The Connected Citizens Catalyst is a proof of concept of a Smart City Business Digital Platform. It delivers the digital capability for smart services in today’s dynamic cities. Services that deliver cleaner, safer, more adaptive and efficient environments for inhabitants, enterprises and visitors alike. The Connected Citizens platform enables developers and providers to create and deploy innovative services for cities and citizens. It is based TM Forum Open APIs and a scalable cloud of enabling solutions.

As a first step, the team produced a set of new smart city defined use cases (mobility, security, efficiency, etc), to allow the release of an MVP model for universities or local PoCs. These will address TM Forum’s City as a platform manifesto.

The Connected Citizens platform contains new capabilities on a cloud-designed digital business platform:

  • New smart (dynamic) network capabilities with a class of services using AI/SDN/NFV
  • Gateway for IoT connectivity, collection, management including Fiware standards
  • Enhanced security for IoT and digital services in Smart Cities (secure the components, their links, their data, transactions within a GDPR framework)
  • Build Personal/Object authentication, document/component certification, reward system, contract mgmt, data privacy with a blockchain-like implementation
  • Enable quick digital services build & integration with self-service, self-sufficient APIs from TM Forum
  • Aggregate, store, analyze data with AI from machine learning/deep learning in data lakes

The so-called champions of this partnership are Saint-Quentin, Nice, Orange, and NTT Group. Participating are Forgerock, BearingPoint, infosim, civimetrix, and globetom. More info can be found on TMForum’s website.
