Taiwan Smart City Project

$170 Million 4G Smart City Webinar

Taiwan: Turn to 4G in 2015

It is estimated that the number of global smart cities will expand from

21 to 88 between 2013-2025. The main purpose of building a Smart

City is to solve resource shortage issues by using ICT technology, and

by enhancing resource utilization more efficiently in order to improve

the quality of city life. The U.S. and Europe are both in the forefront of

this new application. In 2013, Taiwan began its shift to 4G and is

looking to catch up with this trend.

$170 Million 4G Smart City Project

As part of efforts to accelerate Taiwan’s development of fourth-generation

(4G) wireless services,Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs

plans to fund local mobile carriers, system integrators, and other SME

companies in the related sectors of smart city application beginning

in December 26, 2014. This three-year project, which aims to build

smart cities based on “mature business models”, will allow telecom or

information communications technology (ICT) operators to apply for

subsidies for 4G applications such as security, health management,

cash flow, entertainment, transportation, and logistics.
