) by federal and local governments. While they provide a way for cities to respond to potential disasters, they also help Smart City officials to handle infrastructure issues, traffic re-routing, and evacuation procedures, if needed. "IoT-enabled disaster management solutions riding on the backbone of strong 4G and 5G networks are becoming essential investments for enterprises, governments, and city councils in Asia/Pacific to predict, prevent, respond to, and address impending natural and terror disasters," says Shaily Shah, research manager, Internet of Things, IDC Asia/Pacific.
