The age of connectivity has dawned upon us, and it has become an urgent need to revamp our urban landscapes so that they can make the most of this developing technology and tackle the smart city challenges of today. After all, most cities in India aren’t exactly appropriately developed. There are a large number of issues that plague our urban landscapes, and these need to be rectified quickly to uplift the current living situation.

However, the one thing that needs to be kept in mind at all times is that these developments won’t happen instantaneously. Specific steps need to be carried out one-at-a-time if these smart city challenges need to be tackled effectively – a concept that is easier said than done. Therefore, to help coherently achieve this goal, one such significant step that can be taken is to utilise the technology of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and smart panels, which can go a long way in ensuring that these challenges can be met with relative ease.

One of the most significant smart city challenges that must be addressed is the prevalent and commonplace issue of power distribution. One need only look at the current situation in India to understand this challenge – blackouts and outages have become increasingly prevalent in the country, to the point where the general populace has become used to these issues. It’s evident that this is not an ideal case in the slightest, which makes it imperative to see to it that these two forms of technology are implemented sooner than later. This will help in the accomplishment of the following goals:


Any fluctuations in voltage will be highly debilitating for the overall functionality of electrical units and equipment, for obvious reasons. Therefore, to ensure that the lifespan of these appliances is improved immensely, cities should ideally adopt the latest IIoT and smart panels technology to help augment the functionality of a distribution management system.


One of the significant benefits of adopting the latest smart city technology is the increased level of connectivity. This will allow cities to employ the system of advanced process control with relative ease and will enable one to tackle the smart city challenges of today with greater effectivity and efficiency.


Big data analytics is one of the major trends that’s riding the wave of digital transformation, and it must be said that smart panels and the Industrial Internet of Things will help in the collection of data imperative to the running of buildings or sectors. So, by implementing this technology, one will be able to analyse the data and understand the best course of action that can be taken to optimise any inefficiencies that might be plaguing these cities and impeding them in their goal of tackling the challenges faced in forming a smart city.

Therefore, it’s important for cities to adopt the technology of smart panels as soon as possible so that these smart city challenges can be tackled with relative ease. The real-time analysis of this data will go a long way in ensuring that one can keep track of an electrical system’s status, regardless of its scale.
